Are You Excited About Jared Leto's Joker?

Jared Leto as the beloved nemesis of Batman? What's not to love?!

Posted on

First of all, who doesn't love Jared Leto? We've seen him in movies like Requiem for a Dream, Dallas Buyers Club, and now he's the most infamous supervillain of all time - The Joker! There have been several renditions of The Joker including actors Jack Nicholson, and the deceased Heath Ledger.

I know what everyone is thinking. Is Jared the right guy for this part? Will he compare to Ledgers version? My answer is yes. Yes, Jared Leto will do an amazing job for Suicide Squad's The Joker. Why? Because he's proven he could handle the most uncomfortable situations of being an actor. Not only did he basically wax his whole body for the role of Rayon - a trans women with HIV - but he also achieved the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

Jared Leto can handle the job of recreating The Joker in a way no other has done. Simple as that.
