the batman star Robert Pattinson has revealed that his favorite DC villain is the Condiment King. And while Battison was confirmed not to be a part of the DCEU, he does open doors to include new characters that may be too specific to the main story Warner Bros wants to tell. This means that the Condiment King gets a chance to show why he is worthy of being Batman’s nemesis. And fans have begun to cast a worthy actor to take on the bats.
Reddit user u/Venus_One sets the scene with a trailer for the batman sequel in 2024. Instead of DC bringing back Joker or Bane, Condiment King is announced to be the main baddie in the upcoming sequel. They then asked the community who DC would most likely pick as this new niche enemy.
Fans came up with multiple suggestions for a worthy, but possible actor who is most likely to take on the role of this cheeky villain. One suggestion that came to mind was Jablinsky’s own games, Jack Black. And I’m not going to lie, I’d watch to see Black himself be his goofy self in a dark, serious movie. He rarely gets roles as a supervillain.
Others suggested Jim Carrey if he decides to cancel his retirement plans. He was successful as Dr. Robotnik in the Sonic films and said that he would be interested in returning to the film industry if the script is good.
Others suggested that Keanu Reeves take on the role. Because why not use a meme-capable actor to play a serious but also meme-capable role in a dark and gritty movie?
One pointed to Eddie Redmayne of the fantastic beasts franchise and how this Academy Award-winning kid has expressed interest in playing Bananaman, according to ComicBook.com. They believe that Condiment King is the closest thing he will have to playing the comedic character from the comic.
But out of all the well-known celebrities in the industry, the best actor that fans deemed worthy of playing the Condiment King is celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay. He introduces this man to the acting industry. He is going viral on his daughter’s social networks.
Marvel Studios made a name for itself by showcasing superheroes that were barely known to comics and casual Marvel fans. And if DC really wants to take inspiration from Kevin Feige for the future of their film franchise, maybe they should showcase an unknown villain to take on a popular DC hero.
