Fans Ask Willem Dafoe To Be The New Joker After ‘The Batman’

Released in Spain on January 10, The lighthouse left many spectators scratching their heads in pure confusion. The second film by Robert Eggers (The Witch) is a strange author piece in which Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe unleash an intense interpretive duel halfway between Harold Pinter and Lovecraft. But if some of us left the cinema wondering what the hell we had seen, others already fantasized about seeing their two protagonists reunited in another type of movie.

Pictures / DC Comics) More Indeed, the fact that Pattinson is going to play the new Dark Knight in The Batman (the solo film of the DC hero directed by Matt Reeves and will premiere on the 25th of June 2021) has triggered the imagination of many fans – especially those who remember how ideal Dafoe was as the evil Green Goblin in that Spider-Man of 2001. In short, the question is already running through the networks: Should Willem Dafoe be the Joker in the hypothetical sequels of The Batman? The truth is that the 64-year-old actor himself recalled that this is not the first time this idea arises. In fact, the scriptwriter of that 1989 Batman, Sam Hamm, would have seen Dafoe as an ideal candidate to embody Prince Clown of Crime that Jack Nicholson would end up doing: “Hamm said something like that I would be physically perfect for the role, although they never offered it to me, ”recalls the actor – who, despite being a very reputable actor, has never had“ star-power ”by Nicholson, although we would love for an actor of the likes of Dafoe to find his fifth Oscar nomination with a paper that already earned two Academy Awards to the late Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix, it is highly unlikely that the Joker appears in this first installment of The Batman – since his villains are already confirmed and are Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), The Penguin (Colin Farrell), Enigma / Riddler (Paul Dano) and Carmine Falcone (John Turturro). In addition, it remains to be seen how this fictional universe will be related to that of the Joker that Phoenix will interpret (if they have any link). And finally, let’s not forget that Pattinson is 33 years old, so he is separated from Dafoe for no less than three decades (they could be father and son, in fact). But none of this has prevented fans from unleashing their imagination and propose Dafoe as Joker – even in a hypothetical sequel to The Batman. After all, dreaming is free… “Willem Dafoe as Joker, in a post-credits scene of The Batman. Just imagine it. ” Have you seen the Lighthouse with Dafoe and Pattinson? That movie is bonkers.
