At this point mostly everyone has had a look at our next iteration of the Clown Faced Killer, The Joker. Jared Leto is the man behind the makeup this time around and initial response was very mixed from Fans. Some complained that they were straying away from what made the Joker great in the first place. With that being said I'm confident in Jared's ability to be a great Joker and here's why!
He is INSANE!.....Literally
We have all heard of actors that go to extreme lengths to get into the mindset of the character they are portraying, but Jared Leto may have went farther then anyone has gone before. Leto supposedly send packages to each one of his Suicide Squad cast mates that contained DEAD RATS! If that isn't crazy enough, He also sent a Dead Hog to the set with a letter addressing the cast and crew. Now, as a vegetarian I tend to stay away from the whole "Dead Animal" thing, but this just shows how Insane Leto is getting just to carry out this role with success.
Just Look at Him!
Jared Leto has the most unique Joker look that we have ever seen. DC seems to be redefining the character in a way that many fans are very skeptical about. Leto definitely has a different take on the character but it may work out for the best. Leto looks very comfortable as The Joker and it seems very Authentic. He seems to be trying to be as natural as possible with the role, which is hard to do when you are playing The joker. I personally am a fan of how Jared looks as the Joker and It is pretty cool to see how they are reinventing a character. At the end of they day he will still be the same Insane Joker, just with a twist.
His Laugh is....Outstanding!
Every Joker has had an iconic laugh, bringing there own twist to the Laugh while still keeping it completely insane. If you view the trailer above, you can hear our first little taste of what Leto's laugh will be like (Laugh is at 2:35). You here an eerie "Haaaaaa Haaaaa" and chills immediately shoot through your body. While we haven't heard what the laugh sounds like in full, we have heard enough to know its going to be pretty awesome! Hopefully this laugh Ranks up there as one of the best ever.
He can be The Joker that this Generation needs.
Every generation has had a Joker to call their own. The older generation had Cesar Romero in the 1966 Batman Series, People of the 80's had Jack Nicholson, and most recently this generation was treated to Heath Ledgers wonderful representation of The Joker that will live on forever. I am very young, and as a Senior in High-school I feel as if Jared Leto could be my generations definitive Joker. Now, nobody will ever top Heath, he is in a class of his own, but Jared Leto could truly define the role and suit it for this generation and generations to come.
Hopefully all Goes Well
At this point, we still have a while until Suicide Squad is released. We just have to wait and see and hope everything goes well. I personally believe in Leto's ability and i Can't wait to see it in Action!
