The Clown Prince Of Crime, Joker, is one of the most iconic characters ever written and performed in cinema. Every actor who dared to enter it came out gloriously with many accolades. With that, they added their little pieces by making him theirs. The same goes with Jared Leto, who created storms of excitement when it was announced that he was playing Batman’s nemesis in Justice League: Director’s Cut (read Snyder here). The recent update has a new kid to offer and it’s here to get us even more excited.
We already know that Zack Snyder is making every effort to make his Justice League Cup a magnum opus that stays true to the standards set in the minds of millions of fans. Jared Leto’s casting as Joker came as big news, but a bit skeptical too. Whereas his version of the Clown Prince was not received as warmly as the others. But it looks like Leto is considering making it work this time around anyway.
According to a report in We Got This Covered, it is said that Jared Leto wants to take Joker’s grays a notch higher and darker. If insider Daniel Richtman is to be believed, Leto wants to make Joker as abusive and psychopathic as possible. He wants to explore the iterations of the comics that haven’t been touched so far. Although there is no confirmation if this is true, but the chances are high as Zack Snyder has previously stated that the film could be rated R.
Speaking of Justice League’s R-Rating: Director’s Cut to EW, Zack Snyder said, “Here’s a piece of information no one knows: the movie is crazy and so epic and is probably rated R – that’s one thing I think. will happen, that it will be an R-rated version, that’s for sure. We haven’t heard of the MPAA, but it’s my gut feeling.
“There’s a scene where Batman drops an F-bomb. Cyborg isn’t too happy with what’s going on in his life before he meets the Justice League, and he tends to say what he thinks. And Steppenwolf only hacks people in half. So [the rating would be due to] violence and blasphemy, probably both, ”Snyder added.
