I'll trust Matt Reeves in whatever direction he wants to go.

The Joker, played by Barry Keoghan, was shown at the end of the first part. However, there could be chances of him not being the main villain in The Batman 2. What are your opinions on who should be in the sequel, especially as a Villain?
