Who plays the Joker in the cameo scene of The Batman?
As one of the most familiar comic heroes constantly appearing on the big screen – as well as video games and cartoon series – Batman and his world well known to the general public. This means that when a new version of him comes out, it’s quite natural to see how that new interpretation spreads to the rest of Gotham City. This will definitely happen leads to Joker.
Matt Reeves’ Batman filming a mysterious version fueled by Nirvana of the Caped Crusader is truly enthralling and he takes on the Riddler extremely characteristic, a makeover done by Queer Eye Fab Five if they’re more of a serial killer than a self-assertive. Anyone would wonder: If this was the Riddler, what would Reeves’ Joker look like?

BatmanIts logo is a set of scenes devoted to final grace notes for its characters. One of those scenes caught Riddler (Paul Dano), currently locked in Arkham Asylum – where he struck up a conversation with someone in a nearby cell.
The film never clearly shows the speaker, but through a small window in the cell door next to it, one can see a pale face and a familiar grin. That, aside from some colorful language involving the clown metaphor, leaves little room for ambiguity: This guy is almost certainly the Joker.
Further reinforcing this is that he is played by Barry Keoghan (The Eternals, The Kill of a Sacred Deer), the recipient gets paid stars in the credits. This will cause most viewers familiar with Keoghan’s face to blink a few times, because he is nowhere to be seen and can’t recognize anyone in the scene where he’s talking to Dano’s Riddler .
As for what his looks might mean, that’s a little harder to clarify. There are currently no announced sequel plans for Batman, although one is almost certainly under consideration. Warner Bros. announced a spinoff HBO Max series starring Colin Farrell in Penguinas well as a focus on Gotham Police Department. Both can have the Joker in some way – an idea supported by director Matt Reeves in an interview with the Toronto Sunwhere he alludes to the Penguin series and another series “connected to Arkham”.
This would make for the fourth Joker movie, a somewhat silly number considering Batman’s stellar villains. Of course, Keoghan’s really the role is “Unnamed Arkham Prisoner”, so we could be wrong too. Maybe he climbing plants!
