Jared Leto is really up for returning as The Joker and I am all for it…

Oh, yes, please!

I know, I know… a lot of people didn’t like Jared Leto’s Joker in Suicide Squad well, I don’t care because I really DID like his Joker and would love to have seem more of him.

And, given that we know his Joker will be in Birds of Prey (although likely not played by Leto as we’re guessing it’s a brief flashback appearance) I definitely believe we will see him again.

Now the actor, talking to Variety and iHeart (below) has revealed that he would absolute love to come back for the gig: “I would definitely play the Joker again.

“It all depends on the script and the circumstances as it always does.”

Asked if his Joker and Harley appear in Birds of Prey, he teases: “I don’t think so. You’d have to ask them,” before adding, “Well, we’ll see…”

Honestly, I think Warners/DC have plans for Leto’s Joker in the future and with Birds of Prey, the Suicide Squad sequel and Batman all in varying stages of production, I’d bet we’ll see him pretty soon


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
