Fans Want MACAULAY CULKIN To Play The Joker In New Batman Trilogy
Now that Twilight star Robert Pattison's involvement in Matt Reeves' The Batman seems to be a official, fans are now having their say as to who should play Batsy's archnemesis The Joker.
All of a sudden, diehard fans of the Caped Crusader want Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin to play the iconic Batman villain after an image of him next to the Clown Prince of Crime went viral. We gotta say, he does look the part.

The film slated for a 2021 release is reported to be the first of three films Reeves will be working on and it's not going to be connected to the DCEU's continuity. It's also rumored to feature at least six villains from Batmans impressive rogues gallery including Penguin, Catwoman and Two-Face among others.
DC and Warner Bros. are also releasing a standalone Joker film topbilled by Joaquin Phoenix in October.
