The latest rumor for The Suicide Squad is that Ryan Gosling wanted to be the Joker after David Ayer started polishing the script. However, he didn’t want to sign a multiple picture deal, so he dropped out.
But maybe that is for the better, because another actor expressed his intention of appearing in the film as the Clown Prince of Crime. And that actor is none other than Jared Leto:
“I do [have my eye on one project.] I am excited about what’s happening. There are incredible opportunities and I’m very grateful for them. I’m looking forward to making films again now that the tour is wrapping up. It’s going to be an exciting 2015. I’ve sworn to keep my mouth shut but I think that very shortly there will be something to talk about, that’s for sure.“
