Jared Leto Talks Joker Returning to Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’

Jared Leto Is Candid About Returning To The Joker Role For Zack Snyder’s Version Of Justic League

The stories behind both Jared Leto’s Joker and Zack Snyder’s Justice League are now known. After the disappointment at the cash register of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Warner Bros has opted to make some changes to the two upcoming films. Those movies were suicide squad and Justice League

In suicide squadJared Leto made his debut as The Joker. His performance was not well received and although director David Ayer went out of his way to defend the actor, most fans and critics were eager to leave this version. Zack Snyder, on the other hand, does not.

After years of campaigning, Warner Bros chose to make Zack Snyder his own part of Justice League for a release on HBO Max. This included finishing extensive effects work and filming additional scenes. One of those scenes was an additional Knightmare series in which Ben Affleck’s Batman faced Jared Leto’s Joker.

Since the scene was filmed, there’s been no word on whether this version of the Clown Prince Of Crime will reappear. Jared Leto himself has stated that he has not given up on the role, but if there are plans in the works, he has not revealed them. In a recent interview with ComicBookMovie.com, the actor talked about his collaboration with Zack Snyder and how grateful he is to have been able to work with both Marvel and DC:

It was amazing. Working with Zack is a beautiful thing. I love him. I really liked the chance. It was very special and I enjoyed it immensely. It’s unique to be part of DC and now part of Marvel. It’s quite amazing.

Here’s the synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League

“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure that Superman’s (Henry Cavill)’s ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) joins forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) to plan a team of recruit metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task turns out to be more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own past to transcend what held them back, allowing them to come together and eventually form an unprecedented class of heroes. Now that they’re united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid and their terrible intentions.”
