Many well-known DC characters will appear in Matt Reeves ’work, and some fans would also very much like to see the Batman’s ancestral enemy in interpreting a truly appropriate character.

Although Joaquin Phoenix played an Oscar-winning role as Joker, the chances of Todd Phillips ’film starring in the DC film universe are very slim. Plus, chances are Jared Leto won’t put on the clown jersey again, so for now, it’s questionable who will be able to shape the iconic villain in the future. Yet it is one of the most complex characters, far beyond the simple “crazy killing machine” stereotype, it has already got an incredibly deep background story and personality in comics, and of course several actors have produced memorable plays in several cinema adaptations. though, rather Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger really put a lot into the role).

In connection with the next film, the name of a well-known actor has already emerged, though not officially, of course, only among fans. Many people believe that Willem Dafoe would be a selective choice for the role of Joker in The Batman. This isn’t the first time Dafoe’s name has been raised in connection with the role, and now this topic has probably come up again because the actor played great together with The Lighthouse in Robert Pattinson, who won’t be the next filmmaker by the way, Batman. And let’s not forget that Dafoe is an incredibly versatile actor who, on top of that, excels in extreme, crazy roles.

Of course, it’s a question of whether another evil character is needed at all in The Batman. Gotham’s justice will already have enough enemies in the film, as Penguin, played by Colin Farrell, will appear, we will meet Rébus played by Paul Dano, and even the Catwoman, who will be shaped by Zoë Kravitz, will be honored. So the appearance of a Joker might have been a bit much, but there are those who say that precisely because of the aforementioned opponent parade, a kind of Anti-Batman League is unthinkable with the biggest villains.

Officially, however, it is highly questionable who will be the next Joker in the DC film universe (when the idea for Joker 2 came up), so for now, the guesswork remains. Do you think the new Batman line would need a new Joker character as well?
