After it was revealed that Willem Dafoe would be playing the famous Atlantean Vulko in Justice League, people were speculating about his role and how big his presence would be in the movie. Now, Dafoe has said a few things about the movie and about his co-star Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman.
“She looks good. (Laughs) I don’t want to talk about that. I’ve got so many movies to talk about. I’ll let them orchestrate the publicity on that movie. I’m happy to be a part of it and when it comes out I’ll be talking about it ad nausea. I shot part of it and I’ll go back and shoot some more. This is a DC Comics “Justice League” movie. Which is shooting now. Too soon to talk about.”
It appears that the star does not want to shed much light on a movie that’s a year and a half away. He also was asked about his role as the Green Goblin in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man and how that role affected his career.
“I think “Spider-Man” helped terrifically in that respect. Y’know, my struggle is I try to make a certain type of a movie and some of those movies don’t get distributed widely. And if people don’t see you for a while it’s hard to follow your career. And as distribution gets kind of less creative the big movie takes all the interest of the people. So when you do a movie that’s widely distributed, popular and a good movie and what you do with it is regarded well that has to be good for your career.”
Dafoe clearly has much respect for Raimi and his film that helped him get into the public eye. Dafoe also talked about his life, career, and even his teeth in the full article on The Playlist.
Justice League will be released in 2017 and stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, and Henry Cavill.
