Jared Leto seems to really be having fun with his role as The Joker in DC/Warner’s upcoming Suicide Squad film. Director David Ayer posted a photo to Instagram last week with Leto doing his best Killing Joke impression, and now, Leto himself has posted this photo to photo/messaging app, Snapchat. The Italian language movie website, BadTaste, brings the photo to our attention, with Leto sporting green hair just as before, with added Clown Prince of Crime appropriate make-up.
Suicide Squad, coming out August 5th, 2016, also stars Will Smith (Deadshot); Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg); Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn); Jai Courtney (Boomerang); Cara Delevingne (Enchantress); Viola Davis (Amanda Waller); Jay Hernandez, Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag).
In other news, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is growing. We know the how, but the who is being kept secret. The EW is reporting that 12 Years a Slave writer/producer, Oscar-winner John Ridley, is developing a new series for ABC starring a mystery hero. EW’s source reports that the new show “involves reinventing an existing Marvel superhero character or property”, but do not reveal who.
I have yet to see 12 Years a Slave, but was a huge fan of Ridley’s The American Way comic series, and slightly less so The Authority: Human on the Inside, so I can’t wait to hear more about this new series joining Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, and the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off.
