In a recent interview, Zack Snyder has revealed an all-new look at his Justice League Joker and shines new light on Jared Leto’s new look
The Justice League Joker has been revealed. At last, we have been allowed a peek behind the curtain covering the upcoming Zack Snyder version of ‘Justice League‘. It was revealed on Super Bowl Sunday that a new trailer will be with us on Valentine’s Day, February 14th. And today has seen the unveiling of Jared Leto, returning as the clown prince of crime, The Joker. Hold on to yourselves, you’re in for a shock:
This version of the Joker is significantly different than the version that Leto portrayed in the ‘Suicide Squad‘ back in 2016. For starters, the character’s look is completely different than before. This new version bears similarities to the Joaquin Phoenix version from the Oscar-winning film rather than the version seen in David Ayer’s movie. Leto had most of his scenes cut from that film but what remained isn’t anything like this. This is THE JOKER, the version that he should have been allowed to play five years back.
If you could take Phoenix’s version of the character and combine its DNA with the late Heath Ledger’s incarnation (which also won an Oscar for the same character), you could come up with this new Leto incarnation. But without a doubt, this new look at what Jared Leto will bring this time around gives us the belief that Snyder isn’t messing about. He means business. This could quite possibly become the quintessential comic book movie of them all. It looks dark, violent, nasty, and ready to blow the world away. We already know the film has garnered an R rating so anything is possible.
The film hits HBO MAX on March 18th.
Now if Snyder can spring a massive surprise and get Margot Robbie to appear in the film as Harley Quinn too, that would be the icing on a very large and what could be a rather fulfilling cake.
