Suicide Squad is currently in production, and as a result of that I’ve seen many amateur photos of the set, specifically of Jared Leto as The Joker. Just last week director David Ayer released an official image of The Joker. For the most part I liked this new take on the character, with the light green hair, tattoos, and metal teeth. The dude looked like he belongs in a straight jacket.
Reports on Suicide Squad have mentioned that The Joker will have a smaller role than many of the ensemble cast members. There was also a rumor that mentioned Ben Affleck making a cameo near the end of Suicide Squad. Given that both characters will already be established and a solo Batman film has been rumored for 2019, this cameo makes sense as far as setting up the future. A photo taken from the set of Suicide Squad reveals Affleck present during production.
Speculations on the visit include the actor/filmmaker meeting with Ayer, and several cast members. Its a very possibility that Affleck could direct one of the planned DC films (The Batman?), so this could be all business. That being said, I’d say expect to see Bruce Wayne/Batman make a cameo in Suicide Squad.
Elsewhere, Jared Leto has taken to social media once again. This time to show off his efforts at the gym. The actor has previously teased gaining weight for the role, and it looks like he’s done just that. Further proving this version of The Joker will be Frank Miller inspired.
