Jared Leto’s Joker was not in Justice League’s plans

Although it has already been confirmed that Jared Leto’s Joker will be part of Zack Snyder’s version, the reality is that the character was not part of the Justice League plans.

Jared Leto’s Joker is certainly not a crowd favorite. After his poor performance in Suicide Squad, the actor was not received with open arms by fans. Due to this outcome, Warner decided to close the doors. However, weeks ago it was revealed that he will have a guest appearance in Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League. During a recent interview with TheFilmJunkee, the director revealed that this Joker was never intended for his original movie story, but that he is excited about this change.

“No. No, it wasn’t. There were some things he had thought to do. There were several things that I had drawn, I couldn’t do a couple of them, but it’s okay. I am completely satisfied. But this was one of the things that over the years I thought would be a great thing to do. I’ll be honest, I never thought the opportunity would come, and thanks to the fans, of course, and all this trip, it happened, which is crazy. “ Zack Snyder commented on the participation of Jared Leto’s Joker in his version of Justice League, which will arrive in 2021 on HBO Max.

Why was it incorporated into history?

As it turned out, the idea of ​​including Jared Leto’s Joker in this version of Justice League was Zack Snyder himself. After a few years of the premiere of the film, the director began to rethink this idea that is now a reality. This will be Jared Leto’s chance to win the hearts of fans, who don’t care much for the actor’s performance after passing through Suicide Squad.

For the past few months, Zack Snyder worked really hard to bring us a great version of his Justice League. At the moment, not much information is known about what direction the plot is going to take but fans are waiting very eagerly. What is known is that material removed from Joss Whedon’s version will be used, as well as new scenes in the company of the actors we know. We will also see our favorite characters return and if we are lucky, a movie that hopes to exceed all expectations.
