Batman / Batman Joker

Was Joker in the New Batman?

The Joker has been one of the most iconic villains in the Batman franchise, and fans have been eagerly waiting to see him appear in any new Batman movies. With the release of the new Batman trailer, rumors have been swirling about whether or not the Joker will make an appearance in this upcoming movie.

So, was Joker in the new Batman? Let’s take a closer look.

What we know so far

The trailer for The Batman was released on August 22nd, 2020, and it gave us a glimpse into what we can expect from this new movie. The trailer features Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zoe Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin, and Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/The Riddler.

No signs of Joker

Unfortunately for fans hoping to see the Joker in this new movie, there were no signs of him in the trailer. The focus seemed to be on these other villains that Batman would be facing off against.

A new take on Gotham

One interesting thing to note is that this movie seems to be taking a darker and grittier approach to Gotham City than previous adaptations. Director Matt Reeves has said that he wants to explore “the corruption in Gotham” and “the idea of being corrupted” through his version of Batman.

  • This could mean that we might not see a traditional version of the Joker.
  • Instead, we could see a more grounded and realistic take on the character.

What’s next?

While we didn’t get any hints about the Joker’s appearance in The Batman from the trailer, that doesn’t necessarily mean he won’t appear at all. It’s possible that Warner Bros. is keeping his involvement under wraps to build up anticipation for the movie’s release.

Other upcoming DC projects

If you’re a fan of the Joker, there are other upcoming DC projects that will feature the character. One of these is The Suicide Squad, which is set to be released in 2021. The Joker will also be featured in the new video game, Gotham Knights.


So, was Joker in the new Batman? Based on what we’ve seen so far, it doesn’t look like he will be a major player in this particular movie.

However, with the darker and grittier take on Gotham City that this movie promises to bring, there’s always a chance that we could see a new version of the character down the line. Until then, fans will just have to wait and see what surprises The Batman has in store for us when it’s released in 2021.
