Willem Dafoe is transformed into Batman‘s deadliest and most iconic villain, as artist Rahal Nejraoui imagines the talented actor as DC’s Joker. Dafoe has already made an appearance in DC’s filmography as Aquaman’s (Jason Mamoa) mentor Nuidis Vulko in the DCEU. The actor previously won comic book movie fans praise for his portrayal of Norman Osborn, AKA the Green Goblin.

Being no stranger to DC Comics characters, Dafoe starred in Aquaman and Zack Snyder’s Justice League as Nuidis Vulko, Vizier to the throne of Atlantis and mentor to Arthur Curry/Aquaman. Following his mother  Queen Atalanna’s (Nicole Kidman) supposed death, Vulko trained Arthur in his Atlantean gifts, before later aiding him against his evil half-brother Orm’s (Patrick Wilson) plot to wage war on the surface world as the Ocean Master.

Following this discussion, one fan has imagined what Dafoe could look like in his dream DC role.
