BREAKING NEWS: Jared Leto, the world's prettiest 42 year old man, might be playing The Joker in a movie that might be happening, maybe.
According to /film, he's being considered for a role in DC's upcoming Suicide Squad film, and that role might be the Joker, possibly (maybe). I mean, no one really knows what characters are in the Suicide Squad film, or if it's even really happening. I mean, yeah, DC announced it, but Sony sure did announce a Sinister Six movie that's no longer happening, so who knows? They already have talked about maybe Will Smith and Tom Hardy will be in it, but there's no follow-up, so this all is probably just random guessing and second-hand rumors being regurgitated on the internet because people will click on anything superhero-related.
Mainly, the point of this is that we put a recognizable actor's name alongside the most popular comic book villain name in history, and that's clickable as hell, right? Like, this information could be COMPLETELY wrong, but because it's just being presented as a potential rumor, there's no actual accountability or anything here. Like, we could just say Jennifer Lawrence is gonna be Poison Ivy. Oh god, we should totally do that. Like, this MIGHT be the cast. You can't prove it isn't!
Anyways, here's an EXCLUSIVE PICTURE of what Jared Leto might look like as The Joker, maybe?
