Willem Dafoe has been tapped to play a reportedly good guy (surprise!) in fall 2017’s Justice League: Part One and – good for him – summer 2019’s Justice League: Part Two.
Whiplash’s J.K. Simmons is already on board the projects (at least, the first movie, right?, as Commissioner Gordon of Gotham. No word on what character exactly Dafoe will portray, but since he’s signed on for both blockbusters, you can bet he’s gonna matter.
The actor joins a cast led by Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot that also will feature Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher (who will play Cyborg), and Amber Heard, among others.
