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.

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.”

Claiming that they were the only once to get the chance at documenting behind the scenes of filming on the 2016 summer movie Suicide Squad.

The video doesn't give anything away, but it's neat to see the set up that goes into shooting such a big movie. Also, the reporter gets way too excited about Will Smith's chair.
