If there is one hot topic surrounding Warner Bros. eagerly anticipated villainous ensemble, Suicide Squad, it is Jared Leto’s portrayal of The Joker. Since the first trailer was released at Comic Con, and fans got a look at a tattooed Clown Prince of Crime, many have been longing to see this very unique take on DC’s famous antagonist.
For those who simply cannot wait until Suicide Squad hits to see Leto’s Joker and inevitably compare it to previous on screen portrayals, CBR has reported that YouTube user AparTall has taken every Joker scene from the Suicide Squad trailers and compiled them into one handy video. There are even slow-motion bits to really start analysing those scenes.
Check out the video below:
Since Leto was cast as The Joker we have heard varying reports that the Oscar winning actor is taking the role very seriously. So seriously, in fact, he claimed to have met with drug-lords and killers to prepare for the role. That is a serious case of method acting right there. Multiple members of the film’s cast, including Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), have stated Leto sent weird gifts to them. Director David Ayer confessed Leto’s embodiment of The Joker even creeped him out.
We don’t have long to wait to see Leto’s take on iconic villain as Suicide Squad hits cinemas on 5 August.
“From director David Ayer (“Fury,” “End of Watch”) comes “Suicide Squad,” starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (“Ali,” “The Pursuit of Happyness”), Oscar winner Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Focus”), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix’s “House of Cards”) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”).
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?”
