Dafoe’s Joker

It’s pretty hard to imagine recasting the Joker at this point, so close to Heath Ledger’s immortal portrayal of the clown prince of crime. But we’ll have to do it eventually, and one fan thinks they know who might be a good pick.

Artist Jeff Stahl has worked some photoshop magic to give us this terrifying rendition of what Willem Dafoe might look like as the Joker. I love this interpretation, which really looks more similar to the comics than either Jack Nicholson or Ledger’s Joker. And honestly, with that voice, I could totally see him embodying this role. Plus, he already has comic villain experience as the Green Goblin in Spider-Man. Batman vs. Superman cast an older Batman, so maybe they need an older Joker as well. Perhaps this will give them a bit of inspiration.
