Suicide Squad hit theaters late last year, and the acclaim behind it wasâ€¦minimal, to say the least. For the most part, a lot of folks really appreciated the interpretation of Harley Quinn and Deadshot, but viewers really seemed to be split on Jared Letoâ€™s flamboyant take on the Joker.
On the heels of the release of that film, itâ€™s been unclear what the future will hold for the Clown Prince of Crime. Leto was pretty outspoken about how he felt about the movie (in that they cut a whole lot of Joker scenes), and his refusal to adhere to the fine print of his contract â€” which didnâ€™t want him to do anything that could endanger him, thereby potentially limiting the Jokerâ€™s involvement in the future â€” seemed to indicate that perhaps Warner Bros. would lean in a different direction for the Joker. Of course, none of that was based in reality, but weâ€™d be lying if we didnâ€™t wonder what the interest level still was.
Speaking with ET, Leto was asked whether or not heâ€™d be open to hop in on a film with Wonder Woman.
“Oh my god, if I was only so lucky. I saw the film. I loved it. I thought it was incredible. They did such a good job. I watched Wonder Woman as a kid, and I really enjoyed it. We rented out a theater and brought the whole crew. It was really fun. All of us enjoyed it.”
ET then went on to ask a more direct and realistic question â€” his potential involvement with the new Harley Quinn spinoff, Gotham City Sirens.
â€œI have no idea, you know, I canâ€™t confirm â€” maybe I know â€” but I canâ€™t confirm or deny.â€
When the guy first started speaking, it felt like this was a non-story, but in true Leto fashion, he managed to instill a bit of doubt into the whole thing. The question here really is twofold. Is the Joker involved in Gotham City Sirens? Plus, is Warner Bros. committing to Letoâ€™s vision of the character?
Weâ€™ll have to wait and see.
