With the recent news that Zack Snyder’s Justice League is getting ready to take filming over to Iceland, there were reports going around that Jared Leto would be appearing in the film as well, reprising the role of The Joker. However, The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez confirmed today that Leto is in fact not showing up in Justice League.
Sorry DC fanboys. Yesterday’s rumor that surfaced about Jared Leto being in JUSTICE LEAGUE? Unfortunately, not true. #DEADED
