Jared Leto is returning to the DC Comics fold, reprising his role as the Joker from 2016's 'Suicide Squad' in Zack Snyder's new version of Justice League.

Jared Leto is returning to the DC Comics fold, reprising his role as the Joker from 2016's Suicide Squad in Zack Snyder's new version of Justice League, Variety has confirmed.

It's unclear whether Leto was always meant to appear in Justice League before Snyder left the feature in early 2017 in advance of significant reshoots by filmmaker Joss Whedon, or if Leto is a new addition given the four-hour length of Snyder's updated Justice League, which will premiere on HBO Max in 2021.

Regardless, Leto's involvement further knits together Snyder's Justice League with Suicide Squad, which featured Ben Affleck's Batman in a cameo role as he tried to take down Leto's Joker and Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn.

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, also directed by Snyder, features a shot of the costume for Batman's sidekick Robin with "Ha Ha Ha Joke's on you Batman" scrawled over top – a reference to the Batman comic storyline in which the Joker kills Robin. – Reuters
