Potential “The Batman” Spoilers

I first want to start off by saying this is only a rumor that was recently proposed about the latest Batman film, and it might be proven later to be false. So be prepared for a potential plot point and character arc being spoiled. That being said, I am going to get right into it. Scroll down to find out more.

Actor Barry Keoghan, known for his roles in ‘Dunkirk’, ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’, and ‘Love/Hate’, was hired back in August to play character Stanley Merkel in the upcoming The Batman, but the casting might be a deception.

In the comics, Stanley Merkel was the partner of James Gordon’s when he first joined the police in Gotham City. He later died very grimly to a villain named the Hangman.

It is unlikely the rising star and talented actor will be playing a minor roll. The people over at Heavy Spoilers proposes that Barry will actually be playing… wait for it…

The Joker!

Rumor states that Barry Keoghan will be playing a major villain in the upcoming movie. It might be a little far fetched that he will be the iconic clown. Especially since Batman has one of the largest rouge gallery of characters to choose from.

Rumors have also said Barry might be another villain. He could be set up in this film as a cameo to eventually become The Mad Hatter, a villain we have yet to see on screen. At the same time, he might just be a corrupt cop.

I personally would like to see him as a figurehead for the Court Of Owls, a recent Batman story about a secret society of Gotham elites controlling the city from behind the scenes.
