The world will get to see Jared Leto once again reprising his role as the fictional DC supervillain, Joker. The character has been a hot favorite among fans around the world for years, with Joaquin Phoenix earning the Academy Award for Best Actor earlier this year for his take on the Crime Prince of Gotham City in Joker. Fans will know that late Hollywood actor Heath Ledger too immortalized the character with his performance in Christopher Nolan's 2008 global blockbuster, The Dark Knight, with a posthumous Oscar for Best Supporting Actor being awarded. Between Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto had portrayed the iconic character in 2016's Suicide Squad, with the film turning out to be a money-spinner despite mixed reviews. 

Jared Leto, who played the iconic DC villain in 2016’s Suicide Squad, has now joined Zack Snyder's Justice League for filming additional footage. The Snyder Cut of the Justice League is the version fans will be getting sometime in mid-2021 on the streaming service HBO Max and will be split as a four-episode event series. Snyder, who was forced to exit the 2017 Justice League, is getting to finish what he had originally envisioned for the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). 

Filming on Zack Snyder's Justice League resumed on Wednesday with Ben Affleck as Batman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg and Amber Heard as Mera, including Jared Leto as Joker. As of now, it is unknown whether Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ezra Miller (The Flash) had participated in the shoot. Leto's coming on board the Snyder Cut is being looked upon as important considering his take on the character was not to be in the original 2017 movie. His addition to the film also brings into debate the new additional new content that will be included in the upcoming DC superhero film. 

Jared Leto returning to play the Joker in Zack Snyder's Justice League will also tie up the film with Suicide Squad, in which he was initially set to have a larger role, but was cut out eventually to make way for Cara Delevingne's Enchantress / Dr. June Moone to be the main villain. Leto's Joker in the 2016 all-star DC supervillain film saw him as being obsessed with Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn.
