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.

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.

This rather shocking revelation follows Justice League #42 when Batman who has gained possession of the Mobius Chair (basically a badass time-traveling chair that can answer all one might ever have to ask) tests the chair's ability to actually answer any question by asking who killed his parents, and then after hearing the correct answer, asking what the Joker's name is.



Not until this week's Justice League #50 did we finally figure out what Batman heard back from the Mobius Chair. After the events of the Darkseid War, Hal Jordan goes on to ask Batman what exactly the Mobius Chair said in reply to his question. 



And this is where it gets real weird, real quick: the chair didn't provide Batman one name, it tricky skullduggerous know 'n see all piece of high-tech furniture provided Batman three. THREE. Like wait what? A bold move by Geoff Johns, for sure.

We'll be curious to see how this pans out, as Joker's notorious for his inability to 'play well with others', but were the three Jokers ever to manage a coordinated attack against the dark night, it's probably fair to say that sh*t would hit the fan in one way or another...

New High Quality Photos for Suicide Squad Have Been Released, and Jared Leto Looks So Much Like 52 Joker

I don't care what the haters say here, but Jared Leto and those Hot Topic-esque tats are starting to grow on me, after all. Leto's really looking like 52 Joker, and I'm thrilled to see him square off toe to toe with Baffleck in the future!

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.'

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.”

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.”

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.
