The Batman Actor Barry Keoghan Feels ‘blessed’ to Join Dc Universe

Cameos have become nearly a prominent role in our culture, although the art of the cameo is subtle. Today’s movie culture places a premium on cameos for their potential shock value, as well as the marketing boost they provide and the overall enhancement (or detriment) they may or may not provide to a film. However, the fact is that we will always love them because they are simply entertaining. Not sorry, sorry.

Spoiler alert: Barry Keoghan’s cameo as the Joker in “The Batman” was one of the most talked-about cameos of the year. A red herring, it was: he doesn’t play Commissioner Gordon’s ex-partner Stanley Merkel. Although brief, this moment has become a major talking point for the forthcoming Batman film.

Keoghan discussed his role in the film with Esquire Middle East in an interview released on Sunday, March 6; he gave director Matt Reeves much of the credit for his performance.

Keoghan’s cameo allowed him to appear on television with the fantastic Paul Dano, who (spoiler alert) plays the Riddler. The star of “Eternals” also discussed working with Dano, and made a point I had never considered before but can’t stop thinking about. “Paul has a massive fan in me. And he’s a really decent guy to boot! “Keoghan stated to the media. “Including “Prisoners” and all of his other films, I have seen them all. Also, I’ve heard that we’re similar and I’m like, are we?”

I can’t believe that this is my first time considering this! There is no denying that Keoghan and Dano have similar acting skills and, truth be told, could play the same roles, even if they don’t view themselves as acting siblings.

I mean, just imagine if Keoghan played both Paul and Eli Sunday in There Will Be Blood or a younger Dano played Martin in The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Certainly, the other person’s performances in those roles would have been different, but would they have been bad? And/or a departure from the original intent? In all likelihood, no. It’s not surprising that Dano and Keoghan’s performances would reflect each other in some manner; in fact, it’s only natural that their roles as the Riddler and the Joker would bring this idea to a head. What we really need is a movie featuring Keoghan’s Joker at his absolute peak, which is probably not too far off, to be honest.
