August is almost upon us and the fans of the Joker are getting excited. Jared Leto is going to bring to life one of the most iconic character in the world of super villains. There is no surprise here that Jared Leto’s rendition of it will be unlike any that the world has ever seen.
Suicide Squad is about some of the most notorious villains coming together to save the world. However, the trailers of the film doesn’t really show Jared Leto in much action. The fans have only been given glimpses of the Joker’s character.
While this has disappointed some fans, others are hoping that this is a gimmick to gather more interest for the role of the Joker. This along with the fact that Leto had adopted his on screen character’s persona even while he was off the camera has caught the attention of the fans.
Jared Leto supposedly was scary when he was on screen. Even the director of Suicide Squad said that Leto would scare everyone off and he refused to take down the garb just because the camera wasn’t rolling. Leto has ended up sending dead pigs for the rehearsal and has sent rats to his on screen lover Margot Robbie just to enjoy himself in the role of Joker.
Jared Leto spoke to TNT Brasil during the Oscar and opened up about his role. He said that it was fun to interact with the co-stars through the eyes of the Joker. He said that the task of playing the Joker was a challenge that was unlike anything he had ever done.
The Joker is a very complex character and the actors who portray him have to channelize the Joker’s mind to bring out the nuances of the character and hence it is, but obvious that will start behaving like the Joker while they are portraying the character since it is difficult to turn of the Joker’s psychological perspective in between shots.
David Ayer had already made it very clear to the world that Jared Leto was simply scary when he used to be in the zone of the character and now Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder has come out to comment on the character of the Joker as portrayed by Jared Leto.
Zack Snyder applauded Leto for the commitment he has shown towards the role of the Joker and said that he has seldom seen actors give their all to bring a character to life. Snyder informed the viewers that Jared Leto will take them on a remarkable journey as a Joker, but he isn’t sure if everyone is up for it.
Movie Pilot has reported that since Joker isn’t being given the main space in the trailer for Suicide Squad, fans feel that it is measured plan by DC Comic.
DC Comic might have some plans for the Joker in the extended universe and they are going to keep him aside in the same fashion that Marvel adopted with Thanos.
With the fan dying to know what is up with the Joker and with very little available with them, the interest for the character will automatically go up. The same logic works like magic with Marvel every single time and DC Comic might be using it to help them out this time round.
