The Batman – Part II
“Saltburn” and “Eternals” star Barry Keoghan has addressed his potential appearance as The Joker in Matt Reeves’ “The Batman – Part II”. The character has a brief cameo towards the end, though a later released online deleted scene showed off Keoghan in the role.

Speaking with E Talk, he was asked about his involvement and says: “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?.” Filming on the sequel is rumored to begin as early as March. [Source: Culture Crave]
