Via an interview with E TALK, Barry Keoghan was asked if The Joker (which he played in a THE BATMAN cameo) would show up in PART II. Here’s his answer…

I can’t really say anything about that. It would be exciting, wouldn’t it? To see the Joker come to life again. My smile says all, you know what I mean?

If I had to bet, I’d say it’s very, Very, VERY likely that we see more of BK as The Joker in THE BATMAN sequel.  In fact, I’m on record saying that these core supporting Bat-characters from the first film will be seen throughout THE BATMAN SAGA: Selina, Oz, and Edward Nashton, along with Gordon, Alfred, and Bruce Wayne, of course.  And let’s throw Ofc. Martinez into that mix because, well, he better be!

So far, there haven’t been any casting announcements — though I figure they will start soon after the first of the year.  Also, PART II was supposed to start filming around March of next year (2024), but I’m hearing it might get pushed to and commence around Summertime/the middle of the year.  Stay tuned because things are about to get really busy around here! – Bill “Jett” Ramey
