William Defoe is the potential Joker candidate in the Batman series. What can the fans expect? What are the recent updates? Here’s everything we know!
Can William Defoe be the new Joker?
The fans want Robert Pattinson and Willem Defoe to reunite as Batman and the Joker in Batman. For quite some time, Dafoe’s name often comes up with DC fans, discussing dream options for the Joker, and he’s been portrayed in the role multiple times with fan art. Now that Pattinson will be playing the next Batman, however, Dafoe’s idea of playing the next Joker is gaining traction once again, as fans think that the Lighthouse reunion makes the casting more perfect. Interestingly, Willem Defoe was being considered to play the Joker at least once before.
According to Dafoe, Batman 89 screenwriter Sam Hamm told him that his name was coming up as a possible option because he had the right eye for it. Daff revealed in an interview earlier this month. Leave no stone unturned to see Willem Dafoe as the Joker in The Batman, but Pattinson’s Batman will still have his hands full in the film.
