There’s been a lot of articles floating around the internet recently regarding the DCEU and who may or may not be dropping out of it. Over the past week, there have been rumors that Ben Affleck and/or Jessie Eisenberg, and/or Jared Leto might have uncertain futures in The DCEU.
Time will tell if any of these articles are true or not but actor Jared Leto (who played The Joker in Suicide Squad) went on the Australian radio show Kyle and Jackie O this week to confirm that any talk of his departure from the role is a non-story.
When asked by the hosts whether he was done playing The Joker, he responded by saying:
“No, there’s so much hype and bullsh– about that, I think it’s just fun thing to talk about. Even when [Suicide Squad] came out, there was so much misrepresentation about what went down, about the method acting crap. It’s just that 90% of it was not even true. It just takes on a life of its own.
[Filming Suicide Squad] was an incredible experience, everyone was amazing. Margot Robbie [is] one of the nicest people and one of the best actresses I’ve ever worked with. I really loved working with her.
I thought the scenes we did together were some of the most fun I’ve ever had on a set before. But everything is great in that world and I’m really proud to be a part of it.”
There you go kids! Looks like Leto is here to stay! Yay?
