One of the greatest surprises in the days after WarnerMedia announced that it would be “Releasing the Snyder Cut” is that some extra photos will take place introducing fresh scenes and pieces of video to the four-hour TV show event.
Another great thing about this news was that, among the cast members that originally starred in the film, director Zack Snyder will be taking an actor out of a DC movie he didn’t manage, recruiting Jared Leto to come back as The Joker in the movie.
In a recent interview, Snyder opened up about the place The Joker is going to have in his film, and also revealed that Leto ‘s character would have a different look from how he looked in the 2016 Suicide Squad.
“It is true,” Snyder told Beyond the Trailer with Grace Randolph about the rumor of Jared Leto’s new joker look.
“I wanted to of course honor what had been created with him because I thought it was really cool; but also in this, I’m not going to tell you what happens in the little scene, but some water has gone under the proverbial bridge between when last we saw Joker and this appearance. So he’s made some…he’s a road-weary Joker, I guess that’s a way of saying it.”
He continued, “I will say it was fun having a segment of the band together for this little vignette if you will. Working with Jared was really amazing, his attention to detail, he really cares a lot about it being awesome. It was fun and everyone did an amazing (job). Even trying to shoot in COVID is a bit of a deal but everyone brought like huge A game and really wanted it to be cool, and I couldn’t be happier with what those guys did.
Snyder went on to say that the idea came from a place of the DCU that he loves and which he felt needed to be added to Justice League, confirming this is the only full scene being added as part of the original photography. He also spoke about calling Leto to get him to reprise his role and how the idea came to him while filming Justice League back in 2016.
