While he does the villain so well, Willem Dafoe is set to play one of the good guys in “Justice League”, reports THR.
Zack Snyder is directing the film which sees Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), the Flash (Ezra Miller) and Cyborg (Ray Fisher) team up to combat a threat beyond each member’s capabilities.
While he’s said to appear in both Parts 1 & 2 in a “good guy” role, we don’t have any specific details on Dafoe’s role.
J.K. Simmons is also on board to play Gotham City Police Commissioner Gordon.
Chris Terrio wrote the screenplay. Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder are producing.
The film will be released in two parts by Warner Bros. “Justice League: Part One” will open on November 17, 2017, followed by “Part Two” on June 14, 2019.
