Jared Leto Posts Selfie As Joker; ‘Suicide Squad’ Throwback Or ‘Justice League’ Hint?

Jared Leto

It was just a casual evening until Jared Leto did his Jared Leto thing and dropped a selfie on Instagram of himself in full Joker regalia, lips, hair and tattoos all.

With Suicide Squad and Comic-Con around the corner, press has been ramping up for the comic book supervillain film, especially for Leto’s interpretation of the most famous villain of them all. What we don’t know at this moment is if the selfie is an old photo from the Squad shoot or, more intriguingly, perhaps the Joker is dropping by Justice League, currently filming in the not-so mean studios of London.

It’s a cool pic, with the distortion reminding me of the scene in Fight Club when Tyler Durden’s sweeping oratory shakes the film stock the movie is on. Outside of some cryptic emojis that smack of Leto’s Joker, that’s all we know for now. Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5.

    Leto’s Joker in “Justice League”? God, I hope so. I would love to see scene with him, Gadot and Cavill.

    Huh…. no broken teeth. Don’t know if it means anything. There could be a million reasons.

    could be from the video they are suppose to do together with Eminem. Apparently, his album has been delayed due to the soundtrack that he is working on for Suicide Squad and the soundtrack is Without me.

    honestly all this Joker pre-movie blitz is overkill. Cart before the horse. I think they should just let the movie going public decide the merits of his performance instead of hammering us with all of this ‘he’s going to be awesome’ fluff. Let us judge for ourselves. The more of this stuff I see the less I’m convinced.

      It’s just how the marketing works these days. Studios get their actors to get their followers hyped up for the upcoming movies. It’s not just him, it’s just how things work now.
