Even though the character has already had enough actors portraying him.

Jamie Campbell Bower, who portrays Vecna a.k.a. Number One in 'Stranger Things' season 4, appears to have led many people thinking that he would be a perfect Joker in the DC universe.

Even though the iconic Batman rival clearly does not need yet another actor in line to portray him (currently, the role is secured by Barry Keoghan), Bower is now clearly a part of massive Joker fancast.

It seems that his compelling monologue in episode 7 of season 4 was something that sold the idea to fans. Henry Creel and Joker clearly have a lot in common in their vision of the world and humanity – which could potentially make it easier for Bower to play Batman's archrival.

"i love stranger things but i canNOT believe they went and gave vecna a joker ‘we live in a society’ speech lmaoo i think the monsters were a lot scarier when they couldn’t speak," – @yomeghan.

Some people are even disappointed that Joker is currently played by Barry Keoghan and not Bower.

"He and Barry are literally the same age. It should've been him as the Joker to Robert Pattinson's Batman." – @Realjohnperez.

Others, however, have called for less fancast ideas regarding Joker. It's almost like we have had enough versions of this character already.

"Hear me out, an actor can have a creepy, villainous performance in something and you can suggest them for a different comic book character than Joker," – @RN_Bhargava.

Vecna was inspired by a handful of iconic villains from different universes, from the 80s horrors to the Harry Potter saga. Surprisingly, Joker was not among these villains, even though Bower does seem like a good choice to portray the Clown Prince of Crime.
