Lurking in people's nightmare in their blighted landscape, the Joker in Zack Snyder's new Justice League, as the character will be an entirely new element in the filmmaker's movie where he has decided to complete his original vision of the DC Comics team-up, reports VanityFair.
Played by Jared Leto, the clown prince was not included in Snyder's original plan before he walked away from the movie in 2017, however, when HBO offered the filmmaker to finalise his own cut of the Justice League, he wanted to add a few things in it, including Batman's nemesis.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Snyder said the Joker is the only thing is he thought of in "retrospect." He added that his intention was always to bring Joker into "that world."
Snyder had thought to bring the villain into a conflict with Batman when he first started working on DC movies decades ago. However, he thought he would not be able to implement his idea again after falling out with the studio.
The 54-year-old, however, when was given the opportunity to finish Justice League in his own way, he asked for additional photography to fit Joker into the four-hour event that will release on March 18, reports Vanity Fair.
Leto's Joker would be different than the earlier portrayal as Vanity Fair said the depicting the character is that one has to put their own twist on the monster. Leto has earlier played the part in an entirely different form in David Ayer's Suicide Squad in 2016.
In the new look, Leto is sporting a hospital gown with a surgical mask, in the photos provided by Snyder to Vanity Fair as the director said Joker's look 'is a remnant of his escape into the wild when the world fell.' In another look, Leto is wearing a bulletproof vest with law enforcement badges, which Snyder said are "his trophies."
