The Joker movie has found its star but in this new image, you can see Jackie Earle Haley replace Joaquin Phoenix as the next Clown Prince of Crime.

Joaquin Phoenix is set to star as Arthur Fleck/The Joker in the upcoming movie. The psychological thriller style of the movie lends to Joaquin Phoenix’s wide range as an actor. But before, when the role of Joker was open, many fans were speculating who could be the next Joker for the movie. This image sees Jackie Earle Haley in the role of the Clown Prince of Crime.

Here’s a look at what Jackie Earle Haley would look like as The Joker:

I'm not one for fan casts, because most of the time they're shitty and predictable, for example Willem Dafoe as the Joker, but this is a fan cast still. So if Matt Reeve's The Batman really does take place outside the DCEU I really think Jackie Haley would be a perfect choice to play the Joker. Also considering Matt Reeves is a horror director I think they should go for a really grotesque and scary look for the joker. ~Follow for more Joker related content~ ~if u have any requests for future edits please dm~ #joker #thejoker #jeromevaleska #jeromevaleskaedit #gotham #batman #cameronmonaghanedit #cameronmonaghan #dc #jokertwins #jeremiahvaleskaedit #jeremiahvaleska #gothamedit #batmanvillains #gothamvillains #jokeredit #mrj #mrjedit #joaquinphoenix #joaquinphoenixjoker #heathledger #heathledgerjoker #thedarkknight #jacknicholson #jacknicholsonjoker #markhammil #markhammiljoker #cameronmonaghanjoker #jackieearlehaley #jackiehaley

Jackie Earle Haley is no stranger to comic book films. In 2009, he portrayed Rorschach in the Zack Snyder directed film Watchmen and has been in a numerous amount of films since. He also portrayed Freddie Krueger in the 2010 reboot A Nightmare on Elm Street, which could bring a dark, haunting style to the Joker. More recently Jackie Earle Haley was the enforcer Grewishka in Alita: Battle Angel. Since this is a psychological thriller and an R-rated film, it would lend to Jackie Earle Haley’s former roles as villains and horror characters. Joaquin Phoenix, however, is locked in for this role as a psychological Joker now.

Batman Villains Who Deserve A Chance On The Big Screen

Batman’s been on the big screen a handful of times, but he still has so many enemies who’ve never been in a movie. I love the Joker, but man-oh-man am I tired of seeing him. Batman’s got one of the most impressive, deep rogue galleries in all of comics, and I think it’s time more of them were given the love they deserve!

Some of these characters might have been in The Lego Batman Movie (if Kite-Man was, anyone could have been) but that doesn’t really count as an introduction. Look at how well-known someone like Slipknot is now thanks to Suicide Squad. Well, all these people on the list are way better than Slipknot, and should be seen taking on a member of the Bat-Family on the big screen soon.
