Jared Leto’s Joker To Be A Boxer In ‘Suicide Squad’

Funko’s Pop Vinyl Figures Reveal That The Joker Is Now A Boxer!

Just when people started being comfortable with the changes to The Joker, this latest news could change all of that.

The gossip for ‘Suicide Squad‘ had slowed down. After the polarizing ‘Batman v Superman‘ and the release of the rival brand’s big summer movie, it seemed like Warner Bros. & DC have taken a bit of a break. Now with the release of the newest Pop Vinyl figures for ‘Suicide Squad‘, we got information to hold us over.

Jared Leto’s Joker performance will show us something we’ve never seen before. The Joker will be a boxer in this film. As briefly speculated after the first trailer, it’s been confirmed that we get a scrappy Clown Prince of Crime.


This explains why The Joker has such a lean & muscular body. With the casting of Jared Leto bringing unneeded hate, his role in this film has become more clear. Unlike classic versions like Cesar Romero and Jack Nicholson or the grungy Heath Ledger rendition, we’ll see this clown throw down.

I guess all those trips to Arkham can change a man.

Does this information change how you feel about ‘Suicide Squad‘?
