Just playing The Joker once isn’t enough for Jared Leto. In an exclusive interview with the Toronto Sun, Leto explained that Suicide Squad is just an introduction to the character, and that he hopes he gets to play him a couple of more times.
“I hope it’s an introduction (of the Joker) … and not the end!” Leto said. “Because I could easily just play the Joker a couple more times and then retire. Because it’s so fulfilling and so creative and it’s so imaginative. It’s really difficult to think about doing anything else!”
If you’re expecting an epic Batman/Joker showdown in Suicide Squad… don’t! As Batman News reported back in May, the two characters don’t interact much together. Because of that, Leto really wants to see his Joker go head-to-head with Ben Affleck’s Batman in the future.
“I think it would be incredible to see Batman and the Joker go head-to-head! This Batman and this Joker. I mean, I don’t know, that might be too much! But that would be fun,” Let explained.
Obviously the perfect movie for that to happen in would be Ben Affleck’s upcoming solo Batman movie. With Affleck rumored to be working on the “ultimate Batman story”, you have to have the Joker!
