New Details On Jared Leto's Take On 'The Joker' For SUICIDE SQUAD


Latino Review's El Mayimbe has posted the last of his Suicide Squad scoops, and this one relates to the incarnation of the Clown Prince of Crime Jared Leto will be playing in the film. As we'd all assumed from previous reports, this version of the character will (apparently) be primarily based on The Joker from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns -- he'll even have those exaggerated shoulders by the sounds of it. Also, anyone worried that we'd be getting another painted on clown face can rest easy, as Mayimbe reckons it's bleached skin all the way. He also provides details on what got The Joker locked away in the first place, but obviously beware of big SPOILERS before reading any further.

"He's lean & scarred but his suit does have broad shoulders. Joker works out in his cell like an inmate when he is interrogated by Amanda Waller. He's doing hand stand push ups so it makes sense that Jared Leto said he is putting on weight. He's definitely not skinny, but in fact more muscular. He has bleached skin not make up. He's killed one of Batman's sidekicks, there is a lot of references to his past crimes. He kills a lot of people."

Very interesting stuff... and there's more! It's just a rumour for now, but Mayimbe mentions another Bat-baddie that'll be conversing with The Joker in his cell: Hugo Strange. No word on potential casting for that role yet, but word is Strange will be the prison psychiatrist, so we might be looking at some cool Silence Of The Lambs style interactions. Let us know what you think of all this in the usual place.
