Avengers star Tom Hiddleston transforms into The Joker for Robert Pattinson’s The Batman in an awesome new fan edit.
The Batman is one of the most anticipated Warner Bros movies, as it will see Robert Pattinson taking on the role of the Dark Knight for the first time. Joining Pattinson in his first outing as Batman are Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler and Colin Farrell as The Penguin. One of the notable omissions from The Batman‘s rogues’ gallery is The Joker, the arch-nemesis of the Caped Crusader. While the Clown Prince of Crime isn’t expected to appear in the Pattinson film, a brand new fan edit imagines Avengers star Tom Hiddleston taking on the role that won Joaquin Phoenix an Academy Award.
Digital artist Mizuri took to Instagram to share an awesome concept design that shows Tom Hiddleston assuming the role of The Joker. Tom Hiddleston was last seen as the infamous trickster Loki in Avengers: Endgame. Considering Hiddleston is quite talented in making a fool out of others, he’d make for a perfect Joker for Robert Pattinson’s Batman trilogy. You can see Hiddleston as the iconic DC Comics villain below.

Hiddleston as Joker, Yay or Nay ? Tom Hiddleston // Loki x The Joker . Hi all! Did a fun little edit of Loki’s Endgame poster turned into The Joker! Probably won’t happen, but @twhiddleston would be an interesting Joker. Definitely excited to see him reprise his role as Loki in his own series. Enjoy ! Support my art at @SHOPMIZURI (Link in Bio)
The concept does a fine job of retaining Tom Hiddleston’s notable features, including his long hair, which he was seen sporting in Avengers: Endgame. In the image, Hiddleston effortlessly assumes the standard but still iconic look of the Joker, from the green hair to the red-smacked lips. While he’s rocking the classic purple suit, the diamonds on the Avengers star’s eyes take a cue from Joaquin Phoenix’s rendition of the Joker. Currently, there’s no indication that the Joker will be appearing in Robert Pattinson’s The Batman, but if Hiddleston is game, he’d surely make a menacing foe. If you’re missing Hiddleston’s shenanigans as the Avengers character, he’ll be returning in Loki, a Disney Plus series focusing on the trickster’s solo adventures.
What are your thoughts on this concept design of Avengers star Tom Hiddleston taking on the role of the Joker? Are you excited to see Robert Pattinson’s The Batman? Sound-off in the comments!
Full plot details on The Batman are being kept under lock and key, but we know that the film will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. Following the Caped Crusader during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector, The Batman will make use of the hero’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous live-action adaptations. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new Batman trilogy with Robert Pattinson.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on June 25, 2021.
