Willem Dafoe Talks 'Justice League'; 'Zack Snyder Certainly Has A Heavy Stamp On It.'

Willem Dafoe joined the DC Extended Universe as Nuidis Vulko, a character pivotal to Arthur Curry, Aquaman, and will appear in next year's Justice League. Dafoe was recently interviewed by The Guardian and of course a few question arose about the film and Dafoe replied giving us his outlook on certain things. Also he confirmed in the interview that he did indeed film in Iceland, where Snyder was filming mainly Aquaman related material.

When asked about how Justice League isn't his usual go to for films, given that he goes for more personal ones, Dafoe replied with, "well, 'Justice League' is very particular because it’s an ensemble movie and my character is being introduced here in order to be a principal role in Aquaman. These films are a different experience. They have different responsibilities, different resources and different intentions. It’s nice to go between those worlds if you can. They serve different impulses."

Dafoe was then reminded that he was at the epicentre of this superhero genre with him being in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man. Dafoe remarked on how it was something new, "and [Spider-Man] was interesting because, as big as that film was, Sam Raimi didn’t have a formula. And I think with 'Justice League' I think they’re trying to play around with the formula. Zack Snyder certainly has a heavy stamp on it. But Spider-Man was a very personal film to Sam. He really believed in the story. It was dear to him. It was fun to see a big studio film like that be so personal. I mean, nothing’s perfect, but it’s a good film."

Dafoe will be seen again after Justice League in James Wan's Aquaman, which is set to begin production soon.

Fuelled 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.

Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner James Gordon, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Ciaran Hinds as Steppenwolf, and Kiersey Clemons as Iris West.

Justice League hits theatres November 17, 2017.
