Here's What Jared Leto's Joker Will Look Like

"Do you want to know how I got these tats?" By Brandon Wolfe In celebration of the character’s 75th anniversary, Suicide Squad director David Ayer has tweeted a photo of the Joker as he will be portrayed by Jared Leto . The photo, presenting a tatted-up version of the Clown Prince of Crime, registers something of a shock, as it indicates an extreme reinterpretation of the iconic character, something DC has seemed bent on doing to many of its iconic characters in its bid to craft a cinematic universe of its own. It’s worth mentioning that when images first popped up online of Heath Ledger’s Joker from The Dark Knight , they too seemed to suggest an initially troubling major overhaul of the character’s appearance, with the long, greasy hair and mutilated smile. But Leto’s Joker, with his Juggalo visage, has especially struck many as a needless, tone-deaf modernization of something that didn’t need to be updated, and yet more evidence that Warner Bros' decision t

A Knight’s Tale Series Coming To ABC

A Knight’s Tale , the 2001 feature starring Heath Ledger, is headed to the small screen in a series adaptation written by Battlestar Galactica developer/executive producer Ron Moore. ABC has bought the project, from Sony Pictures TV, with a script commitment. The Knight’s Tale feature was a 14th century romantic adventure set in the world of jousting to a music score of popular rock songs that centered on William Thatcher (Ledger), a peasant posing as a knight.

Hayley Atwell To Star In 10 Things I Hate About You Sequel

It’s been 13 years since Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger dallied with a Shakespearian update in high school comedy 10 Things I Hate About You , but now original director Gil Junger has decided that it’s finally time for a sequel. And he’s recruited Captain America’s Hayley Atwell to star. Junger has also written the script for the new movie, which will advance the situation – though presumably with different characters – into the present day. And the story had a slightly dark genesis, as it was birthed after he read the story of a man who had committed suicide by plunging from a scenic overlook. "It is the story of two relatable, ordinary people with normal jobs and normal desires whose seemingly great lives have become unmanageable," Junger tells Variety. "Two people who go to the same place at the same time to end it. Their chance meeting is so awkward, so raw, and so funny, they postpone their intentions and go their separate ways." There is one other r

The Dark Knight Rises Heath Ledger Rumor

Joker Will Not Appear In "The Dark Knight Rises" Heath Ledger will not appear in The Dark Knight Rises . And we heard it from director Christopher Nolan himself. At an awards season party last night for Inception, we asked the filmmaker about a report on a New Zealand website saying that Nolan and Warner Bros. were thinking of inserting unused footage of Ledger as the Joker into the movie. As with anything connected to Batman and Nolan, the rumor quickly spread around the globe. But Nolan and his wife/producing partner Emma Thomas both swatted down the rumor to Heat Vision in a chat last night. “I heard the rumor,” said Thomas. “We’re not doing that.” Nolan also denied that Ledger would show up in the new film. The script isn’t even completed yet, he said, and Nolan believes that Ledger’s performance as the Joker should be contained to the 2008 movie. Please Leave A Comment- Source- THR
