Suicide Squad is not shying away from showing its goods early on, and we're getting quite a lot of information as production begins to heat up. Shooting hasn't started quite yet, and we probably won't get to see the characters in costume for another couple of weeks. But thanks to a bootleg concert video, we now have a taste of what Jared Leto's Joker voice will sound like.
Before shooting starts on Suicide Squad, Jared Leto has embarked on a national tour with his band 30 Seconds to Mars. During the performance, the actor/singer asks the crowd if they are ready to get 'Crazy!' And this is surely a tease of what his villain the Joker voice will sounds like. It's likely that he is working on the voice while he is on the road, and it's not unusual for an actor to continue practicing leading up to that moment when they step in front of the camera. Jared Leto is also known for his method acting, having won an Academy Award for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club.
This, of course, is most likely a work in progress, but with the haircut, it does give us a good idea what kind of Joker we will see back on the big screen in 2016. It doesn't sound like Jared Leto is straying too far from what previous Jokers Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson and Mark Hamill have done in the past, while still putting his own Leto-like spin on it. Check out the videos, and let us know what you think? We won't know just how good of a Joker he is until he unleashes his maniac, iconic laugh for the first time. But he's pretty convincing telling a fan to 'Shut the f*ck up before I kill you!'
