Barry Keoghan on The Return of The Joker


See what I did there with the title?  Anyway

Via a recent interview on the HAPPY, SAD, CONFUSED podcast, actor Barry Keoghan revealed to host Josh Horowitz the obvious: He’d love to play The Joker again in a future sequel to THE BATMAN.  In fact, the dude’s done a ton of research on The Clown Prince of Crime just in case he gets the call.  Here’s what he had to say when asked if he’d like to return to Matt Reeves’ Gotham…

Definitely. Definitely. Definitely, because I’ve got a few other things I’d love to bring. Actually, I have this little half-Moleskin book I’ve written a lot in already and so yeah, I want to show people what that is.

Obviously, I’d love another crack. I’ve got a ton of back work done on him. If an opportunity does arise but, you know, they make the call, and I’ve got to respect that.

Keoghan’s Joker appeared in THE BATMAN in a brief scene set in Arkham Asylum with Paul Dano’s The Ridder at the end of the film.  Keoghan also filmed another scene with Robert Pattinson’s Batman also set in Arkham that didn’t make the final cut of the film.  Thankfully, Reeves loved the scene so much, he and Warner Bros. released it not long after the film’s release last year.

If I were a betting man, I’d wager a month’s pay — in MONOPOLY money, as always — that we’ll see Keoghan’s Joker again.  CLICK HERE or on any of the other links provided for the full interview. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
