Those who follow Jared Leto on social media got a big surprise earlier this week, when the actor revealed two new photos getting back into his Joker character, with the green hair and white face paint. Some thought that there might be more reshoots for Suicide Squad, or that he was shooting the Justice League movie in London, but a recent tweet stating he just arrived in Miami shuts down that theory. Instead, we have word that he was living back inside his Joker persona to shoot a Suicide Squad music video with Skrillex and Rick Ross.
Batman-News' sources claim that the music video shoot happened in Miami this week, and while the song's title isn't known quite yet, the track will be featured as part of the Suicide Squad soundtrack. The song actually debuted during a Skrillex/Rick Ross performance at WAV Nightclub in Atlantic City back in April, and while it's hard to discern most of the lyrics in the YouTube video below, you can hear references to Suicide Squad, Gotham City, Killer Croc and a "purple Lamborghini," referencing The Joker's car, which is actually a custom-made Vaydor 35.
It isn't known if any of the other Suicide Squad cast members were brought in for this music video shoot, or when it may actually debut. This news comes as the studio seems to be ramping up their promotional campaign for this comic book adaptation. Just a few days ago, we showed you a prequel comic book that debuted with a "brand of hair dye," and we also recently showed you a promo video that introduces Task Force X as if they were a soccer team, in conjunction with the Euro 2016 team announcements.
It feels good to be bad... Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?
It was also recently reported that Warner Bros. is planning a spinoff for Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, with another report claiming that The Joker and Captain Boomerang spinoffs are in the works. Of course, those will likely depend on how well Suicide Squad fares at the box office when it hits theaters August 5. While we wait for more on the movie and this upcoming music video, take a look at Jared Leto's recent Joker photos, along with a video of this untitled Suicide Squad song, performed live in Atlantic City.
