Jared Leto's Joker is very disturbing and creepy, which is why he looks to be a promising Clown Prince of Crime.
It seems to be the trending thing to throw everything into an acting role, even if it drives you completely mad. Jared Leto is no exception; his methods are...unusual and pretty creepy. Don't believe me? Here's some of the most disturbing facts about Jared Leto's Joker.
He's Going To Murder A Kid
Does the name Jason Todd ring a bell? In the comics, The Joker beat young Robin (Jason Todd) with a crowbar until he was mostly dead, and then left Robin to die in a warehouse explosion.
Rumor has it that Jared Leto's Joker will have either killed or will kill Robin in Batman vs Superman in the exact same way he kills Robin in the comics. Talk about a brutal, agonizing death scene! Commissioner Gordon may not even be around either, since the Joker probably will have killed him too. So yeah...this isn't just a pencil magic trick. This is a downright bloodthirsty, dark Clown Prince of Crime.
He, Along With The Cast, Needed A Therapist
Adam Beach who plays Slipknot in Suicide Squad said in an interview: "[David Ayer] wants you to torment yourself. He wants the real thing", and "He wants to make sure we finish a movie and don't disappear somewhere and then don't show up for work."
There's rumors that Heath Ledger's fatal drug overdose was caused because of the extremely committed acting methods Heath used to play the Joker in The Dark Knight. It could be Warner Bros. is scared of that happening again, which is why the got a therapist. In any case, Jared Leto's joker apparently is so dark and twisted that the entire cast has needed some therapy. The question is will we need one after Suicide Squad?
Jared Leto Has Stayed In Character On Set
Jared Leto scares his co-stars because of his devotion to the Joker. He's staying in character on set, no matter where he goes or who he talks too. It can't be easy for him, but he's doing it according to Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang). He's supposedly creeping out every one of his co-stars, which a great sign of a great Joker. This is probably another reason why the cast needs a therapist; because who wants to hang out with the Joker all day?
He Sent Margot Robbie A Rat And A Love Letter
The Joker and Harley Quinn are extremely famous for being partners in crime, and Suicide Squad nailed the casting. Margot Robbie will be an amazing Harley Quinn, the perfect amount of sarcasm, sexiness, and sass.
So it's only fitting for Jared Leto to prepare his Joker for his villainous love for Harley Quinn. That's why he sent Margot Robbie a love letter, written while he was in character as the Joker. Then he sent Margot a live rat, which may or may not have terrified Margot. Margot should be thanking her lucking stars for only getting a rat, because the rest of the cast got something much worse.
He Gave The Rest of The Cast A Hog Carcass
I really, honestly can't imagine what the other Suicide Squad cast members thought when they received a dead pig in the mail. That's really nasty, and yet really fitting for Jared Leto's role as the Joker.
He also sent them letters, in character as the Joker, and sent Will Smith (Deadshot) a box of bullets. This is exactly the type of stuff that makes me terrified and excited to see the new Joker; the new Joker is going to be one-hundred percent deranged and insane.
He's Abusive Towards Harley Quinn
The Joker and Harley Quinn hold the gold medal for weirdest love relationship of any couple ever. She pulls a gun out on him, probably because he's mocking her or something, and then it's rumored he slaps her really, really hard. He then leaves her on the ground and drives off.
The Suicide Squad is definitely going to take a dark spin on The Joker and Harley Quinn's relationship. It's rumored she leaves him after he murders Robin, but then she joins up with him again in the end. It's confusing. Love is confusing, especially the Joker's kind of love. In any case, expect a dark, brutal relationship between the Joker and Harley Quinn...one that could be upsetting in every manner.
He'll Go On A Killing Spree At The End Of The Movie
Rumor has it that the Joker is going to go on a major killing spree at the end of Suicide Squad. Because who doesn't want a superhero movie to end with a bunch of blood, gore, death, and insanity?
Yes, he'll be caged for most of Suicide Squad; but expect him to make a grandiose, terrible entry near the end of the movie. He's DC's biggest weapon - much like Tony Stark/Iron Man. He's the money maker. So it's only logical that the Joker is going to be leave us gasping for breathe and shaking at the end of The Suicide Squad.
Yes... Jared Leto's Joker is going to be pretty messed up, insane, deranged, bloodthirsty, and brutal. Get ready for it or else you might find yourself feeling like you were beaten with a crowbar too.
