Robert Pattinson as the new Batman will reportedly fight not just one villain in the upcoming film. There are several reports by entertainment portals and leading dailies suggesting that Johnny Depp is in talks with the makers of The Batman to play one of the antagonists in the film. According to these reports, Depp will be seen playing the role of Joker in the film.

The makers were surprisingly also considering to cast Depp as the menacing villain in the previous instalment of the Batman series, The Dark Knight. 

Johnny Depp will next be seen in Minamata. The film premiered this February at the Berlin International Film Festival but the official release date is not yet announced by the makers.  He will also star in the third instalment of the Fantastic Beasts' franchise, wherein Depp will reprise his role as Gellert Grindelwald.
