Jared Leto Talks 'Suicide Squad' & Working With Director David Ayer
By Matt O.
Suicide Squad is getting close and closer!
In a recent interview with Total Film Magazine actor Jared Leto talked about which villain he actually thinks is worse than The Joker, that is of course The Devil, the actor said saying:
“The only villain who may be more infamous is the devil. The Joker is an icon, a legend, the baddest of the bad and seems to be having the most fun. Hard not to be a fan of that.”
Leto than went on to discuss talking with director David Ayer and both of them going over what it was really gonna take to really get into The Joker role.
“I knew I was going to have to dive deep and go to a place I had never gone before. We sat outside his house and talked and it was clear he wanted to make something really different. He wanted to break some rules, and that’s very compelling. I got the sense he was on a mission. This wasn’t just a movie for him. He had a lot of passion and ideas. He was also very decisive, which is needed when you’re walking upon trepidatious ground. His ideas and energy were infectious, and I knew I had to be a part of the adventure.”
I can't wait to see what happens this August with Jared Leto's Joker, not just my reaction either. I want to see the world's reaction to this version. Which for the first time ever, we will have someone playing The Joker on the big-screen more than once and probably for the next 10 years or more.
Sound off in the comments with your thoughts about the upcoming film and Jared Leto's portrayal of The Joker.
