    I don't know if I know who Sean Penn is, but I saw the new joker/joker girlfriend on the cover of some film magazine... so I'd say it's not a rumour whoever the new joker is.

    Yeah, But don't you have to have a sense of humor to be the Joker? I much prefer the roles where he gets his head exploded, Team America was his best role to date!
    :p

    mehh...
    never been all that impressed , but what do i know ...
    maybe he really is brilliant and i just don't get it .

    really , anyone with a dark sense of humor should do just fine .
    the make up and costume are outrageous enough , so maybe
    he'll be ok ...

    I think Crispin Glover would make an awesome villain in a batman movie. Maybe even as The Joker but probably better as someone else.

    I'm sorry, no one could beat Jack from the first big movie. Looks like somebody chose brandX
     
  8. I disagree. I was never a fan of Nicholson's portrayal. And as far as upping the ante, there was an indie-made Batman short made a year or so ago that had an absolutely delicious Joker in it. Truly maniacal. I wish I could remember what the short was named...

    edit: here's a pic of the Joker I'm referring to:

    Edit AGAIN: the film is called "Batman, Dead End"...

    The Joker from THIS movie (which unfortunately doesn't exist) has an awesome look...best I've ever seen.

    Grayson

    I'd love to see it realized...

    But not nearly as incredible as me just randomly ruminating about what a good villain he would make and then that happening! Get out of my head, Hollywood.

  16. True, he was the only reason to watch the first Charlie's Angels movie. :smug:

    strangely, my friends were talking about how good a joker he would make.
