Fans of Batman, especially those of Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy, are eagerly looking forward to Jared Leto's version of the Clown Prince of Crime in DC Extended Universe's (DCEU) upcoming instalment "Suicide Squad."
Produced by Warner Bros., "Suicide Squad" will see Leto portraying the role of the iconic villain in his own "unique and different way," as reported by Comic Book. The website also stated that Leto's Joker will be inspired by the previous versions.
Talking with Deadline, Leto explained his character in the movie and what fans can expect from this latest version of The Joker.
"You can anticipate a lot of chaos and a hell of a lot of fun. And, I think, something completely different than other movies in the genre."
As reported by Comic Book, Jared LEto's acting method during the filming of "Suicide Squad" is well documented, and the actor is trying his best to become the iconic villain with his own unique identity.
However, he wants people to remember that how much he respects the character and all the actors who have portrayed the role before him. He also said that it was an honour to bring the character to life.
"Aww, it was a role of a lifetime. Really, it was an incredible honor to be asked to play the part. Look, there have been so many incredible performances of the Joker over the years. Then there's the wonderful artists that have drawn this character and the writers that have written the Joker for 75 years and more through television and film and animated projects. I found it a real honor to be asked to continue the tradition. I'm so grateful that I had the chance, that's my honest answer and my thoughts on it."
"Suicide Squad" is scheduled to hit the theatres on Aug. 5, 2016.
