Have you ever danced with Jared Leto in the pale moonlight? Although 2017’s Justice League didn’t prominently feature Jared Leto’s Suicide Squad version of the Joker, he is nonetheless back for the impending 2021 new-version of Justice League — Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Which no, isn’t actually in black and white, though you really think it is, right?
Although we all just collectively got over the hypothetical threat of Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker causing violence in the streets (turns out we confused him with the Joker who was the president before Biden) it looks like we’re going to have to prepare ourselves for the angsty, emo, Leto version of the Joker all over again?
Was Jared Leto the worst Joker of all time? Yes. Does that mean he’ll remain the worst Joker of all time after the release of the #SnyderCut? Actually, maybe not? Being the worst Joker of all time doesn’t mean you didn’t anything wrong per see, it’s just that he wasn’t better than Ceasar Romero, Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill, or Heath Ledger. In fairness, if you were just ranking actors, it would be hard for Jared Leto to beat any of those guys. He’s pretty good in pretty much everything else (including Blade Runner 2049) and I hate to admit I kind of like his band.
