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:

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.

The guy who has plans to sue Warner Bros. with his brother (who happens to be a lawyer) kicks off his fiery, inspired rant with just the kind of intro you'd expect...

My brother (who is a lawyer) and I are going to sue WB and DC for false advertising, misleading visual images and gaining a profit from us and millions others due to these acts. Our case has been accepted. We begin 11.08.16

And then he dives deep into all his reasoning for this madness...

"Movie Trailers are like food menus, they give you a preview of what your gonna get. If you look at a McDonald's menu and you choose to get your favourite burger, presented/showcased in a nice picture with pickles, chicken, mild cheese(you're favourite, in-fact...that's the only reason you're getting this burger...because you love mild cheese). So you use your hard worked money to pay for this burger, you get the burger, but only to find out that...this isn't the burger you ordered. Yes it has pickles and chicken...but...it doesn't have mild cheese...it has regular cheese.

Suicide Squad trailers showcased several SPECIFIC Joker scenes that I had to pay for the whole movie just so that I can go watch those SPECIFIC SCENES that WB/DC had advertised in their trailers and TV spots. These scenes are: When Joker banged his head on his car window, when Joker says, ''let me show you my toys'', when Joker punchs the roof of his car, when Joker drops a bomb with his face all messed up and says, ''BYE BYE!''. Non of these scenes were in the movie. I drove 300 miles to London to go watch these specific scenes they had explicitly advertised in their TV ads...and they didn't show them to me. Adding to this, they were also 2 specific Katana scenes they advertised that were also the reason I wanted to go watch the movie. These scenes were: Katana's eyes going black, and a slow motion shot of her and her sword taking souls...in a smokey kind of style. These scenes were advertised several times in the 1st trailer and many TV ads...but they didn't show it to me in the movie. I wasted alot of money paying and travelling to go watch this movie because of these specific scenes they had advertised to me and all of us saying, ''hey, check out our preview! this will all be in our movie, come watch it on the 5th!!''. All lies. I told the theatre about this unjust act and said I didn't get what I came here to see...can I have my money back. They laughed at me and kicked me out. So I'm now taking this to court. I want my refund, the trauma of being embarrassed as I was being kicked out and people laughing at me for wanting my refund, and also the 160 pounds of fuel money I used to drive to London from Scotland.

If you advertise something...give me what you have advertised. Period. This is becoming a habbit with movie studios, showing epic scenes in trailers...but their never shown in the movies. It's unjust.

I just want to say, join me if you feel the same way. Let's stop this nonsense of false bullshitery...and don't let them bribe you with their ''deluxe premium special directors gold extended edition supreme cut'' nonsense. You should get what they advertised as their first theatre showing and what you have paid for based on what they have showed you in their advertisements.

Our court process will begin on 11/08/16 this week."


Why so litigious, bruh?....



Alriiighty then...just wait for Jared Leto to lash out at this ridiculousness somehow.

A Suicide Squad source was recently quoted saying the following in regards to the potentail for Suicide Squad spin-off movies:

“They’re going to do a sequel for sure, and the recently announced Harley Quinn spinoff with Margot Robbie has got everyone excited, but their plans don’t end there. The studio is feeling very confident in the property. They think it’s going to be a really big hit and they think audiences are going to fall in love with these characters.

The Joker is a definite possibility for a spinoff, and Jared [Leto] seems up for it. I’ve heard more than a few talks of giving some of the other Task Force X members their own spinoffs. And like the Harley Quinn one, these films would open the door for a ton of new DC characters to show up. They’re also really hot on Jai Courtney’s character Boomerang right now. Nothing’s set in stone yet, but you’re definitely going to be seeing a lot more of these guys in the years to come.”

Get hyped, Batman fans, and while we're at it, all you tens of 60 Seconds to Mars fans should get hyped, too. Jared Leto is getting ready to play a joke on the DC Universe.

In his latest instagram post, he wants you to know he's taking this seriously. The Killing Joke by Alan Moore is a classic Batman-book that gives us a look into the criminal master-mind's origins.

Suicide Squad can't come soon enough.

Also, don't worry too much about that Joker promotional image. Sources are suggesting that Jared Leto's take on the clown prince of crime will come without the tattoos.

He'll look something more like this:

Apparently hanging out with psychopaths and sending his coworkers anal beads and used condoms wasn't enough for Leto. In the video above, Leto says the following about his various 'laughing practice' bouts with the public:

“I worked on the laugh walking around the streets of New York and Toronto, and I kinda would walk around the streets and see what laugh would get under people’s skin. You know when you hear someone laugh at a restaurant? It’s a little jarring. I tried them out. And I kind of got to a place where I would laugh and people are always turning around like, ‘Who is this creepy guy behind me?’ “

No chill, bro.

Jared Leto keeps churning out the ridiculousness. Recently Leto was reported as being so unhappy with Suicide Squad that he hasn't bothered to see the movie yet. Even more recently, Leto went full on rage mode at Camp Mars to further vent his frustration. While no video of the instance has surfaced yet, someone in attendance provided the following summary of what Leto said:

"He was very honest about the film this weekend; his disappointment in what he’s learned of the theatrical cut (he’s still not seen the film); feeling sort of tricked into being a part of something that had been pitched to him very differently; thinking it would’ve been more artistic than what it became; feeling overwhelmed by the hate regarding the look and choices."

And here's what Leto had to say about the studio trying to shut him down on one of his favorite activities, rock climbing:

If only, right? There's method acting, and then there's that...Jared Leto, what the f**k are you doing dude? In a recent interview, Viola Davis had the following to say of her psychotic co-star:

“It was a little worrisome,” Davis said. “It made you a little bit nervous and I’m pretty tough. You know I got into a few fights when I was growing up…but it scared me a little bit.Before that I was only introduced to The Joker…and I almost had my pepper spray out. You know, ‘You remember that bullet you sent me?'” Davis said.

Soo, wait, can we hope for some sort of Viola Davis kicking the living sh*t out the Joker in those DVD deleted scenes extras, or what? This is just the latest development in an already extensive series of outrageous 'method-acting' Joker gifts (used condoms and anal beads for instance..).

Question is, how will this madman go about approaching this role with his outlandish method acting ways? Writer-Director Josh Boone took to Twitter to get fans of the original film fired up with the following pic portraying Leto's possible involvement.

Both Mark Ruffalo and Jared Leto wanted to enjoy New York City Comic Con as plebs rather than geek royalty, so they went incognito in masks to join the festivities. Were you at NYCC? Did you see either of these fellas? Quickly, check your photos for evidence!


That Joker cosplayer is probably having a heart attack right now.
