Gillan is probably best known for her role on Doctor Who as Amy Pond.


Though she does also currently play one of the baddest bitches this side of Terra, appearing as Nebula in the insanely successful Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.

And will also be one of the leads in the upcoming Jumanji reboot.

Well, during a Q&A at Florida SuperCon, Gillan was asked if she could play any character in any other fandom (besides Doctor Who and GOTG) who would it be?


To which she responded, "Can I say something DC? Okay, I’m going to say something DC, and I’m going to play the Joker. Maybe a female Joker."

Legendary Pictures

Um... yes, please.


And this is not completely out of the line of possibility, as many comic fans know, keeping in mind that a female Joker is canon in the DC extended universe.

In the 2011 limited comic series Flashpoint, Martha Wayne (Bruce Wayne's mom) becomes the Joker in an alternate timeline where Bruce is killed instead of his parents and her husband/Bruce's dad becomes Batman.

Upon learning this fact at the Con, Gillan doubled down saying, "This is my calling! Somebody make a call for me and let them know I’m available."
