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:
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.
