Jared Leto Returning to Play Joker in Zack Snyder’s Justice League

What's interesting about this is that not only was Jared Leto's Joker nowhere to be seen in the theatrical version of Justice League, but there was never any word about him appearing in Zack Snyder's version of the movie.

THR announced the news that Leto will be back as the Clown Prince Of Crime from David Ayer's Suicide Squad movie as Leto will be filming additional scenes for the Snyder Cut, as Zack is now shooting additional scenes for the HBO Max four-part event series.

As per reports, Jared Leto will reprise his role after 2016's Suicide Squad.

Justice League producers Geoff Johns and Jon Berg, who oversaw Joss Whedon's reshoots, has quietly chose to move to the side, and will not receive producer credits for "The Snyder Cut".

It also appears like players will encounter a Jedi temple and will also learn to once more wield the force. And the voice of Frank Oz as Yoda.

The end of Suicide Squad saw Joker and his goons breaking Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn out of Belle Reve, although as detailed in Birds of Prey, the couple broke up soon afterwards.

However, there's a very interesting reveal in The Hollywood Reporter's piece on the Leto news.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming is now underway with Leto, Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, and Amber Heard among those involved in shooting new scenes for the movie. The project will also include Amber Heard as Queen Mera. The original post-production crew is also expected to return along with the cast members to record additional dialogue for the cut.

Fisher described it as "gross, abusive, unprofessional and completely unacceptable". The reason given is that neither Johns nor Berg are studio executives and they had no involvement with this incarnation of the film. Momoa had sided with Fisher on this and asked for the guilty to be held accountable. "So you can better understand how deep this goes: After speaking out about Justice League, I received a phone call from the President of DC Films wherein he attempted to throw Joss Whedon and Jon Berg under the bus in hopes that I would relent on Geoff Johns. I will not", Fisher had said.
