Batman / Batman Joker

Will the Joker Be in the New Batman Movie?

The Joker is undoubtedly one of the most iconic villains in the comic book world, particularly in the Batman universe. Fans have been eagerly anticipating news about whether or not he will appear in the upcoming Batman movie starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.

So, will we see the Clown Prince of Crime on the big screen once again? Let’s explore.

What We Know So Far

Firstly, it’s essential to note that director Matt Reeves has been keeping a tight lid on any plot details for his upcoming movie. However, a few things are confirmed. The film’s trailer shows us that Pattinson’s Batman will be facing off against a host of villains, including Catwoman (played by Zoe Kravitz), Penguin (Colin Farrell), and Riddler (Paul Dano).

The Possibility of Joker Appearance

While there has been no official confirmation regarding Joker’s inclusion in the film, some rumors suggest that we might see him make an appearance. These rumors started when it was announced that actor Johnny Depp was in talks to play The Joker. However, these rumors were put to rest when it was announced that Colin Farrell would be playing Penguin instead.

The Absence of Joker

It’s also worth noting that some sources have claimed that The Joker will not feature in this movie at all. One reason for this could be because Joaquin Phoenix recently won an Oscar for his portrayal of The Joker in 2019’s standalone film. It would be challenging for any other actor to follow in his footsteps and deliver a performance that lives up to expectations.


In conclusion, while there are no concrete details about whether or not The Joker will appear in the new Batman movie, fans can continue to speculate and hope for his return. Whether he shows up or not, we can expect a thrilling and action-packed film that will do justice to the Dark Knight and his rogues’ gallery.
