Legendary comic book artist Neal Adams was on Kevin Smith's podcast Fatman on Batman. While speaking about The Dark Knight trilogy and the new Superman reboot he was asked who should take up the mantle of The Joker in the upcoming Batman reboot starring Ben Affleck:
“Here’s a choice for Joker…say we’re looking for another Joker…Matt Smith. He can overcome. He’s not going to seem like a challenge to the previous one. He’s got that look…fan favorite. And he’s got the shape. Everything’s there.”
While the above fan-made picture certainly gives Smith the look of The Joker the actor himself has actually expressed interest in being The Riddler in the upcoming reboot. Can you blame him? Who wants to follow in the footsteps on the late Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.
