What’s all the fuzz with this new actor to portrait a legend, a well-known insane legend? Its history; it goes back to the 1950s when the DC universe creators decided to give the Arkham knight a great and beloved enemy. Former Hollywood star Heath Ledger was the last one to portrait this great fictional character known as the Joker. His dark, mixed with sparkles of greatness, performance blessed ledger with an academy award. He portrayed a joker known as the anarchist, a man with no desire to follow any government. Now an already academy award actor is going to incarnate this supervillain. Is he going to live up to his predecessors?
Jack Nicholson, another awarded superstar, had the luck to interpret this dynamic character. His iconic interpretation of the joker awarded Nicholson with many job proposals and a centenary of people cheering his name. After many years, everyone still remembers the mafia boss vibe that Jack gave to the Batman enemy, and still say that it’s one of the greatest interpretations of the joker.
Jared Leto, an actor known for his famous performance of a travesty in Dallas Buyers Club, is going to act the part of a new psychotic Joker. The decision of the creators of the new Suicide Squad movie to cast Jared as a new Joker has been scrutinized. But he has amazed us with some great performance. Now we would just have to wait until 2016 to see if Leto can bring his insanity touch to this new Joker.
As we speak now DC comics is bringing back to life a lost franchise of “heroes” if you could say so. Suicide squad is a new movie said to be released by 2016; the concept is basically the supervillains helping the government by going on suicide missions. The team is composed of villains, and in it the master mind,is the Joker. It’s been said that the Joker would have scarce screen time but still will have a major role. This Joker that we are going to see is going to be behind bars in the psychic ward for the mentally unstable. So we can say that Jared Leto is going to play the part of a maniac mastermind. Even though they say that we are not going to see much of this crazy clown let’s hope this is not true because we really hope to see a new psychotic character come to life. Let’s just hope that for Leto, the character stays in fiction and does not come to life as it did with Heath Ledger. We will just have to wait till 2016!
