Willem Dafoe has always looked and sounded as though he’s slightly more than human, and now he’ll be appearing alongside a bevy of superhumans in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Warner Bros. two-part mega-flick Justice League. He was part of the beginning of the superhero-movie revolution, appearing as Norman Osborn/the Green Goblin in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man franchise, and now he’s following in the footsteps of fellow Spidey veteran J.K. Simmons by defecting from that Marvel-Comics-originated world to the universe of DC Comics characters. Speaking of characters, the scoop from The Hollywood Reporter has no information about who Dafoe will be playing. Will, um, he be da friend or da foe?
