Zack Snyder’s Justice League is now available on HBO Max, and with it comes a variety of characters that were left out of the previous version. One such character is The Joker, as played by actor Jared Leto. Although the actor was completely absent from the original release of the film, Zack Snyder’s Justice League used Jared Leto’s Joker during the infamous “Knightmare” sequence. Interestingly, his take on the Joker says a very popular line in Batman fandom – “We Live in a Society.”
The line has been made popular over the years from a vast amount of memes and parodies. As such, it was a humorous surprise for DC fans to see in the promotional material for Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Unfortunately, the “We Live in a Society” line wasn’t actually stated by the Joker in the full film. Now, however, Zack Snyder has actually released the full scene. And yes, you can see Joker say the iconic line in all of its glory. Check it out for yourself in the video down below:
As you can see, it’s a fun little scene, one in which Jared Leto gets to share some screen time with actor Ben Affleck who reprised his role as Batman. Initially, the “Knightmare” sequence was intended to build lore for the Justice League sequels that Zack Snyder would have made. However, these sequels are currently not in any kind of development. Warner Bros made clear that they only wanted Zack Snyder to release his cut of Justice League, and that was it.
Nevertheless, they also once stated his cut of Justice League would never be released. So there’s always the possibility with the current #RestoreTheSnyderVerse movement. Of course, only time will tell what will happen on that front.
In the meantime, at least we can appreciate how hilariously awesome it is that Jared Leto got the opportunity to say the golden Joker line – “We Live in a Society.” It’s a moment that should be meme worthy of itself.
