Leto will be playing the iconic Batman villain in the DC Suicide Squad movie, which comes out next year.

While Leto is known for dropping weight for his Oscar-award winning role in Dallas Buyer’s Club, Leto lets it be known he is gaining weight for the Joker.

“Do you mind if I eat a little?” Leto asked during the interview, with it noted Leto is eating vegan tacos. “I’m trying to gain a lot of weight. It means I have to eat every couple of hours — and I’m terrible at eating a lot.”

Leto continues with talk about the Joker.

New Joker Jared Leto Says Batman Is Dead?!


2016 will see the new Joker, played by Jared Leto, in the Suicide Squad movie.

It’s not been confirmed the movie will feature Batman, but Joker is already up to his old tricks.

While participaing in a chat on Vyrt, a fan mentioned that Batman was an unseen hero.

Leto’s reply to the fan?

“Batman is dead.”

Obviously, Jared Leto doesn’t mean Batman is really dead, but more than likely Leto is just talking smack meaning that there is a new Joker in town.

New Batman Ben Affleck debuts in Batman Vs. Superman, which hits March 25, 2016. Suicide Squad featuring Jared Leto as the Joker hits five months later. I wonder if Zack Snyder will reference Joker in Batman Vs. Superman?

Tom Hardy Left Suicide Squad Because Of The Script


When Warner Bros. officially announced the cast of the Suicide Squad movie maybe red flags should have gone up as how is the movie going to find the time to accommodate all the actors with enough screentime?

Well, that seems to be exactly the problem as recently it became known that Tom Hardy had dropped out of Suicide Squad.

While scheduling issues were cited as the reason, now it’s being said that Tom Hardy wasn’t happy with the script and screentime.

According to Latino Review, when Tom Hardy signed on to Suicide Squad, he had yet to read the script.

However, once the full cast officially came together, it’s said the script was tweaked to given Will Smith and Jared Leto more screentime.

So when Tom Hardy finally got ahold of the finished script and saw what he perceived as not enough screentime for his character, Rick Flagg, he bailed.

With Tom Hardy out of the picture, Jake Gyllenhall had said to be a potential replacement.

Suicide Squad has an August 6, 2016 release directed by David Ayer starring Jared Leto as The Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Jesse Eisenberg is rumored to follow his Batman vs. Superman debut as Lex Luthor.
