Will Jared Leto Be a Better Joker Than Heath Ledger?


'Dallas Buyers Club' Premiere And Vanity Fair Award - The 8th Rome Film Festival

The late Heath Ledger will forever be remembered for his amazing performance as Batman’s ultimate enemy The Joker. So the question is, will there ever be a better portrayal of the legendary villain seen on the movie screen?

If there’s anyone who is able to give Ledger’s Joker a run for his money, then it might just be Jared Leto. We all know that Leto is an immensely talented actor who, just like Ledger, immerse himself when preparing for a role.

Leto will be starring as the Joke in Suicide Squad, which is expected to be released in the summer of 2016. If you’re not familiar with the project, the movie is about a secret government agency that decides to recruit international super-villains into its own ranks and get them out of jail in order to participate in dangerous missions.

The director of the movie, David Ayer, was asked on Twitter about Leto’s performance as the Joker and he responded with one word – majestic. But we’ll have to wait and see if his performance will be able to best Ledger’s.
