Jim Carrey turns into The Clown Prince Of Crime for DC and Warner Bros., replacing Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker in this amazing new image.
One of the most prolific and impactful actors of the ’90s was definitely Jim Carrey. If you were born during the ’80s, then you know full well that his over-the-top humor and acting from hit films like Liar, Liar or Ace Ventura were impressive to say the least while growing up. Jim Carrey also ventured into the superhero genre when he did Batman Forever and portrayed Edward Nigma a.k.a. The Riddler. Jim Carrey imprinted his own type of humor on the classic Batman villain and the result was a character that either you loved or hated. Needless to say, it would have been awesome to see Jim Carrey try out other Batman villains like The Joker, for example.
In this amazing image, Jim Carrey replaces the upcoming Joker, Joaquin Phoenix, as the Clown Prince Of Crime as the artist uses an image from another Jim Carrey hit film, The Mask. The classic purple hat and suit worn by The Joker are mirrored in Jim Carrey’s Stanley Ipkiss as he turns into the crazy Mask character, which the artist uses for his advantage to show us how Jim Carrey might look like as the enigmatic Batman villain:
Although Jim Carrey might have been an awesome pick to play The Joker at some point in time, sadly he didn’t have the chance. Now Joaquin Phoenix will portray the villain in the upcoming Joker film and it seems that he will not disappoint. The set videos and photos that leaked all over last fall and the trailer that debuted earlier this year tease that Joaquin Phoenix’s method acting and Todd Phillips’ amazing storytelling abilities will give us a film for fans to remember and cherish.
Do you think Jim Carrey would have been a good Joker? Also, do you think Joaquin Phoenix will continue to portray The Joker for Warner Bros. and DC? Sound off in the comment section down below!
