August is approaching and the hype surrounding Suicide Squad is increasing. The film is going to see a notorious bunch of criminals brought together to fight a bigger villain and it is going to see Jared Leto in what is considered to be one of his best performances till date.
DC Comic is going all out to reach the level that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has reached and they are hoping that Suicide Squad is their big ticket to that league.
The film might have created a lot of buzz in the DC Comic community, but the major buzz is surrounding Jared Leto’s role as the Joker. The Joker is one of the most iconic roles in the history of cinema and it has been immortalized by actors like Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger.
There is already news of the director of Suicide Squad, David Ayer being scared of Jared Leto in his Joker avatar. Jared Leto has been traumatizing his fellow cast members while in his garb of the Joker. The role of the Joker is a very challenging one and hence Jared Leto would stay in the character even in between shots and this would scare the cast and crew.
Jared Leto ended upsending a dead pig to the rehearsal and scared Viola Davis. Viola Davis said that she couldn’t believe the fact that a henchman had actually come in and dropped a dead pig on the table and had walked off.
This incident happened even before the cast had been introduced to Jared Leto and Viola Davis confessed that she realized how committed this person was to the character.
This wasn’t all the crazy that Jared Leto had done. He had also sent Margot Robbie a live rat in a box. The poor actress had freaked out when she opened the box to realize that there was rat inside it, but had then taken it back home with her.
Melty had reported that David Ayer has been all praise for Jared Leto in the role of Joker and said that he was incredible. When Jared Leto would start acting, it would seem like the whole world had stopped. He was menacing, powerful and everyone would drop whatever they were doing to watch him perform.
The character demands the physical and psychological commitment from the actor and hence it is considered to be a very difficult role. David Ayer isn’t the only one who is all praise for the actor, Jack Snyder, the director of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, has gone on record to state that Jared Leto has done a commendable job as the Joker.
Snyder has gone on record to state that he has never seen an actor who was so committed to his role. Will Smith, who plays the role of Deadshot in the film has said that he has never met Jared Leto while they were shooting for six months.This shows how impressive Jared Leto was as the Joker.
There is a lot of discussion on how the Suicide Squad trailer doesn’t show much of the Joker. This hasn’t gone down well with fans of the character and they are hoping that by the time Suicide Squad is released there will be more trailers that will depict the Joker in details.
With all the hype that is surrounding the character, there are speculations that DC Comic didn’t release any trailer with Joker in the helm of it for a purpose. It looks like DC Comic has a lot of things planned for the character.
