And Willem Dafoe? Matt Reeves, director of the film, confirmed that he would have the Joker as one of his villains’ expectations for the new Batman movie are very high. The details of what will be the delivery of the film starring Robert Pattinson are being revealed little by little and everything indicates that Matt Reeves intends to work on a trilogy of the character.
Well, so far it had been confirmed that the film would feature several of the classic villains of Gothic City, including Gatubela, Penguin and Riddler. But what caused a real stir was when they announced that the Joker would also join the story.
We know that many expected Joaquin Phoenix to return to the role of the Oscar for best actor, but the truth is that his film has no relationship with that of Matt Reeves, so obviously it will not be part. Who does seem to be close to playing the popular villain is Ben Barnes, who is remembered for roles such as Prince Caspian in The Chronicles of Narnia or as Dorian, in The Portrait of Dorian Gray.
According to the, We Got This Covered portal, the star has been in talks with the production to become the Joker of the next feature film. If the news is confirmed, I would be sharing credits with Zöe Kravitz, Paul Dano, and Collin Farrell. A whole generation of young characters that will begin this new trilogy of the ‘Dark Knight’.
This information has not yet been confirmed, but it is considered that Ben Barnes may be a good choice for the role and join the cast soon. At the moment it remains to be pending of the next announcements that are made.
