Who Saw this? (Yes, it's offical.)



I must say I am kind of excited to see this performance.

To be honest this Joker seems a bit too lolgrimderp to me. Looks like they went a bit too overboard with the psycho part IMO.
It is precisely because it never cared, that people do care.  It's something which it's lacking, because that which it has, it has lackluster of.

You are now reading this in Robert Belgrade's voice.

Then Lords of Shadow 2 just takes a big, semi-solid, smelly, pea-green dump all over everything.

They have yet to deliver anything as good as Jack Nicholson (or Cesar Romero for that matter).

Why is everyone in the world talking about this? What's the importance? Can I start a thread about how fat everyone is these days?

Well first it's the Joker's 75th Anniversary from DC Comics and The Joker is making an appearance in DC's upcoming (Avengers Counter Movie) Suicide Squad.

Jack Nicholson's Joker I don't think has aged as well as people think, because really it's just Jack Nicholson being Jack Nicholson, in makeup.

Romero on the other hand doesn't get nearly enough love.

To be honest, Hamill is and always will be my favorite Joker, with Ledger closely behind him. That being said, I think it'd be a rash move on anyone's part to judge Leto's actual performance on one photo alone. Clearly they're going to sell the insanity factor as much as possible, judging by said photo, but come on.

Suicide Squad Joker in the comics is wearing someone's fucking face.

It doesn't get much crazier than that. :P

And Jack Nicholson already has experience acting the part of a psychopath. He did so before in The Shining. And I agree with Mark Hamill's voice acting as the Joker.

Romero was awesome as joker. Jack was awesome as joker. Ledger was awesome as joker.

I can't think of anyone who has been cast as joker that sucked.

That's a good sign for Leto.

That's a good point, too bad we can't say the same thing about Batman!

I agree they've all done incredibly, though Jack was my personal favorite.  There seemed a nicer balance of evil criminal mastermind vs. insane and goofy.  Romero was fantastic as well, and also seemed to have a fair bit of both sides.  While I did enjoy Ledger's performance, I was disappointed that there wasn't as much of the goofy-insane part of the Joker.  It was a great movie though.

That's precisely why Hamill's my favorite. In Batman TAS he was - I think - the perfect blend of clown and crazy for the tone of the show, and then when Return of the Joker came along he was solidified as my favorite. The Arkham games Hamill is also excellent, and while I admit his design's a bit over-edgy for my taste, he's an even better balance of clown and crazy than before.

Plus Hamill's laugh is the best Joker laugh in the history of the character, which is kind of a big thing to consider IMO, and no this is not up for debate. :P

Yes. Acting as in voice-acting. It probably wasn't clear in my post but that's just how it came out. Even I have trouble interpreting posts at times  :P

You misread.
Jack Nicholson doesn't act crazy. He is crazy.

I didn't get to watch the Batman cartoon much when I was a kid (no cable at home, and at my grandparent's house where they had cable mom was just strict about what I watched.). I did see a few episodes, and having pulled up some videos to remind myself, I do really enjoy Hamill's voice acting for Joker!
