Jared Leto Tested ‘Joker’ Laugh In New York & Toronto

The Joker is an iconic character with the DC universe. Everything from his outfits to mode of transportation has become a part of this signature character, but one of the most signature personality traits is The Joker’s laugh.

In what has become second nature for Leto, he became completely engrossed in the role and developed his laugh by trying it out on unsuspecting citizens in both Toronto and New York.

“I kinda walked around the streets and see what laugh would kind of get under peoples’ skin. If you hear someone laugh loud at a restaurant it’s a little jarring. I tried them out and I got to a place where I would laugh and people would turn around like, ‘Who is this creepy guy behind me?’

As previously reported, Leto spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his deep commitment to the role and how he worked with Ayer to come up with this version of the infamous villain.

“You take a deep breath. There is a responsibility I suppose that you can feel but it’s also incredibly exciting. The work that’s been done on this character by so many people before me has been so impactful, so incredible, so much fun, so profound, so risky, that it’s a very special thing to be asked to take on that responsibility.”

“David and I had conversations and I think he trusted that I was going to go out and experiment and explore and come back with something for him to continue the collaboration with. And it was nice to have that trust from him. He really let me lose and encouraged me. That was a priceless thing when you’re working with a director to have that faith and trust.”

“It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?”

Suicide Squad comes out in theaters on August 5.

    Is this critic proof? Or is playing the Joker critic proof? I’m curious to see how the DCEU is received without Zack Snyder’s name on it.

    • SAMURAI36

      You know Zack produced this, right?

      • JMMagwood

        Critics don’t generally harbor ill will to producers like they do actors or directors. It’s a much more esoteric labor.

        They have the knives out for Zack as director. As producer, he’s just one of many names.

        • SAMURAI36

          True, but I think at this point, because Zack’s name is attached to the DCEU, people are gonna use that as a reason to hate on it.

          • JMMagwood

            I think that might be limited to the trolls. “Suicide Squad” seems to have a lot of advanced good will that “BvS” never had.

            If the critics do like it, expect to see a lot of backhanded complements like “It was good despite Snyder’s involvement as producer.” If they don’t like it, they’ll just dump on the entire production, but mostly on Ayer as writer/director.

          I wish Zack nuthin’ but the best, Maggie and Sammy.
