The connection between Chaplin and the ‘Joker’
Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker exceeded all assumptions and provided the public with a very compelling look at the iconic DC character. Nonetheless, it currently seems that another actor could bring the Clown Crime Prince back to life and that he is someone who has already had some cinematic experience in this of villains within some universe …
After photos of the shooting, set have been released and there have been images to the Batsuit of the long-awaited movie ‘The Batman’, fans from all over the world have speculated on when the Dark Knight’s archenemy would arrive. In fact, one of the most powerful unknowns in everyone’s mind is who will play the new Joker who will face Robert Pattinson’s, Bruce Wayne.
Many people have already announced that they believe that Willem Dafoe would be a solid choice for the character, and although they are certainly right in this matter, the study could be going in a different direction. As the We Got This covered website points out, actor Ben Barnes has been in talks to play Prince Clown of Crime.
It is said that the actor of ‘The Punisher’, in charge of giving life to the villain Jigsaw in the series, is a name that interests the studio, but at this time, it cannot be confirmed if it is for the Batman trilogy or if it is for the Joker within the ‘Jokerverse’ with which Todd Phillips will continue working.
However, whatever it is, Barnes would face an important challenge. Do not forget that two of the last actors to give life to the antagonist of Batman have won the Oscar for his work.
At least Barnes skills to play bad humor and has shown in the Netflix series. Will you reach an agreement with Warner Bros.? For now, wait.
