Hollywood actor Jared Leto is all set to reprise the iconic character Joker. As per several reports, the actor might play the role of filmmaker Zack Snyder’s reshoots of the 2017 DC superhero movie, Justice League. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jared Leto who infamously played the role of the Batman villain in 2016’s Suicide Squad, is joining the new Justice League.
Streaming giant HBO Max is financing the new rounds of shooting for Zack Snyder’s Justice League. This will reportedly air as a four-episode event series next year.
However, the film’s shooting is currently underway, and many actors like Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, and Amber Heard. The news that Leto will feature in Zack Snyder’s Justice League is also perplexing in a larger sense, given that Leto was never slated to appear in any of the original versions of the Justice League.

Meanwhile, some other media houses claim that Leto’s role in the film is not confirmed and the featuring report is just a speculation.
Notably, the first trailer for the new cut of the film teased the Clown Prince of Crime. And a Joker card could briefly insert across the screen. Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” is scheduled to debut on HBO Max in 2021.
