A Former Spider-Man Villain Has Been Confirmed For Justice League

Justice League, Zack Snyder’s latest film for DCEU may be the most anticipated and the most mysterious of all DCEU’s releases. But it seems like little by little, information has been dawning onto fan’s ears as the year quickly passes. The movie may have a 2017 release date, but the film has already created an air of anticipation for the “different” Snyder outing. The director had been ravaged by critics and fans for the overt seriousness of his previous films Man of Steel and Batman Vs Superman.


One thing the film will not be lacking is some very talented and renowned actors. The latest actor that has been added to the Justice League cast is actor William Defoe. The upcoming film will be Defoe’s first venture into DC films. Many superhero movie fans will know that Defoe played the villain Norman Osborn/Green Goblin in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man.


DeFoe will play the character of Vulko who is set to be a major part of James Wan’s upcoming Aquaman movie.Vulko is a key advisor to Aquaman, and he’s set to join Momoa and Amber Heard (Queen Mera) in the Justice League ensemble. The actor discussed his new role in his interview with The Guardian:

“Justice League is very particular because it’s an ensemble movie and my character is being introduced here in order to be a principal role in Aquaman. These films are a different experience. They have different responsibilities, different resources and different intentions. It’s nice to go between those worlds if you can. They serve different impulses.”

The actor also commented on the differences he observed between the Spider-man films from the early 2000’s and the current Cinematic Universe trend:

 “[Spider-Man] was interesting because, as big as that film was, Sam Raimi didn’t have a formula,” stated Dafor. “I think with Justice League I think they’re trying to play around with the formula. Zac Snyder certainly has a heavy stamp on it. But Spider-Man was a  very personal film to Sam. He really believed in the story. It was dear to him. It was fun to see a big studio film like that be so personal. I mean, nothing’s perfect, but it’s a good film.”
