Singer and actor Jared Leto is reportedly in talks to play the most iconic villain in the DC Comics universe. He is looking to follow-up his ground breaking role in Dallas Buyers Club, which he won an Oscar Award for, by playing the Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad. There hasn’t been any official confirmation of this but if Leto lands the role, he will follow in the footsteps of the late Heath Ledger, Jack Nicholson and Cesar Romero. All three actors played the manic villain on television and in film. Suicide Squad will be the first DC Comics and Warner Bros. co-venture and is to be directed by David Ayers. The film will follow Zack Snyders’ Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice film release.
