A new report surfaced this afternoon (11-7-14) that claims Warner Bros. wants Jared Leto for the role of The Joker. According to the (alleged) inside source, the studio is in talks with the Oscar-winning actor to play Batman's arch-enemy in the upcoming 'Suicide Squad' movie.
As of this evening, neither Warner Bros. or Leto has responded to the report.
I have a feeling this story has some truth behind it - Leto as The Joker just seems like a great match.
