We now have what could be the first details about Jared Leto's Joker.
According to recent reports, Leto is trying hard to make sure that his interpretation of the Clown feels wholly original, steering clear of Heath Ledger or Jack Nicholson’s versions.
“Jared wants to make sure his Joker is not only something the fans will love, but he doesn’t want to step on the toes of Jack Nicholson or Heath Ledger,” an insider tells Hollywood Life.
“He knows that this role may be his most difficult ever, but he is confident that he will make his version of the Joker the best.”
The source elaborated by saying "This Joker will be more cerebral and comedic than what we have seen before."
“Cerebral” and “Comedic” certainly sounds like the Joker to us. It certainly sounds like he'll be going with more of an original take on the Joker to me. Though it will be very hard for his Joker to compete with some of the best takes on the Joker. Like Heath Ledger. Who's my personal favorite. He made his Joker brilliant yet psychotic, i loved it.
Would you be happy to see a more “cerebral and comedic” Joker in Suicide Squad?
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5th, 2016.
