Willem Dafoe On JUSTICE LEAGUE And How His Role In Sam Raimi's SPIDER-MAN Helped His Career

In a new interview, Willem Dafoe is asked about his role in Justice League. He's not allowed (or rather, doesn't want) to say too much, but does reveal a couple of interesting tidbits. Click on for more...



In an interesting, in-depth interview with The Playlist, Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, Antichrist, Shadow Of The Vampire) discusses everything from his 35-year stint in Hollywood, to the directors he's worked with, to his many roles. Of course, one particular upcoming role has the CBM community very excited indeed.

The recent Justice League set reports confirmed that Dafoe would be playing an Atlantean named Vulko in the movie, but unfortunately the actor isn't interested in discussing anything related to his role. When asked about that and his co-star, Gal Gadot, he did confirm that he'd already shot some of his scenes and would be returning to film some more at a later date.


"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."

Dafoe goes on to state that his role as the Green Goblin in Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man movie "helped terrifically" in boosting his career - though, in general, he prefers the freedom working on smaller projects allows.

"It’s more possible to make a personal, integrated film at a lower budget because you are responsible to less people to explain to them what it is. You don’t have to be so careful and so calculating. For a bigger budget you can make a more personal film, but it’s more difficult because you have to pay off the investment so you have to have it appeal to a lot of people. So, generally, I think I’m less involved in that because I think movies as their best really challenge how we think."

Be sure to head on over to The Playlist to check out the interview in full. Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
