Jared Leto Reveals The Joker's Level of Insanity in 'Suicide Squad'
Suicide Squad has been stealing a lot of Batman vs. Superman's thunder as DC Comics' prime movie offering in 2016, and a big reason for that has been Jared Leto's enigmatic and highly anticipated performance as The Joker. The iconic villain has been seen numerous times on screen before, but Leto's portrayal looks like it will be unlike anything we've seen of the character before - for better or worse.

The mystery surrounding just how Leto will do as The Joker has been an endless source of debate among fans, but at least now we finally have a little bit of a better idea of just what we can expect since Leto himself has shared how insane his version of The Joker will be. During an appearance at a Q&A as part of Dubai Music Week, Leto told a fan who was dressed as Batman:

"You're really brave ... I can't wait for you to see this, they're going to lock me away in a box after this movie comes out."

Welp, it definitely sounds to us like Leto isn't pulling any punches when it comes to how crazy he's willing to go for this movie if he legitimately thinks people are going to want to lock him away for being too disturbing. In any case, we've got until August 5 to find out. Until then, let the debates continue.
