JOKER'S WILD 🤡
Which one has been your favorite interpretation so far and how do you think Phoenix will fare?
Of all the actors to dawn the makeup of arguably the most iconic comic book villain of all time, I have to give it to Ledger.
Though Jack Nicholson is so close behind him.
Those 2 #Batman
films are just so damn great.
9.75/10 for both Batman & The Dark Knight
Meanwhile as garbage of a film I found #SuicideSquad
to be, I honestly didn't mind Leto's Joker that much at all, and to be frank I wanted more. --I know there's a director's cut with a lot more footage of him in it, but I'm not gonna sit through that tortuous piece of shit again.
Also, a big shoutout to my Latino brother, Cesar Romero (next slide ➡️) who portrayed the Joker in the 1960's Batman television show and 1966 film.
With the leaked footage of Phoenix in a full on purple suit reminiscent of Romero, terrorizing a subway and the very haunting test footage, I am actually hopeful for the film.
Especially now that I know it has no connection to the clusterfuck that is the #DCEU
Overall, consider me interested in this project.
My early projection is that if it's not Rated R for its theatrical release, this will be for naught.
Especially since Todd Phillips is reportedly going for a Martin Scorsese Taxi Driver vibe for the picture.
What are y'all's thoughts??
