    Default Michael Keaton considered for Joker role

    Original movie BATMAN MICHAEL KEATON is being considered for a return to the franchise - as THE JOKER.

    The movie star is in negotiations for the role, which JACK NICHOLSON played opposite him in the first Batman film, according to the Dark Horizons website.

    PAUL BETTANY and LACHY HULME have previously been mentioned as front-runners for The Joker role.

    Sorry, to me he'll always be Beetlejuice. Thought he sucked in Batman.

    The Joker needs to be an absolute psycho with no value to life.

    Jack was OK but not quite the right menace to him.

    Given the track record of actors used in the first film I would hope for a better choice for Bats's arch-nemesis.

    I don't care who plays the Joker as long as my honey bunny Christian Bale is the Batman.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    There is something so sexy about Michael Keaton....well, maybe not now, but like 10 yrs ago he was fine. I'd still do him...
    Jack will always be The Joker. He owned that role.

    Thank goodness for opinion. I thought he was great as Batman. Michael Keaton is extremely versatile. He will always be much more than Beetlejuice. Have you seen Clean & Sober? No Beetlejuice there, my friend.

    I THINK MICHAEL KEATON WILL BE A BETTER JOKER THAN JACK NICHOLSON. As much as I love Jack, he's in danger of becoming overrated. He kicks ass in dramatic roles, but in comedies, all I see is Jack being Jack. It's still entertaining, tho.

    I think Keaton could do a great job as the joker.. he can switch from normal to absolute fucking psycho in an instant, and can really portray flipping off the handle
