After last appearing in Suicide Squad and being replaced by Joaquin Phoenix, it looks like Jared Leto will once again return to play the Joker to reprise his role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League for HBO Max.
Leto famously played a very different version of the Clown Prince of Crime from what fans were used to, though the scenes in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad were mostly cut out of the final picture. Now he’ll play opposite Ben Affleck’s Batman once again, giving fans another opportunity to see what could have been had this duo remained a fixture of Warner Bros. big screen plans.
According to a new report from The Hollywood Reporter, Leto will play Joker in reshoots for Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
This possibly will tie in Ayer’s take on Suicide Squad, which Zack and Deborah Snyder produced and was meant to build off the events in Justice League before both movies were affected by studio interference.
