The shadowy figure’s face wasn’t shown, and the voice of that person was played by Barry Keoghan.

Barry Keoghan is exhibiting an American accent and is having a severely scarred face. The shadowy figure of Barry is leading to an assumption of Joker from the Death of the Family Joker who has removed and recrafted his own face.

In the Batman 2022 movie, the shadowy figure, assumed to be Joker’s offered a riddle to the Riddler and advised him to team up, with that Joker reveals his new chilling laugh. The new laugh of Joker seems innocent but at the same time had a very creepy variation of the earlier ones.

And the suggestion of Akhram’s spin-off TV series following the course of The Batman, there might be an opportunity of both Dano and Keoghan. The idea will combine both of their mental and physical strengths and might take on Robert Pattinson’s Batman again.

There were some accusations on ‘The Batman’ movies following the same inspiration every time, the screen writer has to keep in mind that Joker shouldn’t be mothballed. There are a lot of possibilities unexplored yet related to Batman’s Rogues Gallery, but we all agree, ‘The Batman’ Joker is shocking mirror which would preserve its vengeance image. And Joker not being involved would create an unsatisfying imbalance to the story.

In The Batman Movie, Robert Pattinson’s Batman is fighting off with these types of gangs mocking and troubling people of Gotham. A new brand of ultraviolence is focused by Matt Reeves in the premiere against these types of mooks.

Their appearance reminds people of someone, although it could just be a couple of criminals roaming Gotham, but we all know there is no smoke without fire. The interesting things about this gang is that each one of them has scars drawn on their faces, which hint their inspiration from Joker’s adventures. But at the end, the Joker’s display of scarred face might lead to something else. Well, the balance would be complete when the greatest nemesis enters Robert Pattinson’s Batman during his early stages of his journey.
