Besides Joaquin Phoenix starrer Joker, the thing DC fans have been fussing about is Robert Pattinson being cast as the new Batman for Matt Reeves' directorial, The Batman. However, before we actually get to see the Twilight (2008) star don the uniform of the Caped Crusader, the actor's recent outing is The Lighthouse. Directed by Robert Eggers, The Lighthouse also stars Willem Dafoe and is of the black and white horror genre. The movie has already been a part of several film festivals and the reviews have been riveting, to say the least!

It's Robert and Willem's incredible performance in The Lighthouse that has gotten the common folks very excited for the film to release in theatres. A24, the entertainment company that is associated with The Lighthouse, has submitted Pattinson's name in the Best Actor category at Oscars 2020. They have also submitted Dafoe's name in the Best Supporting Actor category at Oscars 2020. If the Tenet star gets nominated for The Lighthouse, this will be the first Oscar nomination for the 33-year-old actor.

On the other hand, Willem has been nominated before in the Best Supporting Actor category for Platoon (1986), Shadow of the Vampire (2000) and The Florida Project (2017). This year's Oscars saw Dafoe nominated in the Best Actor category for At Eternity's Gate (2018). If he gets nominated for The Lighthouse, this will the third consecutive year for Willem to be nominated for an Oscar.
