Joaquin Phoenix’s Arthur Fleck gets a classic Joker look with a Batman: The Killing Joke-influenced makeover in new fan art.
New Image Of Ben Affleck As Batman From ‘Justice League’ Released
Todd Philips’ Joker is about seven months away from release and there are no rumors circulating when the first footage could hit, but the film remains an interesting project amongst fans. The upcoming film is said to be the first DC film under a new label, which will focus on standalone, Elseworlds stories.
Joaquin Phoenix’s look was revealed when filming began and many set photos surfaced over the film’s principal photography as well. Phoenix’s appearance is similar to Heath Ledger’s but without the scars and a different colored suit, similar to Cesar Romero’s Joker. Some DC fans were hoping for a classic look inspired by a famous comic book like Batman: The Killing Joke and new art from Dalton Barrett shows what that could look like:

Where does Joaquin Phoenix’s look rank for you among the other live-action versions of the Joker? Comment below!
Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, the film stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.
“Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
Joker will be released in theaters on October 4, 2019.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
