It’s now being rumoured that Warner Bros. Pictures is interested in casting Jim Carrey as an alternate version of The Joker in future DC Comics movies.
So, let’s start off by making it clear that this rumour comes from We Got This Covered.
They do have a rather questionable record when it comes to these scoops.
However, there is some obvious truth in this rumour: Warner Bros. Pictures is looking at casting alternate versions of The Joker.
It looks like they want to get Joaquin Phoenix back for a Joker sequel.
However, they also want to cast an actor to play The Joker against Robert Pattinson’s Batman.
There are also rumours that we will end up seeing Jared Leto return as his version of The Joker in a future DCEU movie.
This means there could be three versions of The Joker, and they might be looking at Jim Carrey to play The Joker in the Matt Reeves Batman movies.
Jim Carrey could be about to play an alternate version of the Joker
However, according to WGTC’s sources, this isn’t what they want Jim Carrey for.
Here’s what they wrote in their article on this rumour:
According to our intel, the plan is to establish that Arthur is just the inspiration for Mr. J, not the man himself that will go on to become Batman’s archenemy. In the sequels, we’ll see different characters spanning several generations that have taken on the mantle after the troubled figure became an unlikely icon, and the 58 year-old Carrey is being eyed for an older version of the villain. He wouldn’t be the real Joker, mind you, just someone else inspired by Arthur.
