Could Director Matt Reeves be changing Stanley Merkel’s backstory and adapting it for him to become The Joker? The rumor should obviously be taken with a pinch of salt but fans shouldn’t be surprised if this turns out to be true.

Keoghan certainly has a distinct look and it would be interesting to see how the actor would portray the iconic villain.
