In case you weren't aware Leto's already mounted an increasingly unbecoming reputation for sending out gift baskets to his Suicide Squad costars, which included items like used condoms, anal beads, and even live rats and dead pigs chock-full of bullets...Well, it just so turns out Leto got seriously lucky when he skipped 'gifting' Davis. Davis went on to tell E! news

"I did not receive any personally or else I would have got my husband who was called the 'headache ball' back in the day when he played football. I would have said, 'Take care of the J.’”

History in the making right here folks..for the first time ever, a DC comic original movie will receive an R rating. The film will star Kevin Conroy who's voicing Batman/Bruce Wayne, Mark Hamill as the Joker (yuss!), and Tara Strong as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon.

For those unaware, The Killing Joke's storyline follows the Clown Prince of Crime and his incessant string of taunts directed at the Dark Knight, by capturing and torturing Batgirl. Some find the story misogynistic, while others think it's the best depiction of Joker out there.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Leto disclosed that he spent actual time with psychopaths and their respective therapists in psych wards while gathering inspiration for his role. We quote, from the interview:

EW: What, specifically, did you do [to prepare for the role]?

JL: There are a lot of things. It’s probably better to not get into it but to the Joker, violence is a symphony. This is someone who gets an extreme reward from the act of violence and manipulation. Those are the songs he sings and he is very in tune with what makes people tick. I did meet with people that were experts, doctors, psychiatrists that dealt with psychopaths and people who had committed horrendous crimes, and then I spent some time with those people themselves, people who have been institutionalized for great periods of time. I guess when you take on a role, any role, you become part detective, part writer, and for me that’s my favorite time of the entire process, the discovering, the uncovering, and the building of a character. Yeah, it’s really fun.

EW: So what did you do to create this guy? What did you go and do? Who did this guy become to you?

JL: He became a real person. I don’t know if person is the right word. I think the Joker lives in between reality and another plane. Kind of a shaman in a way. It’s a very intoxicating role to take on. You have permission to break rules and to challenge yourself and anyone around you in a really unique way.

I first started at the beginning, educating myself, researching, reading as much as I could, going back to the source material. And then at a certain point, I knew I had to stop doing that. Because the Joker has been redefined, reinvented many times before. I think the fun thing about it is when people have done it in the past, there is some spirit of the Joker essence that they keep, but they either build upon something or tear something down and start again at the beginning. For me, I knew once I had gone through the process of educating myself, I had to throw everything away and start from the beginning and really build this from the ground up. It was a transformative process. There was a physical transformation. There was a physical conditioning.

Jared Leto pulled off some fu*ked up shit while shooting Suicide Squad. From straight petrifying Margot Robbie, to making his director David Ayer hire a therapist, to sending his co-stars a live, squirming rat with a side of dead hog--the dude really let himself go. 

Well, it sounds like Leto went full Joker mode and maybe took it too far this time. And I quote:

"Leto just told me he also sent everyone… used condoms and anal beads!" Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays Killer Croc, said he received some “sticky Playboy magazines” from Leto as well. Uhh.

And the most recent Suicide Squad Blitz trailer if you need a quick refresh on just how far down the dark 'n twisted, demented, impeccably depraved rabbit's hole Leto's gone:
