‘Seinfeld’ Star Jason Alexander Would Like To Play Batman Villain Egghead

Seinfeld star Jason Alexander expresses interest in playing the Batman villain Egghead in a standalone film.

Jason Alexander took to his Twitter to comment on the success of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker, which he has not seen yet. He however acknowledges that it has become a massive hit and sees it as an opportunity for Warner Bros. and DC Films to experiment with more films centered on Batman’s villains. Jason Alexander then states that he would be the best choice to play Egghead:

Jason Alexander goes on to tweet that many fans see him as a better fit for the Penguin rather than Egghead, much to his surprise:

Egghead was a villain that was created for the 1960’s Batman television series starring Adam West as the Caped Crusader. The role of Egghead was originated by horror movie icon Vincent Price. Egghead’s full name is Edgar Heed and boasts genius intelligence and is famous for his egg-related crimes and weapons as well as his constant use of egg-related puns.

Given Warner Bros. and DC Films’ plans for their upcoming films, if Egghead were to appear on the big screen, it would likely be in an upcoming Batman film with Robert Pattinson. It seems extremely unlikely that we will see a standalone Egghead movie similar to Joker. 

But if Egghead were to appear on the big screen, would you like to see Seinfeld‘s Jason Alexander in the role? Do you think his previous work on Seinfeld as George Costanza among other comedic performances gives fans a sense at how he would portray Egghead? Sound off in the comments below.

Meanwhile, Matt Reeves’ The Batman will bring audiences back to Gotham City in an updated take on the Caped Crusader. Robert Pattinson was cast to play Bruce Wayne/Batman earlier this year, and actors Jeffrey Wright and Jonah Hill are both in negotiations to join the cast. The film is said to feature Batman’s Rogues’ Gallery of villains including The Riddler, Penguin, Catwoman and more. Perhaps there is some room for Egghead and Jason Alexander can clear his schedule to bring him to life as well.

The Batman hits theaters on June 25, 2021.
