When it was announced that Robert Pattinson aka the man of our dreams was to be the next Batman, the world was in splits.
Some were pleasantly taken aback others not much so. And with the rumours that Johnny Depp might be the next Joker in Matt Reeves’ The Batman set to premiere in 2021, there was a whole new world of conversations and discussions.
- What Does The Next Batman Look Like?
- What Will The Movie Focus On?
- Johnny Depp As The Next Joker and All that Promise Holds!
Fans were quick to jump the gun on the opportunity and present the world with beautiful pieces of artwork of what Depp as The Joker would look like. And we’re not complaining.
What Does The Next Batman Look Like?
Things are looking interesting for this Batman. After it was announced that Robert Pattinson will be taking on the role for Batman in the upcoming Matt Reeves’ directorial venture there was a lot of buzz among the fans. Recently, Pattinson gave a rather astounding performance in the movie Lighthouse and put anyone with his acting skills doubt to a swift rest.
With Pattinson as Batman and Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman- the duo are all ready to embark on the journey of being DC’s popular superheroes. Among the star cast, Collin Farrell will be seen joining as the Penguin, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon and of course if the rumours are to be believed then Johnny Depp as The Joker. (Oh My God!)
What Will The Movie Focus On?
This question is rather being asked the most while being answered to none. The plotline of the movie is very much under wraps and hidden from the world. But we do know that the story will focus on a younger version of Bruce Wayne and features a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that include Catwoman, The Penguin and The Riddler.
The Matt Reeves Film would follow The Dark Knight in his early years as Gotham’s Protector and will make the use of Batman’s detective skills to a much larger extent than the other DC films so far. This movie will apparently mark the beginning of a Trilogy starring Robert Pattinson. (one must dream!)
The film is set to hit the theaters on June 25, 2021.
Johnny Depp As The Next Joker and All that Promise Holds!
At this point, anyone who has followed the DC saga of Batman and the Joker on-screen would agree that getting to play The Joker is nothing short of an honour. The likes of late Heath Ledger (who won an Oscar for it posthumously), Jack Nicholson, Joaquin Phoenix (also an Oscar) have all played The Clown Prince Of Crime and done a rather remarkable job too.
While all these actors have been known for playing The Joker, Depp has had a diverse acting career playing a number of memorable characters. Known for playing Edward Scissor Hands, Captain Jack Sparrow and Sweeney Todd. But Depp has so far in his very long career not appeared in a single superhero movie. And after the rumours swirled fans have imagined what twist would Depp bring to his character and what he would look like.
Some imagined a darker without the signature smile version while some expect him to have an over the top ridiculous feel to him. While this Batman might not have Depp playing the villain one can still expect him to appear in any of the next films in what is planned to be a trilogy.
Till then, let the artwork and our hopes shine and reach the Warner Brothers!
