ComicBook.com reports that Matt Reeves will potentially play the iconic villain, Joker in The Batman. Nothing has been confirmed as of late, but this rumor has been circulating for months.
Reeves is planning for his Joker “to appear in the second and third movies as one of the films’ multiple villains.” The Joker will be referenced in the first installment, 2021’s The Batman, and that casting for the role has not yet started.
As for the plot, nothing has surfaced, but sources say the movie will explore the Dark Knight’s younger years with Reeves. The flick will be based on the iconic comic book story called “Year One” by Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli, which was published in 1987.
