Jared Leto’s Joker pulls off a controversial Jesus Christ pose in the latest image from Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Jared Leto’s Joker poses as Jesus Christ in a new image from Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Joss Whedon failed to capture the heart of fans with a dark and gritty comic book film. Fans begging to release the Snyder Cut. This led Warner Bros. to letting original director Snyder put together his own version of Justice League.
Set to release on HBO Max on March 18, 2021, Snyder’s Justice League promises to be a very different experience than the theatrical version of the film. A big reason for this is the somewhat surprising addition of Leto’s take on classic Batman villain the Joker. Leto, of course was notoriously criticized for his take on Joker in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Nevertheless, Snyder elected to give Leto another chance at playing the character in his version of Justice League. Fans have had a small taste of what the film will be. The anticipation is building up for what his Joker will add to the mix in what many fans consider to be the “real” Justice League movie.
As part of Vanity Fair‘s comprehensive new article breaking down the tortured history of the Snyder Cut, fans have been given another look at Leto’s Justice League Joker, and there’s a definite Biblical quality to the latest image which can be seen above.
With the release of the trailer and this photo, I’m more interested in seeing how this will play out. I’m not familiar with this comic book storyline. However, I hope we do get to see more of Leto in the film. I am hoping that its not just what we see in the trailer and photo. Its becoming more intriguing to me. However, I do feel this will be Leto’s redemption.
What are you thoughts? Do you think Jared Leto will get his redemption?
