This just in, 99% of comment on the internet are filled with people who despise creativity and the re-imagining of a fictional character. Why everyone is so fucken negative about Jared Leto’s Joker reveal? Give the guy a break. Let him act first before judging. Jared Leto’s a great actor and I think he could pull this one off. I keep reading comments on the internet saying things like “he’ll never beat Heath Ledger’s Joker”.
I find this funny because when Heath Ledger was cast as the Joker I kept reading comments saying that “he’ll never beat Jack Nicholson’s Joker”. This look is interesting to be sure, but we should wait and see his actual performance before we give a final verdict. There has been so many versions of the joker, from the original suit to the ragged psycho:
Look some things need to change. I don’t want the same joker over and over. You got to let some things go and be open to new changes. The joker can be many things depending on the comic you are reading at the time. That said I am pretty excited for the new Joker and think that in the realm of the specific type of story that this joker is going to kill it in the Suicide Squad. Only time will tell, but it is definitely way too early to judge based off a single image.
