Lex Luthor isn’t the only problem that the DC Universe has, The Joker has taken over all social media accounts related to DC Comics. The Joker (Jared Leto) is set to appear in the upcoming Suicide Squad, which will be released on August 5th.
DC Comics Facebook Page has changed their profile picture and cover all, all indicating that The Joker was in control. It’s not clear what could be coming next, but with the infamous villain in control anything could happen.
With the attention turning from Batman v Superman to Suicide Squad, Leto recently opened up to Entertainment Weekly about what taking on this iconic character meant to him and that the task was massive.
“I haven’t formulated a lot of my thoughts on this. 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.”
Suicide Squad stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, with Raymond Olubawale as King Shark, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Adam Beach as Slipknot. Directed by David Ayer.
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 hits theaters August 5th, 2016.
