While Joaquin Phoenix is the latest actor to step into the Joker role, new art imagines Spider-Man and Aquaman star Willem Dafoe as the clown prince of crime.
Dafoe is best known for his villainous turn as Norman Osborn in Sam Rami’s Spider-Man trilogy and the actor will make his return to the genre next month as Vulko in Aquaman. Despite Defoe already portraying an iconic supervillain, many have fan cast the actor as the Joker over the years. Dafoe revealed that producer Sam Hamm suggested him for the role of the Joker in Batman due to his physical appearance. Of course, the role would later go to Jack Nicholson but that hasn’t stopped fans from wanting Dafoe as Batman’s greatest rogue. New art from Instagram user skull101ify depicts Defoe as the clown prince of crime, showing an uncanny resemblance to the comic book character:
