Tommy Wiseau Wants to Play the Joker in Scorsese Produced DC Movie

Tommy Wiseau Wants to Play the Joker in Scorsese Produced DC Movie

Tommy Wiseau thinks that he would be a better Joker than Joaquin Phoenix and has reached out to director Todd Phillips about the role. Leonardo DiCaprio was rumored to play the Clown Prince of Crime in the new Joker Origin Movie, being produced by Martin Scorsese, after it was revealed that he met with Phillips 4 times to talk about the role. But new report suggests that Joaquin Phoenix is now the frontrunner for the new Joker movie. But would The Room‘s Tommy Wiseau be a better choice than Phoenix and DiCaprio?

Tommy Wiseau thinks he’s the right actor to portray the Joker in Martin Scorsese and Todd Phillips’ new origin story and he might be right. Late last week, Wiseau hit up Phillips on social media when it was announced that Joaquin Phoenix is the frontrunner to play the character. Phoenix is an Academy Award nominated actor and excitement began to spread amongst DC fans with the idea of the actor taking on the role. Fan art was promptly drawn up, which stoked the fire even more. However, Tommy Wiseau thinks he can do a better job.

The Room is considered to be the Citizen Kane of horrible movies, but Tommy Wiseau’s role is perfectly unhinged and he could make a fine Joker in the new origin movie. The DCEU is looking to shake things up with a new DC Films banner that will make the standalone movie and Wiseau could be just the man to go in and turn things around after the failure of Justice League. Now all we need is BossLogic to whip up some artwork really quick to see what Tommy Wiseau would look like as the Joker.

All kidding aside, Tommy Wiseau will definitely not be playing the Joker in Todd Phillips’ upcoming origin movie. But, it would be equally interesting to see Wiseau tackle the movie on his own, like he did with The Room. Maybe that’s the direction that the actor should take since it could be a few years before we end up seeing this new Joker origin movie put out by Warner Bros. Tommy Wiseau could make his own version, with his own money, and probably even get a bunch of A-list cameos, thanks to James Franco’s The Disaster Artist.

Although Tommy Wiseau won’t get to play the Joker in the Todd Phillips’ upcoming movie, he may end up getting a cameo of some sort. Maybe he can play a henchman or a football player in a role without dialogue. For now, Joaquin Phoenix is the frontrunner to play the Joker in an origin story that will reportedly take place in the 1980s and be the first movie to be released under the new DC Films banner. Let’s hope that Tommy Wiseau is included in some way when production starts. You can check out the tweet that started it all below, courtesy of Tommy Wiseau’s Twitter account.

Are John Cena and Nikki Bella Back Together?

Just over a month ago we revealed that WWE Superstars John Cena and Nikki Bella broke up ( you can click here to find out why Nikki Bella broke up with John Cena.)

Since their break-up both John Cena and Nikki Bella have been on a media frenzy, one for her reality TV show, and the other for his blockbuster movies.

John Cena has made it clear in these interviews, that he will stop at nothing to win Nikki Bella back, and it looks like it actually worked.

John Cena and Nikki Bella are finally back on the road to reconciliation!

A source told us that “they’re basically back together.”

“They both got a wake-up call once they canceled the wedding, and they both realized they could fix what was broken,” the source revealed.

“They never stopped talking,” a source told People Magazine. “Other than the actual wedding weekend, when they took some space, they have been talking.”

John had made it clear on NBC’s “Today” show that he wanted to have a family with Nikki and still wanted to marry her. If you watch Total Divas or Total Bella’s than you already know that this is exactly what Nikki wanted to hear.

“He has poured his heart out to her, and she was more than ready to take him back once she heard what she needed to hear,” the source from People Magazine added. “He’s been saying and doing all the right things.”

As seen below, TMZ spotted the couple in San Diego over the weekend, and it looks like we may see the power couple together again real soon for good!

Andy Serkis’ ‘Mowgli’ Trailer: A Darker Look At ‘The Jungle Book’

Andy Serkis’ ‘Mowgli’ Trailer: A Darker Look At ‘The Jungle Book’

With this morning’s trailer debut of Andy Serkis’ Mowgli, we now have a trailer for every major Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc. release for 2018 except for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born and James Wan’s Aquaman. I’m guessing we’ll get a Star Is Born trailer (the film opted to forgo Cannes in favor of the more Oscar-friendly Fall festival circuit) attached to Ocean’s 8 in early June. That Aquaman trailer will drop, I dunno, sometime next month with Incredibles 2 or Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom or with July’s Ant-Man and the Wasp just before SDCC?

Either way, this darker, PG-13 variation on Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is going to have to justify itself 2.5 years after Disney beat them to the punch with a pretty acclaimed and $996 million-grossing version of the iconic story.  Yes, this one is presumably more faithful to the original book than the Disney toon, the 1994 Stephen Sommers actioner or Jon Favreau’s animated/live-action hybrid from 2016. But at the end of the day, it’s still another live-action/animated action drama set in the same general world and stemming from the same source material.

It’ll be an uphill battle, even if this does turn out to be essentially a Jungle Book movie with the tone, mood and flavoring of Matt Reeves’ recent Planet of the Apes sequels. To be fair, this looks pretty spectacular from a purely visual point-of-view. And the animal cast, including Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Eddie Marsan and Naomie Harris among others, is pretty impressive if not quite as conventionally star-studded as Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Walken and Idris Elba. If not for the fact that we just had a variation on this movie from a different studio two years ago, this one would probably be looked at as a much bigger deal.

But this isn’t 1998 where audiences necessarily want two loose copies of the same movie in a short period of time. Heck, even in 2013 there was only room for one “Die Hard in the White House” movie, as the underrated but overbudgeted White House Down fell to the cheaper and nastier Olympus Has Fallen. Of course, a 2.5-year difference is different than a six-month (or less) span between movies. So will audiences feel that enough time has passed in between Jungle Book movies, even if this one does look pretty neat and does feel closer in spirit to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes than Walt Disney’s (occasionally somber and arthouse-ish) Jungle Book adaptation?
