Following the very impressive and now iconic performance from Heath Ledger in the role of The Joker in The Dark Knight, people have been talking about which actor has the ability to step into those shows and take on the character in the near future. Well, following the news that a Suicide Squad movie is being made, many people have been suggesting that we will see The Joker making an appearance in the film, which has led to rumours about which actor should play the role.
One actors name that has continually been linked to the role of The Joker, is none other than the hugely talented Jared Leto and it looks like it could actually be a done deal. As we have seen over the years, when an actor refuses to comment on whether they are going to play a certain role, it tends to mean that they are. Just take a look at Paul Rudd before he was confirmed as Ant-Man, as well as Jason Momoa prior to the announcement who was playing Aquaman.
Well, following the constant rumours about being cast as The Joker, Jared Leto was recently asked whether there was any actual truth in them, to which he simply responded, "I've sworn to keep my mouth shut." This has led to many people claiming that it is a sign that he is definitely in talks over the role, with some even insisting that it must mean he has already signed on to the project.
With that said, it could well be some time before we do actually get an official announcement about the casting of The Joker but we would not be surprised if it was Jared Leto in the role. What do you think?
