Jared Leto Teases His Disturbing Joker Performance in SUICIDE SQUAD
Judging from the first trailer for David Ayer's Suicide Squad, Jared Leto is going to give an insane performance as the Joker. This version of the villain is very different from any other portrayal that we've seen before. Leto took this role very seriously, and from what we've heard, he transformed himself into a crazy man to bring the Joker to life.
Leto recently did a Q&A at Dubai Music Week, and when a fan wearing a Batman shirt went up to ask him a question, the actor noticed the shirt and then teased how chilling his performance would be. The National was in attendance, and this is their recap of what happened:
And to the wise-guy who turned up in a Batman shirt? “You’re really brave,” deadpanned Leto, before letting out a deranged laugh, referencing his upcoming role as The Joker in Suicide Squad. "I can’t wait for you to see this – they’re going to lock me away in a box after this movie comes out."
It sounds like his portrayal could end up being even more insane than we think it will be. I liked what I saw of the Joker in the trailer, but there's obviously going to be a lot more to him than just that. I'm looking forward to seeing how far Leto actually went into la-la-land to bring Joker to life.
