There has been a lot of theorising over how Jared Leto’s Joker will factor into the upcoming Justice League movie that’s coming from Zack Snyder. Well, it seems as though we won’t have to wait until the movie comes out.
Why, you ask? Because Zack Snyder’s told us how Joker will be involved in the movie, and it sounds pretty interesting. That said, I would have liked this not to have been spoiled for me, so, I will warn you. There are SPOILERS for Zack Snyder’s Justice League coming up.
Zack Snyder explains how Jared Leto’s Joker will be involved in Justice League
“The Joker is really the only thing that I thought of in retrospect,” Snyder told Vanity Fair. “But I will say that it was always my intention to bring Joker into that world.”
So, how will Leto’s Joker appear in Justice League? Well, Snyder confirmed that he will be part of the Knightmare sequence. This will also explain why Batman had a Joker card on his gun in that Knightmare sequel in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Snyder also revealed that Joker will be Batman’s guide into the dark world of what could happen to Earth if the League fails to stop the Knightmare from coming true.
The cool thing about the scene is that it’s Joker talking directly to Batman about Batman. It’s Joker analyzing Batman about who he is and what he is. That’s the thing I also felt like fans deserved from the DC Universe. That is to say, the Jared Leto Joker and the Ben Affleck Batman, they never really got together. It seemed uncool to me that we would make it all the way through this incarnation of Batman and Joker without seeing them come together.
