Yesterday we got our first look at Jared Leto’s new Joker haircut for Suicide Squad, and now we have what could be the first details about the character.

“Jared wants to make sure his Joker is not only something the fans will love, but he doesn’t want to step on the toes of Jack Nicholson or Heath Ledger,” an insider tells Hollywood Life.

Hollywood Life’s source went into more detail:

“He wants to make the character completely his own. He knows that this role may be his most difficult ever, but he is confident that he will make his version of the Joker the best. This Joker will be more cerebral and comedic than what we have seen before, nobody should expect a copycat version. It’s going to be awesome!”

Despite the name, Hollywood Life isn’t just another tabloid magazine. It’s actually owned by the same company that owns Variety and Deadline. That’s not to say they’re as reliable, but this is definitely a rumor worth talking about.
