Willem Dafoe joins Justice League in a mystery role
The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Willem Dafoe has joined the cast of Warner Bros.‘ upcoming Justice League movie. It’s unclear what character he’ll be playing in the movie, though the outlet notes that he won’t be playing a villain but a “good guy,” which doesn’t necessarily mean another superhero.
Dafoe is perhaps most well-known for playing Norman Osborn, aka The Green Goblin, in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man series. He also appeared in other fan-favorite films like The Boondock Saints, American Psycho, and John Wick. He’s been previously nominated for two Oscars for his supporting roles in Platoon and Shadow of the Vampire.
Batman v Superman‘s Zack Snyder will return to direct the film, making it his third DC project in a row, from a script by Argo‘s Chris Terrio. Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot star as the DC Trinity, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman in the film with Jason Mamoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as The Flash. Amber Heard is set to play Queen Mera in the film as well before moving to the solo Aquaman movie in 2018, with J.K. Simmons set to appear as Commissioner Gordon. Justice League is currently filming in London with on location shooting to also take place in Iceland.
Justice League will debut in theaters on November 10, 2017.
