Jared Leto to Star as the Joker

Jared Leto might be the one who will star in a new interesting project. Reports reveal that the famous actor will play Joker in Suicide Squad. Jared Leto is widely known for his role in Dallas Buyer Club, movie which actually brought him an Oscar and worldwide fame. 

Suicide Squad is Warner Bros’ latest project. The new film will be directed by David Ayer. This is a story about supervillains, who are actually given the chance to redeem themselves. The action is expected to be really interesting. If Jared Leto will play the role of The Joker, he will actually be the first person to play the villain since Heath Ledger. 

Heath Ledger managed to create an absolutely unique character, winning a posthumous Oscar for the role in The Dark Knight. In fact, his role and performance actually changed the perception on villains. The Joker was an amazingly interesting character, which made Batman the best superhero movie ever released. Heath Ledger created a memorable character and many fans surely thought that no one can ever portray as good this character. 

So, the expectations from Jared Leto are extremely high. Some reports indicated that Leto has actually not been the first choice of producers. It had been revealed that the first choice for this part has in fact been Ryan Gosling. However, Jared Leto proved to be a very talented actor, so it is yet to see what performance he will be able to achieve. 

Apparently, the famous actor refused to take the part due to the lack of time and the fact that he might be committed to a series of sequels that are mostly likely going to be released linked to this project. 

David Ayer is expected to be the director of the new movie. The movie director is also known for his work End of Watch and Fury. The cast of the movie has not been announced yet, but Suicide Squad is expected to be released in August, 2016. 

Well, it is yet to see what fans will think of Jared Leto as the Joker, if the news turns out being true.
