News: Leto to take on legendary Ledger

Rumour has it DC will be expanding their cinematic universe with the Suicide Squad.

The film, which is suspected to revolve around a group of Supervillians who take on black op missions in exchange for shorter prison sentences, will feature numerous DC villains including The Joker and Harley Quinn.

The rumour-mill churned out the news that Cara Delevingne was in talks for the role of Harley Quinn but now it appears Wolf of Wall Street’s Margot Robbie will be taking on the role.

Meanwhile, it appears that 30 Seconds to Mars frontman and Oscar winner Jared Leto will be getting to grips with the Joker.

While Margot Robbie seems to suit the role of Harley with her shock of blonde hair and ability to totter around in sky-high heels, Jared Leto is a less obvious choice.

Having seen Dallas Buyers Club, it is clear that Leto throws himself into any role presented to him, and so he could potentially be a fantastic Joker. Anyone who has seen some of his Instagram posts will know he can pull off the crazed eyes and maniacal smile quite easily. However, playing the first Joker after the legendary performance from Heath Ledger will not be an easy act to follow. No matter how good he will be, Leto will forever be compared to what is considered the best Joker ever.

He has some big clown shoes to fill.
