Warner Bros. looks to be swinging for the fences when it comes to The Joker.
Not only has the studio entered negotiations with legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese about the possibility of producing the “super dark” origin movie, one which Todd Phillips (The Hangover) would direct, but just the other week we heard that WB brass are targeting none other than Leonardo DiCaprio for the gig.
Details are scarce, and it’s unclear how the studio plans to incorporate the A-list star into the mix if The Joker is to be an origin story involving the Clown Prince of Crime, but given that The Wolf of Wall Street actor hasn’t been confirmed for the job just yet, fans have been putting forth tons of suggestions for who could take the role, and one person who’s found himself with quite a bit of support is none other than Christian Bale. »
