Another day, another rumor regarding David Ayer’s upcoming “Suicide Squad” feature. Perhaps the most anticipated reveal the film has yet to show off is that of Jared Leto’s new interpretation of The Joker.
Today, El Mayimbe has posted some details about this incarnation of the famed villain which will be more akin to the version seen in Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” comic. Along with that, it sounds like another Bat-villain might show up in the movie:
“Leto’s Joker is most definitely based on ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ version. He’s lean & scarred but his suit does have broad shoulders.
Joker works out in his cell like an inmate when he is interrogated by Amanda Waller. He’s doing hand stand push ups so it makes sense that Jared Leto said he is putting on weight. He’s definitely not skinny, but in fact more muscular. He has bleached skin not make up.
#SPOILER – He’s killed one of Batman’s sidekicks, there is a lot of references to his past crimes. He kills a lot of people.
HUGE #RUMOR – I’m also told The Joker has a lot of scenes with HUGO STRANGE! He’s the psychiatrist at the prison & seems to be a part of the story yet I heard nothing of casting or mention of a single casting choice.
Hugo Strange has quite a few interactions with the Joker & Harley Quinn. It’s not the regular security. It’s internal one on one thing. “
These reports follow on from yesterday where it has been suggested that Joe Manganiello is in line to play Deathstroke in the film.
