Zack Snyder’s Justice League producer Deborah Snyder discussed Joker’s role in the film, as well as how they filmed the cameo during the pandemic.
To nail your gaze Zack Snyder’s Justice LeagueJoker actor Jared Leto went through a lot of costumes to find the perfect one, literally. During an interview with CBR, producer Deborah Snyder discussed Joker’s role in the film, as well as how they made a cameo appearance during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
When asked if the sexual tension between Batman and the Joker was deliberate, Snyder said: “Listen, I think the fun and interesting part of the Joker is that he is also seductive, especially, I think, Jared. [Leto]’s Joker. To have this scene in the movie, because that’s the additional scene that we shot. We did a pickup shot that we needed to get for another scene, and then we did this scene. “
“The why was always like, listen, Zack said, ‘It’s probably my last chance to do this, and I can’t leave this universe without having a Joker / Batman scene.’ And just the story of what those two meant to each other, “he explained.” I think Zack had always wanted to do it, that’s why we always had that Joker card that Batman had. So the card: where did it come from? I think it’s a nice Easter egg. “
“But I think in his performance, there is something that is super creepy, I think, but it is also a kind of seduction and he is playing with all the insecurities,” he continued. “It was really fun to be able to immerse myself in that character, even for a brief moment. I think it goes a long way and it’s really shocking.”
“Even creating his look was a long process of going back and forth, which was also made even more complicated by doing this in the world of COVID, because we sent him a costume truck and asked him to try on some things and then Zack Zoom in. There was a lot of zooming and photos and things like that, but a lot of thought was put into creating the character, “he concluded.
