3 Johnny Depp Johnny Depp John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II is an American actor, producer, and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actor. His role in a movie is often rather big. His character is often on the "loopy side" and his character being in a darker state of mind, etc.

Yes. - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

He sucked at being the mad hatter so he would suck as the joker simple

Yes please - Martinglez

4 Edward Norton Edward Norton Edward Harrison Norton is an American actor, filmmaker and activist. He has been nominated for three Academy Awards for his work in the films Primal Fear, American History X and Birdman.

No. - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

Norton would make an amazing joker.

Amazing in Primal Fear

5 Tom Hiddleston Tom Hiddleston Thomas William Hiddleston is an English actor. He is best known for his role as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in Thor, The Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World.

Yes. - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

That sinister smile and the looks. He'll make a great Joker.

Don't do this. - RalphBob

6 Christoph Waltz Christoph Waltz Christoph Waltz is an Austrian-German actor that has won 2 Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor for his collaborations with director Quentin Tarantino in Inglourious Basterds and Django Unchained.

No. - AngelOfTheSkyStarsMoon

He has played that bone chilling voice that every psychopath should have including the joker. He also has played insane violent people I the past so he does have the experience to play the part. He could also portray a old brutal but still psychotic joker similar too the one in the dark knight returns.

His Bond villain was well portrayed. - PetSounds

Possibly - BeatlesFan1964

Maybe, but I'm biased because Kevin Spacey is rad - BeatlesFan1964

I'd love to see what he'd do with it - Billyv

I know that he has already played the Valeska twins on Gotham, but I would love to see him on the big screen as a confirmed, official Joker. Plus, we didn't get to see nearly enough of his Jokers on Gotham, so it would be a win for everyone if he got to actually play the Joker in a movie.
