Leto had put a lot of effort into his Suicide Squad version of the DC villain. He had rotting teeth, bloodshot eyes, and slicked-back neon green hair. He spent months getting into the dark character and terrifying his castmates. In the last few weeks, reports suggest that Jared Leto was upset in finding out that Warner Bros. was planing for a standalone Joker movie without his involvement, and Leto’s Joker making a comeback has never seemed slimmer. Joker is the highest-grossing R rated film to hit the theaters and is being expected to keep its top spot even after a few weeks off. Leto’s sources said that the actor is still happily working with Warner Bros. and he’s currently shooting John Lee Hancock’s Little Things.
