  1. Johnny cash he played as I love he’s songs. Plus the movie walk the line is the year where my mother was born I believe.

  2. People are doubting him as a Joker but I think all his stuff about him getting nervous each time and anxious, is what could make him a brilliant joker. We’ll see!

  3. I don’t think there’s a way anyone can method act Joker, unless they do some seriously horrible stuff. The only way I thi k Joaquin could do it is by learning of the material this Batman movie will be based off of, and by watching the works of Mark Hamill and Heath Ledger.
