The Batman is getting a lot of attention lately with videos and pictures of Robert Pattinson as the Dark Knight and his Batmobile revealed. And now Johnny Depp is reportedly in talks to play the iconic villain Joker in the movie too!
The 56-year-old actor is reportedly being eyed to play the Batman’s arch-nemesis, Joker along with the list of other villains that are set to appear in the upcoming movie directed by Matt Reeves.
Johnny Depp has been a fan-favourite cast to play the Joker for a while now and even the ultimate Batman authority Kevin Smith agrees that he’ll be a great Joker!
"Now this is the first anyone's even heard about there being a possibility of a Joker in The Batman movie, on the heels of the Joker which won Oscars and made over a billion dollars and Joaquin just locked that part down,” Kevin said in his podcast.
“Of all the actors out there that could possibly take a roll of the dice on The Joker, Johnny Depp is actually kind of perfect,” he added. "You got to admit he'd be fun man, like of all the parts he's played he's kind of perfect for a take on The Joker."
The latest versions of Joker were played by Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix and both characters were more of a sociopathic version of the character, while Johnny Depp is reportedly playing a “campy” version instead.
Many fans agree that Johnny will play a great Joker and there are already fan arts circulating online showing how he’ll look like as the villain!
The actor was recently also rumoured to return as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of The Caribbean 6.
