Suicide Squad: The Joker ain’t no joke, girlfriend Harley Quinn is just as crazy

Jared Leto and Margot Robbie make a creepy couple.

Jared Leto’s Joker is eerily different.

Mass Appeal Wire Reports

LOS ANGELES — Jared Leto is probably taking this Joker thing too far. Look, there’s nothing wrong with depicting a sociopath on screen. A job’s a job. But in real life? The Suicide Squad actor has apparently lost his mind [on purpose] in an effort to portray a darker, more diabolical side of the iconic character made famous by Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger in previous superhero films. Leto even met with psychiatrists and a few of their most demented patients to gain an understanding of the psychotic mindset.

“You’re kind of walking upon hallowed ground, and it deserves the very best that you can do,” said the 44-year-old Oscar winner. “It takes over your life and that’s what I needed to do for myself.” For what it’s worth, Leto scared the hell out of his co-stars. He reportedly sent a live rat to Margot Robbie (who plays girlfriend Harley Quinn) and a dead hog to the rest of the cast.

Leto also gave his co-stars parting gifts which included a boxful of nudie mags, a switchblade, a dildo and, yes, a used condom. “You don’t know what the Joker is going to do next; you never do,” he explained. “It was intoxicating to have no rules.”

Leto’s methods are so unconventional, he had director David Ayer stressed. “As an actor, he’s flinging himself into the abyss on that one,” says Ayer in reference to the dead hog incident. “And he was scary on set. He was intimidating. He’d show up and it was like, ‘Dude, you are fucking creepy.’”

Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5th.

  16. Captain Bud Sturguess

    I don’t care what anyone says: the Penguin is my favorite Batman villain! Why isn’t he in “Suicide Squad?!” Just because he can’t…run…or…really do anything…he’s still awesome! If my psyche was a person, it would look like Danny DeVito as the Penguin. The Penguin is gangsta!

  17. Betweem all the hype of Joker,Harley and all, most people forget that fucking KILLER CROC is in this movie.

  18. i have never been so fucking keen for a movie before

  19. Kermit The Frog

    1. Harley
    2. Slipknot (for the time he is alive)
    3. Deadshot
    4. Captain Boomerang
    5. Diablo
    6. Croc
    7. Rick
    8. Katanna

  20. Hate the fact that will smith is in this movie but I’m still gonna watch it

  21. yandere “TaeTae's tongue” chaȵ

    Jared Leto as Joker is the hOTTEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MAH LIFE

  22. I have always been oddly attracted to The Joker, I understand Harley’s obsession…. and now Jared leto plays him?. I now love The Joker even more.

  23. Claytonwhitepower bigsby

    i think leto is gonna be a good joker ..he will play his part well

  24. Leto and Robbie are cool…. I just hope Will Smith does his part.

  25. i feel like this movie will be either very good or very bad. no in-between (i think it will be good though)

  26. I can see Marilyn Manson making a killer Joker.

  27. Gonna watch this movie only because of Will Smith.

  28. Carlos the Great

    Nobody will ever play the Joker like Heath Ledger. Nobody.

  29. Leto has some big shoes to fill. Heath Ledger was the best Joker ever.

  30. What’s that I should kill everyone and escape? Sorry, the voices… I’m kidding, That’s not what they really said…

    Dear Jared Leto haters ,
    Why are you hating Jared Leto’s joker? Is it because he looks different? Because it’s not Heath ledger (RIP)?
    Is popular to hate on Jared’s joker?First and for most just because joker looks different shouldn’t have any impact on the performance of the joker .The new joker looks REALLY cool. Plus of course Jared isn’t going to have the same performance as Heath because he’s not Heath . Heath was an amazing joker . I grew up on his version of the joker,but come on . You’re not even Giving Jared a chance ,really. Nobody can play heaths joker the way Heath does so stop . Give Jared a fair chance. Look at all his scenes and clips so far. It’s psychotic , intense and funny. Just like the joker . Jared will not be Heath doesn’t mean he won’t be an amazing joker . From what I can see Jared maybe my favorite joker,but I haven’t seen the movie yet and so have some of you guys ,judging him before you even seen his performance.If you’ve seen it,then you have your opinions

  32. Can someone tell me why the reviews are so bad? Like it can’t be that bad…

  33. EXPECTATION:
    This movie’s gonna win 5 oscars. Everyone looks effin’ amazing in character. Jai Courtney has totally redeemed himself as an actor and will finally break the curse of being a franchise-killer once and for all. Jared Leto is the best Joker ever.

    REALITY:
    Awww shit…..34% on RottenTomatoes.

  34. I really am losing my temper with these fuckin critics and their websites. They are putting people of going to see a movie they’ve been looking forward to for ages by giving these films underserved stick! They did it with BvS and now this… Are they being paid off by Marvel cause they seem to get praise left, right and centre!!??

  35. Fuckin tease. I want my money back.

  36. so at 1st when the movie started I was like scared because of the reviews but in the end the critics got proven wrong, this movie was amazing and those scenes which they complained about got taken off the movie
