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:

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.

Suicide Squad Director David Ayer said the following on Joker's 'damaged' forehead tattoo:

“Joker killed Robin and Batman basically smashes his teeth out and locks him up in Arkham Asylum,” Ayer said. “It’s in the asylum where Joker would have done the ‘damaged’ tattoo as a message to Batman saying, ‘You’ve damaged me. I was so beautiful before and now you’ve destroyed my face.’ That’s where the grill comes from.”

When will it ever end Jared Leto? When? In a recent interview Leto had with Rolling Stone, he shed some (unwanted) light on his process for trying to get into character for Joker, and ended it all with a ridiculous idea for how Joker would handle an interview.



Before continuing, let's just say it's almost as absurd as Killer Croc's (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) routine when he watched straight up cannibalism videos to try and hone in on his character's mentality...



Naturally, Leto’s process got real weird, real quick. He started watching footage of actual violent crimes on YouTube, until he had to outright stop himself.

“The Joker is incredibly comfortable with acts of violence,” says Leto. “I was watching real violence, consuming that. There’s a lot you can learn from seeing it. Not every act of violence is committed with frenzy, either. I remember learning that. People can be calm. They’ve made their choice and go and do something, and it’s not in a frenzy.” His eyes have gone cold. “It’s methodical and sometimes even hypnotic and deliberate.”And with what was apparently no prompting, Leto finished up his interview saying “If the Joker did this interview, he’d definitely castrate you and make you eat your own testicles. Just for fun. That’s if he liked you.”

Jared Leto put up something of a fit recently because he claims he feels he was tricked into being a part of the Suicide Squad movie...what do you make of all that noise?

Apparently giving co-stars gifts like used condoms, anal beads, dead rats and pigs, wasn't enough for Leto; just yesterday the crazy fool gave Jimmy Fallon a live snake. See for yourself:



Dude, Jared Leto, you have no chill. During a recent interview with Fox 5 DC Leto said the following when asked about why he gave his poor Suicide Squad co-stars all those crazy gifts:

“The Joker loves to play games, he loves to manipulate, and that was part of the reason to do that. When you do give a gift to someone, even in real life, you think about, ‘What do I get them?,’ you think about who that person is to you, what would they like? So that immediately started to be really good homework for me. What do I give Deadshot? What’s my relationship with Deadshot? I gave Deadshot a briefcase full of bullets. It was kind of a message, it was kind of a threat, it was kind of a reminder. I wrote every character a note — a poem. What it did was that it started me on a journey into thinking what these people are, and it was a lot of fun.” (transcribed by Cinema Blend)

Here's the full 20-minute interview, if you've got that kind of time lying around; and if you want to hear Jared Leto straight up utter, 'human meat is always a great gift.'

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.

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.

And here I thought Jared Leto trying to go 'method' for Joker by sending in used and abused condoms and anal beads, was as bad 'n sick 'n twisted as it'd ever get; but nah, turns out actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje had something up his sleeve. Akinnuoye-Agbaje says, “I did a lot of research on cannibalistic habits from back to the Mayans and the Aztecs, right up to modern-day cannibals.”

He says he'd also watch a video of a Japanese cannibal, Issei Sagawa, who killed and ate a Dutch woman. He kept it on his phone so he could play it every day...uh. Can't even, right now. Can't even.

“As sick as it sounds, the moment I start to play that video, I’m in the form of Croc, because it’s really important for this creature to be thirsty for flesh, even when he’s around The Squad.”

Suicide Squad hits theaters August 5th. Check out the trailer below:
