Despite losing the role of the  Clown Prince of Crime, famed actor Adrien Brody still has hopes of one day donning the green hair and red lips. "I would do it if I feel I can contribute something valuable and that the role would be interesting to me because they're long journeys. To me, the villains are way fun!" Said the Oscar winner. "But they don't offer me those roles. If there is an opportunity to do something like that and play a comic book hero or villain, that’s not something I’m fundamentally opposed to." While there has been no indication that the Joker will appear in Batman vs Superman or Justice League, it is encouraging to hear someone ready to take on the mantle and try to leave their own stamp on the character after a legendary performance from Heath Ledger. Would you guys like to see Mr. Brody portray the Clown Prince of Crime in the near future? Sound off below!

Idk... he could either be amazing or awful...
sameoldthing - 5/20/2014, 2:31 PM
Why not?...c'mon people,Ledger was really well received at first but he nailed The Joker.
Brody physically looks more Joker than Jack Nicholson or Heath Ledger.
He's a decent actor..who knows?
Highflyer - 5/20/2014, 2:31 PM
Erm... Maybe...
Highflyer - 5/20/2014, 2:32 PM
He might be able to do something different and awesome.
sameoldthing - 5/20/2014, 2:32 PM
Ledger NOT well received I meant..oops
TheManFromMars - 5/20/2014, 2:35 PM
Sure, why not?

I'd be down for it.
Nubase - 5/20/2014, 2:35 PM
this batman is 8 years a crime fighter, the fact is he may have already killed the joker a la dark knight returns or he is locked up in asylum, but l don't think we will see him anytime soon
TheAbaryMan369 - 5/20/2014, 2:36 PM
Uh......... No. No thank you WB.
dio - 5/20/2014, 2:39 PM
Him or that dude from Hannibal and Boardwalk Empire
ALegendaryPanda - 5/20/2014, 2:39 PM
I'd like to see this actually!
TheManFromMars - 5/20/2014, 2:40 PM

How many articles do you still have to put up until you become a Trusted User?

'Cause I think you deserve it!
3DWitchHunt - 5/20/2014, 2:40 PM
Brody is a solid actor.
Wouldnt mind this.
TopCat89 - 5/20/2014, 2:42 PM
I remember news of him auditioning....or at least throwing his name in the hat for TDK.

He has the look and (more importantly) the chops too.....I say why not?
MrCBM - 5/20/2014, 2:43 PM
I'm so surprised not many people like this choice. Great actor, I LOVE it.
LuKeTHiGHWalK3R - 5/20/2014, 2:44 PM
@3D- Agreed. Don't understand the hate... Brody has range
MrBlackjack - 5/20/2014, 2:44 PM
@ManFromMars you have to apply to become a trusted user (I think), and I doubt they'll want me as one.
Klone - 5/20/2014, 2:44 PM
Meh... after Ledger we don't have much right to bitch about any Joker casting.
MrBlackjack - 5/20/2014, 2:45 PM
I still have one more news article going up...
Brainiac13 - 5/20/2014, 2:45 PM
This would be a scoop if it happens....


You're on a super Roll!

Vegeta - 5/20/2014, 2:48 PM

MrCBM - 5/20/2014, 2:56 PM

MrCBM - 5/20/2014, 2:57 PM
@Tucks my man! You have any comments on that Fantastic Four casting?
NoTucks2Give - 5/20/2014, 2:58 PM
"But they don't offer me those roles. If there is an opportunity to do something like that and play a comic book hero, that’s not something I’m fundamentally opposed to."

strange indeed
TheBuoyWonder - 5/20/2014, 2:59 PM
That guy from Hannibal seems to be a pretty good joker like character.
(I don't watch the show so I don't really know what I'm talking bout)
Indy - 5/20/2014, 3:01 PM
Sure I wouldn't mind seeing him play the Joker.
QuestiontheAnswer - 5/20/2014, 3:03 PM
He looks like the V mask.
MrFridayNights - 5/20/2014, 3:04 PM

MrBlackjack - 5/20/2014, 3:06 PM
