If Jack Nicholson had been given the same script that Heath Ledger was given, Ledger's performance would have seemed journeyman at best.


Calling bullshit on this one. Ledger owned the role top to bottom.

Ledger didn't have to play a campy Joker like Nicholson. Watch the Shining sometime. Nicholson would have crushed oxy boy's efforts if Nicholson would have been giving the same role.

Derp Daniel Day Lewis would have been sooooo much better in The Shining. He woulda made Jackie look like Jennifer Lopez in Gigli.

I think I have to agree. Nicholson's Joker was dancing in a museum and did a lot of laughing. Tim Burton wasn't very good at portraying the Joker's transformation or exactly how far he'd be willing to go. But Nicholson played what he was given to perfection. After watching TDK and seeing Ledger's performance you can really appreciate how great Nicholson played the Joker.

Ledger played a great role too. The main difference is he was a lunatic from the beginning.... no transformation from being a low level guy into the mob boss. He just marches in and takes over the mob.

Ledger's Joker was definitely crazier, more evil and the probably the most bad ass villain ever to grace a superhero movie. Nicholson played the role better with a much weaker script.

The hell? :blink:

What's next? Seth Rogen as Darkseid?

 

Snyder's Luthor will follow Birthright and Smallville influences. I think this was some inspired casting. Eisenberg beat out Phoenix for the role. Who knows? This will either be Ledger 2.0 (except, you know, Jesse won't die) OR this will be an epic fail of massive proportions. You can't say Zack is conservative, at least. This was a ballsy move.

I'd rather have Cranston as Jim Gordon

 

 

He would make an awesome Gordon. Nice call.

 

 

in this instance, he would have made a better batman
