Willem Dafoe wants to play a 'Joker imposter' alongside Joaquin Phoenix

Willem Dafoe has shared an “interesting” pitch for a Joker sequel.

The 66-year-old Spider-Man actor hinted at expanding his role in the Marvel and DC Universe during an interview with GQ.

For a long time, many fan videos have appeared on social media showing that Dafoe has physical similarities to the original Joker in comic books.
