Once again, speculation mounts that Affleck will hang up the cowl after 'Justice League,' despite continued denials from Warner Bros/DC.
The DC Extended Universe is expanding in a slightly unexpected direction with the news that an origin movie is in the works for The Joker, arch-nemesis of Batman and arguably just as iconic a figure in the DC pantheon. However, it is already confirmed that director Todd Phillips’ as yet untitled film will not star Jared Leto (whose take on the character in 2016’s ‘Suicide Squad’ proved divisive), and will instead recast with a younger actor to portray the Clown Prince of Crime in his earliest days. The big question is, who should play the young Joker in this DCEU prequel? Here are our top ten suggestions.

Warner Bros. and DC are in the early stages of another Batman Universe spinoff movie, this one telling the origin story of the Caped Crusader's archnemesis.
Ben Affleck really, truly loves playing Batman — a point the star took great pains to make on Saturday during Warner Bros.’ Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
Prepare those cockles for a thorough warming – last night saw the Bat Signal projected onto Los Angeles City Hall in tribute to the late Adam West.
The original Batman, Adam West, will be given a most fitting tribute tonight in Los Angeles, as the bat signal is illuminated one last time.
Report states that the late actor had finished recording his role for upcoming movie 'Batman Vs. Two-Face.'
Adam West, the actor who brought deadpan comedy and a hero’s jutting jaw to the title character of TV’s landmark ’60s superhero series Batman , died yesterday at the age of 88. A spokesperson for the family said West died of leukemia, surrounded by family. A cultural phenomenon from the moment it debuted on January 12, 1966 on ABC, Batman was a twice-weekly treat for children – with its comic book-style POW!s and BAM!s highlighting the climactic fight scenes – and, with…
As well as giving us our first proper look at the team in action (including a curiously Iron Man-esque Cyborg, played by Ray Fisher), this trailer also gives us our first brief glimpses of some other new characters, including Amber Heard as Mera, and JK Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. There’s also a quick glimpse of Amy Adams as Lois Lane – although, as necessitated by the ending of ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ one rather notable absentee is Henry Cavill as Superman.
In preparation for the ‘Justice League’ trailer, a new snap of Ben Affleck’s Batsuit for the DC superhero bonanza has been revealed. And it all looks a bit less brooding, and a bit more chirpy than the hulking outfit he was given for ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’. Here it is in its full glory… And compare it to the rather more sober garms he wore in BvS… This ‘tactical batsuit’, as it’s being dubbed, is more trim, his bat ears look a bit smaller, and with its grey bat logo, generally feels a little brighter than past iterations. ...
It’s official – Nightwing is getting a solo film. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the long-time Batman sidekick Dick Grayson will star in his very own DC superhero flick… with ‘Lego batman Movie’ director at the helm. “Warner Bros. is plotting a new DC superhero film based on the Batman-centric character Nightwing,” they revealed.
Yahoo Movies has the exclusive first look at DC Collectibles’ upcoming line of premium, screen-accurate 12-inch statues based on the Justice League lineup. The meticulously detailed poly-resin sculpts were designed in coordination with Warner Bros. and present our best look yet at the costumed characters who make up DC’s premier hero team: Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s Flash, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. Each piece, mounted on a Justice League stand, will retail for $150, be limited to a run of 5,000 copies and will be available timed to the film’s Nov. 17 opening.
One triumph of The Lego Batman Movie is its ability to simultaneously satirize and celebrate the legacy of the Dark Knight, a rich history spanning eight decades of comic books, TV shows, and, especially, films. From Will Arnett’s Christian Bale-inspired gravelly growl to callbacks to the 1940s serial, The Lego Batman Movie is overstuffed with cinematic references and inside jokes. The pilot immediately calls out the Joker, pointing out how his previous big-screen endeavors were thwarted by the Caped Crusaders, alluding to both 2008’s The Dark Knight and 1989’s Batman.
Part parody, part paean, The Lego Batman Movie lovingly plumbs the depths of the Dark Knight’s rogues gallery to reward long-time Bat lovers — and perhaps confound casual fans. The Clown Prince of Crime has recruited a who’s-who of fellow felons, among them such major big-screen miscreants as Riddler, Catwoman, Penguin, Bane, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Mr. Freeze, and Poison Ivy, as well as Suicide Squaddies like Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, and Captain Boomerang. Yes, Condiment King is real.
