15 Actors who could play the Joker instead of Leonardo DiCaprio


The new project of Warner Bros. is the film about the origin of the Joker and apparently the producer will be Martin Scorsese, therefore the number one candidate to be the Machiavellian clown of this story is Leonardo DiCaprio.

But an official announcement has not yet been made and other actors could play the famous Batman villain who has already been played by Jared Leto, Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson. Who will be your best successor?

1. Tom Hardy

We already saw him as Bane in The Dark Knight (Batman: the knight of the night), and it made us tremble. We saw it in The Ravenant (The reborn) and gave life to the most violent criminal in the United Kingdom in Bronson. Tom Hardy would be a Joker with an acid and extremely cruel humor.

2. Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake is great acting in dark and bizarre characters, as in Donnie Darko or the intense reporter of Nightcrawler. Seeing him transformed into this character could lead him to obtain an à "scar.

3. Adrien Brody

Adrien was one of the candidates to play the Joker in the films of Christopher Nolan. Why not give it a chance? He is an established actor with a lot of experience; He can make the public love him or hate him.

4. James Franco

The handsome James Franco with his giant smile could play a good youthful version of the Joker. James has such diverse roles and all the qualities to be the iconic villain. He is also known for engaging with his characters, he could be perfect.

5. Cillian Murphy

This Irishman has already incarnated villains in Batman, and other psychopaths, certainly not just a pretty face. He gives that fierceness to his characters and his features turn into pure coldness like when he gives life to Tommy Shelby in Peaky Blinders.

6. Freddie Highmore

We saw this young man in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) in his childhood and now he stars Bates Motel. If you have already been a psychopath why not give life to another, would not you like to see it transformed into the Joker?

7. Iwan Rheon

You imagine this man who incarnated the fearsome Ramsay Bolton in game of Thrones. Without doubt it would be the most malicious Joker that you will see on the screen. He can look like a complete maniac if he wants to.

8. Bill Skarsgård

We will know the performance of this young man in the upcoming premiere of IT (ESO). If he is already an iconic evil clown, why not give life to another?

9. Hayden Christensen

We saw him incarnate Anakin Skywalker in the movies of Star Wars and jump into space in Jumper This actor already gave his voice to the Joker in an animated series of Batman, so he already has experience interpreting it.

10. Rhys Wakefield

Rhys is a little-known actor, but his work as a leader in Purge He proved that he can be a murderous psychopath. Maybe I can make a good interpretation of the Joker.

11. Edward Norton

Remember that in the Fight Club (Fight Club) He looked like a normal boy until he met his alter ego and everything went crazy. This man also has experience on his side, he was already a neo-Nazi leader in American History X (American History X), surely he will also be an incredible Joker.

12. Paul Dano

He is young enough to play a Joker in his beginnings, is also multi-faceted, has been the victim of a kidnapping in Prisoners (Suspicion), a cruel preacher in There Will Be Blood (Bloody Oil) or a lost boy with a flatulent corpse in Swiss Army Man He is a very talented actor who with his strange physique and penetrating gaze can give the villain the extra.

13. Michael Pitt

This actor and musician from New Jersey could also embody a young version of Batman's enemy clown. I could make a Joker completely psychopath, silent but terrifying and glacial.

14. Will Poulter

We saw it together with Leonardo DiCaprio in The Ravenant (The reborn), also in Chronicles of Narnia, The Maze Runner and soon in That. Poulter adds an incredible intensity to his characters, maybe it's good to see him go from cute to terrible.

15. Macaulay Culkin

We have not seen Macaulay Culkin on the big screen for a long time, but you will not deny that it could be an option for this character. Imagine it with the Joker's makeup and that big cruel smile.
