We finally get a full look at Jared Leto’s Joker at Zack Snyder’s Justice League. One of the many new things we’ll see in the full version of Snyder’s movie is the Clown Prince of Crime, played by Leto. This will be the first time we’ve seen this version of the character since its appearance in 2016. Suicide squad. It’s safe to say that it will be a markedly different version.
Zack snyder He had previously shared a photo of the character with a blurred background. None, we can see the new version in its entirety. Gone are facial tattoos and glamor. Instead, he sports long hair and a hospital gown. Joker is something that not only wasn’t in the original 2017 theatrical cut, it wasn’t even part of the original plan. As Snyder said in an interview to accompany the reveal of the photo, it’s the only thing he added after the fact.
“The Joker is really the only thing I thought about in hindsight. But I will say that it was always my intention to bring the Joker into that world.”
The director also reveals that Joker wears bulletproof armor in some scenes that has police badges on it. “Those are his trophies,” Snyder said. The filmmaker also explained how Jared Leto’s Joker in this version of League of Justice. Warning: this ventures in smooth revelation territory. Read on at your own risk. As some predicted, it will take place during a dream sequence experienced by Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne. It’s a vision that reveals what happens if they allow Darkseid to win. Much like the one we saw in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Snyder had this to say about it.
“The good thing about the scene is that it’s Joker talking directly to Batman about Batman. It’s Joker analyzing Batman about who he is and what he is. That’s what I also felt fans deserved from the DC Universe. I mean, the Jared Leto Joker and Ben Affleck Batman, they never really got together. I didn’t think it’s great that we get to the end of this incarnation of Batman and Joker without seeing them come together … The scene explains why Bruce had the Joker card attached to his weapon that you see in Batman v Superman. “
Zack Snyder also explained that if he managed to make another DCEU movie, which is highly unlikely, he would explore the death of Robin, who had been teased in BvS. As for what happened to Joker since Suicide squad in regards to your radically changed appearance? Snyder had this to offer.
“I’d say there was some water under the bridge. Who knows what happened. I don’t know if she’s wearing makeup, I don’t know what’s going on. It’s hard to say exactly.”
The Snyder Cut, as it is commonly known, arrives at four o’clock. It will be released at once as a movie, not as a miniseries, as previously reported. Zack snyder League of Justice hits HBO Max on March 18. Be sure to see the photos for yourself of Vanity fair.
