Jared Leto has some mighty shoes to fill. The actor is portraying the iconic character of Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad. The role of Joker has been immortalized by Heath Ledger in the Dark Knight and has also been portrayed by noted actors like Jack Nicholson and Cesar Romero.
Jared Leto went through a rigorous makeover to make himself fit in the role of the Joker in the 2016 film. The actor who is known for his long locks had trimmed it off for the role. He got innumerable piercings and tattoos all over his body for the same.
The Oscar for Best Supporting Actor was won by Jared Leto for his role in Dallas Buyers Club. He had been seen onscreen in iconic films like Fight Club, Lord of Wars, American Psycho and The Thin Red Line.
The Jared Leto starred Suicide Squad has created a huge uproar already with its first trailer. The second trailer for the film is likely to come out early next year and it is believed that the trailer will focus mostly on Joker’s character.
The first trailer from Suicide Squad focused more on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. It is believed that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn along with Jared Leto’s Joker, are the characters to focus on in the film.
Even though the first trailer focuses more on Harley Quinn than on the Joker, the little bit that the viewers get a glimpse of the villain is enough to convince them how much Jared Leto has put in for his role.
The first look trailer that was released at the Comic-Con didn’t have much of the Joker in it, but the next trailer is expected to have more of Jared Leto as the Joker.
Jared Leto has given a flamboyant twist to the Joker. The character is seen sporting a gold jacket. He immediately sets the arena for his character, slapping a surprised man and then breaking into his iconic laugh that sets fear in every heart and shows of his toys.
One scene also has the Joker surrounded by armed men, but before things can get any worse for him, there is a huge explosion.
Harley Quinn and Joker are supposed to be romantically involved and one seen has the Joker jumping into a tank of chemicals and pulling Harley Quinn out of it.
The Joker might still not have enough footage, but like all the films where the Joker was a part of, he didn’t have much screen time, but the way he captivated the audience in those few moments was what mattered.
Jared Leto might be making all the news in his professional life with his role in Suicide Squad, but his personal life is also gathering a lot of interest from the media. The media had been trying to find out if Miley Cyrus and Jared Leto is a couple.
The two have been linked together since 2014 when Miley Cyrus was spotted after a sleepover at his place. It was immediately believed that the two are dating, but they had maintained the fact that they are just very good friends.
However, things seemed to have changed in 2015. Jared Leto broke up with model Stella Maxwell a few months back and with his work in the Suicide Squad over, it seems like the actor is now focused on his personal life. International Business Time has reported that Jared Leto and Miley Cyrus have become more than just friends.
Miley Cyrus had fuelled the fire with a controversial photo of the two of them stating that while she wanted to get cozy with Jared Leto he was busy sharing some secrets with her.
