We have seen many great actors playing The Joker in the history of cinema, from Jack Nicholson, to the late Heath Ledger and Jared Leto. And we will see other great actors playing The Joker in the future, because he is a very important character and villain in Batman’s world.
Recently, Vanity Fair has posted on Instagram the question no one has ever asked. ‘Wait, does Warner Bros. really expect Leonardo DiCaprio to play the Joker?’ No one has ever thought that DiCaprio would join Warner Bros. to become the most known villain. Actually, he has refused the Spider-Man role in the past, which eventually went to Tobey Maguire. So, maybe he doesn’t want to play the superhero, but he would like to play the villain.
Vanity Fair also said that ‘With Martin Scorsese in your corner, anything is possible.’ So, maybe DiCaprio’s beloved director and mentor will make him change his mind, so he could become the Joker? We will have to wait and see. We couldn’t possibly watch Leonardo DiCaprio playing the Joker, but if he accepts the role, he will be a great Joker.
Since he won his first Oscar for ‘The Revenant’ in 2016, DiCaprio hasn’t been seen in any movie. But he hasn’t been on a break either. He is a great environmentalist for many years, so in 2016 he created the documentary ‘Before the Flood’, which had a huge success. He also signed recently for joining the cast of his upcoming movies ‘Killers of the Flower Moon’ and ‘The Black Hand’.
