A scarily detailed custom figure reveals Barry Keoghan’s scarred Joker, who was recently revealed in a deleted scene from The Batman.
While The Batman featured a tease of Barry Keoghan’s Joker in its closing moments, when the villain can be heard talking to Paul Dano’s Riddler across their neighboring cells in Arkham Asylum, a deleted scene released online revealed the classic villain’s heavily scarred redesign. The scene saw Robert Pattinson’s Batman visiting his nemesis in Arkham to seek his help in profiling the Riddler. In this iteration, the Joker appears to be a burns victim, played with truly terrifying malice by the Eternals actor.
While fans will have to wait for a potential sequel – or perhaps one of The Batman‘s spin-off shows on HBO Max – to learn more about Barry Keoghan’s version of the Joker, Por Toys Studio have revealed their scarily detailed recreation of the character as a custom figure. Check out the first look at the new Joker figure below:
Two spin-off series based on The Batman are currently in development at HBO Max – one focusing on Colin Farrell’s Penguin and the other focusin on Arkham Asylum. A third series, focusing on Gotham City PD, is on hold indefinitely.
Here is the synopsis for The Batman:
Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City. With only a few trusted allies — Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright) — amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.
When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano). As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero and Bruce Wayne, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, Colin Farrell as the Penguin, and Barry Keoghan as The Joker.
