With the production of Matt Reeves’s Batman underway despite Corona’s outburst, fans are speculating more and more that Johnny Depp will be seen as playing the Joker in this movie.
This article covers the words from Kevin Smith regarding these fan comments.
Kevin Smith’s take on this :
Kevin Smith who co-hosts the Fatman Beyond podcast has said that has anyone heard of is there a joker in Matt Reeves movie. With Oscars flourishing for this iconic role as it is seen for Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix he speculated this Batman role is an Oscar bait. Who would not want to act like the joker?
Of all the actors outside there, the person who suits the most for joker other than Joaquin Pheonix is Johnny Depp. He does not from where the rumor of him playing the joker has come up.
But it will be a lot of fun seeing him reprising the role. We have seen Johnny Depp playing many roles. Almost every movie of his will be a completely different and challenging one.
So for this new challenge as Joker would be worth even for him and even fans to see him reprising that role. So even Kevin Smith felt pretty exciting and fun to see Johnny Depp playing the Joker.
