Director Zack Snyder confirmed the presence of Jared Leto in the new version of Justice League (2017), which will be released on HBO Max. In a photo published on social networks this Tuesday (2), the filmmaker showed a glimpse of the new look of the actor as the villain Joker in the feature.
Leto’s presence on the popular Snyder’s Cut had already been announced by the specialized press in October 2020, but the director confirmed the information just now.
With the presence of the Joker, the new version of the film that brings together the team of DC heroes marks Leto’s second appearance as the classic Batman villain in theaters. He debuted as the character in the criticized Suicide Squad (2016) and was left out of the studio’s last titles.
Oscar winner, the actor is not the only one to return in the new Justice League without having appeared in the original version that went to theaters. Joe Manganiello, who lived the Terminator only in the post-credits scene for the feature, is also expected in Snyder’s film.
The presence of the duo, as well as the filming of additional scenes with Ben Affleck and the rest of the original cast, suggest a lot of new material in the version that will go to streaming.
The Justice League Snyder’s Cut is scheduled to launch on March 18, 2021. See below the first photo of Jared Leto as the Joker in the film:
Amazing character you created. Honored to have our worlds collide.
