Word is making the Internet rounds that Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of Zack Snyder‘s Justice League. While one might expect Dafoe to continue his superhero movie villainous ways, the character he’s been cast for is one of the good guys and will appear in both parts of the Justice League movies. Which character and other assorted details are being held under wraps for the moment, which means one thing. Hundreds if not thousands of speculation posts on Defoe’s character. Let’s get started shall we?
Justice League Part One started production last week and will feature the return of Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as the Flash, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. Which role might Dafoe take on and will it even be a superhero? He could just be a good guy, much like J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
If he was playing a superhero, the number one choice would have to be Martian Manhunter. Dafoe would crush that role, and there are other heroes that he could play, but Martian Manhunter makes the most sense. Dafoe could show up in one or two of the other movies, to help develop and introduce the character. We won’t know until more information makes its way to the Internet. As that information becomes available, we’ll bring it to you here.
Justice League Part One hits theaters November 17th, 2017.
