So it goes.
While Heath Ledger did an amazing job as the Joker, he only made one film. Not enough to make it his own.
It will be easier for someone to come in and play the Joker because it only really requires good acting. Physically he could be played by just about anyone in Hollywood right now.
And let me tell you, what's your deal with Iron Man? Robert Downy Jr. is a wimp.
There are a plethora of actors who can do a better job of playing Tony Stark.
Joker's definitely up for grabs, although for a new Batman they might go Lizardman on us and not retrace Nolan's villains
Jack Nicholson > Heath imo, RIP
Aron Baynes vs David Stern Trailer :
Whoever takes the next stab at the Joker will Ledger's Oscar hanging over their head.
Im trying to think of another example where an actor took on a role that a previous actor won an oscar for.
Theres Hannibal Lecter, but Hopkins did three films, not one so its not quite fair.
Marlon Brando and DeNiro both won oscars for playing Vito Corleone so I guess it CAN be done.
I dont see why that is so funny.
Zach Snyder is an alright director. He's got some visual chops, so he's not a hack, but I didn't care for Watchmen. It had a good look, but it didn't work for me. Dawn of the Dead...it was decent until the zombie baby shit. i still prefer the original.
300 is his best film, but I oddly prefer sucker punch. i don't even know if it's a good movie, probably not, but least it didn't feel like he was just copying the pages of a graphic novel. plus all the chicks were very bangable, so it's a guilty pleasure for me.
lol his voice is stupid!!1!!!!
Doubt: Philip Seymour Hoffman
Milk: Josh Brolin
Revolutionary Road: Michael Shannon
i dont like it when they do reboots, when there are so many villains in those series that still hasnt been explored...
I think Jonnhy Depp could easily step into the Jokers role.
Im not taking anything away from ledgers performance by any means. His oscar was well deserved and he carried TDK.
I just think that johnny depp is one guy that could slip into that same dark disturbed role and do it somewhat justice.
LOL Johnny Depp with his Jack Sparrow impression as the Joker.
I couldn't take him seriously to be honest.
you guys act like heath ledger only played the joker in his whole career. He was in other crummy movies too. Nobody saw THAT joker coming based on his previous roles.
To blow off depp just because he played sparrow is dumb.

Thesp also mulling offer to topline Greg Berlanti's 'Replay'
By Jeff Sneider, Justin Kroll
With Christopher Nolan declaring himself out of the running for "Justice League," Warner Bros. has approached another of its go-to directors in Ben Affleck, who's expected to discuss the project with studio brass in the coming days, multiple sources tell Variety.
Since guiding WB's "The Town" to commercial success and critical acclaim from both sides of the camera, Affleck has ascended high on the studio's list of filmmakers who can be trusted with prime properties. Thus far, Affleck is the only candidate who's been sent Will Beall's "Justice League" script, which the "Gangster Squad" scribe was hired to write last summer.
DC Comics' answer to Marvel's Avengers, "Justice League" is expected to bring together marquee characters Batman and Superman, as well as Green Lantern, Wonder Woman and The Flash. Affleck has made it clear that he's only interested in directing films in which he also stars -- "The Town" and "Argo" are proof of that -- so its likely that if this pairing ever came to fruition, he would don a suit of his own. DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. and Affleck's reps declined to comment.
While Affleck has shown an aptitude for mid-budget movies, he's poised to prove he can handle a nine-figure budget like other actors-turned-directors Jon Favreau ("Iron Man") and Kenneth Branagh ("Thor").
One possible hesitation on Affleck's part is that any involvement with "Justice League" would take him out of circulation as a director for a few years. He could, however, still fit in an acting gig at Warners.
Affleck has spent the last several weeks mulling an offer to star in topline Greg Berlanti's long-gestating sci-fi drama "Replay," which WB has spent more than a decade developing. Based on Ken Grimwood's 1987 bestseller, story follows a man who dies and gets the chance to relive his life over and over again, changing partners and professions each time.
As a director, Affleck is also keen to bring another epic adaptation to the bigscreen: Stephen King's "The Stand," a potential two-part pic that will be a co-production between CBS Films and Warners. Should Affleck sign on for "Justice League," it remains unclear whether WB would wait for him to move forward on "The Stand" or bring on another filmmaker.
Warner Bros. took control of DC Comics in 2009, folding the comicbook company into the studio and re-launching it as DC Entertainment to better manage how its characters wind up on the big and small screens. The CW will air "Arrow," based on the Green Arrow character this fall, but the studio hasn't greenlit any new films since "Man of Steel," which bows summer 2013. Other pics based on Wonder Woman and the Flash also are in development, but are only in script stages.
"Justice League" won't likely be ready for release until summer 2015, which could put it up right against Marvel's "Avengers 2," which has Joss Whedon returning to helm.
Since making his directorial debut in 2007 with "Gone Baby Gone," Affleck has been balancing acting and directing duties. After "The Town," he signed on to work with Terrence Malick on "To the Wonder" before returning to Warners for "Argo," which preems at Toronto next month. Multihyphenate recently wrapped New Regency's online gambling pic "Runner, Runner," and is also developing a movie about Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger with fellow "Good Will Hunting" Oscar winner Matt Damon.
This movie looks awful.
Now that tdk trilogy is over we're seriously looking at five to four years of shitty, dark, over serious super hero movie rip offs

The Greatest Moment In The History Of The World:
I just hope they don't screw up Justice League. I have faith in Batman and Superman, but I haven't seen Green Lantern lol. I'm afraid to. Is it good?
