Jared Leto to play The Joker in Suicide Squad


Yesterday, the internet almost broke again for comic book fans. Warner Bros announced the cast line up for DC’s “The Suicide Squad”. Now, if you’re unfamiliar with the “Squad” here’s the lowdown:  they’re a team of super villains, who are given a second chance to redeem themselves by performing missions for the government. The cast features some strong actors such as Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang and 30 Seconds to Mars singer, Jared Leto as The Joker. And surprise! Most people are not excited for Leto to reprise the role that Heath Ledger knocked out of the park in “The Dark Knight”.

Clearly, these people have never seen Leto in “Requiem for a Dream”, “The Dallas Buyers Club”, hell even “Lord of War” (basically stealing the show from Nic Cage). Either way, the film is scheduled to be released August of 2016. Hopefully he recreates the Joker that was in the Arkham Asylum games. What are you thinking ? Is this a good cast lineup? Will you see it? Comment away! In the meantime, watch one of Leto’s 30 Seconds to Mars videos.  Enjoy!
