Jared Leto Will Not Appear As The Joker In ‘Justice League’

After his small appearance in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, fans have been hoping that Jared Leto would reprise the role of the Joker in Justice League. But we might have to wait a while before we see The Joker again.

After a rumour sparked that Jared Leto will head to Iceland, where Justice League will briefly shoot, The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez confirmed that the actor will not appear in Zack Snyder’s follow-up to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. 

The Joker

Just because Jared Leto isn’t filming in Iceland doesn’t mean he won’t appear in Justice League. We’ve seen recently that Warner Bros. isn’t afraid to throw multiple characters into upcoming movies as a set-up for later. If Jared Leto’s Joker will appear in Ben Affleck’s Batman movie, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him in an after credits scene for Justice League. 

“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.  Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.  But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”

Personally, I would love to see Jared Leto make a small appearance as The Joker in Justice League. The actor wasn’t given a fair chance to prove himself in Suicide Squad, and I believe he has what it takes to be a great version of Joker.
