There have been so many theories on how Jared Leto’s Joker will factor into Zack Snyder’s Justice League. I’ve heard rumours that we might get to see how Leto’s Joker killed Jason Todd – aka Robin – in the DCEU. However, it sounds like it’ll be a scene in which Batman and Joker talk.
I like this idea and Zack Snyder elaborated on this scene during his recent interview with Vanity Fair. Check out what Snyder revealed below.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut will have a scene between Batman and Joker
“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.
