The Justice League Snyder Cut is just a few days away, and fans can’t wait to see Jared Leto reprise his role as Joker.
And it looks like expectations are very positive for Warner Bros.
According to the Geekosity website, studio executives were so impressed with fans’ response to the character that they are considering hiring Snyder for an adaptation of “ The Deadly Joke ” with Leto in the lead role.
For those who are not familiar, “The Deadly Joke” was written by Alan Moore (“Watchmen”) and drawn by Brian Bolland (“Camelot 3000”) in 1988 and is widely regarded as one of the best comics of. all the time.
In the plot, Moore explores the psychology of the Joker, detailing how an unsuccessful comedian on the verge of insanity turns into a sadistic and violent killer. This is the theme of the story: Joker wanted to prove that the healthiest man could become the craziest … Over the pages, the villain tries to drive Commissioner Gordon crazy, but Batman kicks in.
While Joaquin Phoenix revitalized Crime Clown on the big screen, it’s worth remembering that his Joker was an independent film, unrelated to the DCEU.
Leto would therefore be the best bet to continue the shared universe created by Snyder in 2013 with “Man of Steel”.
As of yet, Warner Bros has not commented on the matter, so consider it a rumor.
Meanwhile, Leto returns as Joker in “ Justice League, ” which will be added to the HBO MAX catalog on March 18.
In Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’, determined to ensure that Superman’s (Henry Cavill) final sacrifice is not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) teams up with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with the intention of recruit a team of metahumans to protect. the world facing an imminent threat of catastrophic proportions. The task is more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face off against demons from their own past to transcend what stood in their way, allowing them to unite and ultimately form an unprecedented league of heroes. Now 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. “.
