The Batman: Barry Keoghan Says His Riddler Audition Tape Landed him the Role of Joker

Fans of The Batman received an excellent performance from Paul Dano as the Riddler when the film was released in March earlier this year. Dano gave a genuinely original portrayal and put his own spin on the villain who has terrorized Bruce Wayne for decades. However, one actor who also appeared in The Batman almost took the role from Dano. Barry Keoghan debuted as the Joker in the film, although his scene was relatively short and shrouded in mystery. Luckily, an extended deleted scene was released following the movie’s theatrical run, with Keoghan given more time to shine as the iconic villain of the caped crusader.
