Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably aware of Zack Snyder’s Justice League gearing towards a 2021 release. The movie, which was finally announced earlier this year after years of fan campaigns, will be Snyder’s own version of the 2017 movie, before it was rewritten and changed following his departure.
A number of exciting changes are on the cards for the movie, with the latest one being the reveal that Jared Leto is set to reprise his role as The Joker for the cut.
Leto, who’s only appearance as the Clown Prince of Crime came in 2016’s Suicide Squad, will return to the role and finally get a real crack at his take on the character.
One of the biggest criticisms from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad was Leto’s Joker, but the 30 Seconds to Mars front man wasn’t given a fair crack at the whip.
With significantly less screen time than originally intended, Leto’s Joker was never given a chance to really make an impact and fans weren’t given the time to warm up to the character. This return gives Leto a chance to finally right those wrongs and give him a second chance at making his interpretation of The Joker one to remember.
I, for one, am excited to see Leto return and believe wholeheartedly he’ll come away from Zack Snyder’s Justice League with a much warmer reception for the role than he currently has.
