With the “reveal” of Jared Leto’s new look that he’ll don in Suicide Squad to portray the Clown Prince of Crime, The Joker, many a fan have wondered what his take on the character will be.
For fans, there are three definitive takes on the character. Jack Nicholson in the Tim Burton film, Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight, and Mark Hamill in the numerous animated series/movies/games he did the character in. So where does Leto’s Joker fit in all of this???
“He wants to make the character completely his own. He knows that this role may be his most difficult ever, but he is confident that he will make his version of the Joker the best. This Joker will be more cerebral and comedic than what we have seen before, nobody should expect a copycat version. It’s going to be awesome!”
Hmm…so a possible combination of previous works. Or possibly, he’ll wow us with a side we haven’t seen on screen before. With the Joker, there is many ways to play it. We’ll just have to see as we wait for August of next year to arrive.
