Here are five facts to know about The Joker, who will be portrayed by Oscar-winning actor, Jared Leto:
His Scary Appearance
Unlike the Jokers before him (portrayed by Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger) Jared Leto’s Joker is eerily cartoonish, with red lipstick, tattoos, tons of jewellery, shiny blazers and bright lime green hair. According to his costars, Jared Leto is rumored to have stayed in character on set, all throughout the shooting of the movie. He was even known to pranks on his cast members throughout the entire production!
His Skin is Bleached White
Unlike his predecessors, Jared Leto’s Joker skin is bleached white, implying that he had some unfortunate incident with a chemical reactant. According to the comics, the Joker’s backstory is that he fell into a vat full of chemicals.
For the first time in the history of DC comics, Harley Quinn is being portrayed on the silver screen by none other than the gorgeous Australian actress, Margot Robbie. She is known by her fan following for her undying devotion to the evil genius, The Joker.
He Has a Creepy Permanent Grin
Jared Leto’s Joker has been shown to have metal teeth, unlike his character in the much-loved comic books. The justification for this development is that the Joker has been punched several times in the face by his arch-nemesis Batman. He is also well-known for his distinguished mocking laugh.
He Murdered Robin
Fans of the franchise arrived at the conclusion that the Clown Prince of Crime brutally killed Batman’s sidekick Robin, The Boy Wonder. The last actor who played Robin (Jason Todd) was shown to be beaten up with a crowbar and left to die in a warehouse explosion by the Joker. The movie is allegedly said to end with the Joker going on a brutal killing spree. With Jared Leto getting so involved in his character on set, the producers of the film hired on-set therapists to help the cast deal with their dark characters.
