New artwork inspired by Robert Pattinson’s The Batman imagines Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin as the next Joker.
Matt Reeves’ The Batman is expected to offer fans a fresh take on the Dark Knight and feature several members of the titular hero’s rogues’ gallery. While it doesn’t look like Batman’s greatest enemy the Joker will appear in the highly-anticipated film, many fans are already suggesting actors for the role and Macaulay Culkin is a popular choice to go up against Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne.
In fact, digital artist “spdrmnkyxxiii” has created an awesome concept design that shows off what Macaulay Culkin could look like as the Joker. In the caption included with the artwork, the artist notes that Macaulay Culkin could potentially be a great Joker opposite Robert Pattinson’s Batman.

Full plot details on The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. Following the Caped Crusader during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector, The Batman will make use of the hero’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous live-action adaptations. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin. The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on October 1, 2021.
