Johnny Depp transforms into The Joker for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman in a cool concept design that depicts the Fantastic Beasts star as the next live-action Clown Prince of Crime.
Although Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne already has his hands full with a number of villains appearing in The Batman, this awesome artwork shows off what the Joker could look like in the new Gotham timeline created by director Matt Reeves. The artwork of Johnny Depp as The Joker aims to match the aesthetic and style of Robert Pattinson’s The Batman. It certainly seems appropriate compared to what we’ve seen so far from set photos and the first look at Robert Pattinson suited up as Batman.
The artwork of Johnny Depp as The Joker comes from popular digital artist BossLogic and depicts the star with the villain’s iconic green hair, though he doesn’t have an over-the-top red smile like other popular versions of the DC Comics icon. A second image shows Johnny Depp wearing a green shirt and purple trousers while wielding a bloody crowbar. The crowbar in particular instantly reminds us of the Joker beating Jason Todd before leaving him to die in an explosion, while the black hat might remind some fans of the Joker’s look from The Killing Joke.

Full plot details on Robert Pattinson’s The Batman are currently under wraps, but we know that the film will revolve around a younger version of Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. The Matt Reeves film will follow the Dark Knight during his early years as Gotham City’s protector and will make use of the hero’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC films. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy featuring Robert Pattinson as Batman.
