Last week it was reported that Warner Bros. wants to cast Leonardo DiCaprio in the role of The Joker in their upcoming Joker origin film. The studio is hoping that producer Martin Scorsese will be able to lure him into the project.
We have no idea if this is going to work out for the studio or not, but it would certainly be interesting to see DiCaprio in the role and to see him work with Scorsese again on the project. The vision WB has for the film sees the actor playing the Clown Prince of Crime "as a gritty crime boss in a Scorsese-esque Gotham underworld."
Thanks to BossLogic, we now have a piece of fan art that envisions the actor as The Joker and he definitely looks sinister in the role. But, what do you expect? We are talking about The Joker here, and he always looks sinister!.
