Willem Dafoe Briefly Talks Justice League And How Spider-Man Helped His Career

Speaking at a press conference celebrating his receiving the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival’s Crystal Globe for his contributions to world cinema, Dafoe talked quite briefly about his endeavours in the superhero world, firstly about his most recent one, DC Films' Justice League and secondly Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. Thanks to The Playlist here's a transcript of what he said.

What he thinks about Gal Gadot and what he can say about “Justice League”

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.

On whether Sam Raimi’s “Spider-Man” was a career boost

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.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.  Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.  But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder, this marks the big screen debut of the Justice League, featuring an all-star lineup: Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher. With JK Simmons as Comissioner Gordon, Amber Heard as Mera, and Willem Dafoe as Vulko.
