Zack Snyder’s replacement as director very late into the making of the 2017 Justice League was controversial. But not more than Jared Leto’s snazzy Joker in Suicide Squad. All this hullabaloo surrounding DC Comics characters will officially culminate in Zack Snyder’s Justice League as Leto reportedly makes it to the sets. The project will release as a four-part miniseries on HBO Max. And later as a four-hour film sometime in 2021.
Leto’s Joker in Suicide Squad was not very well received. It has become more apparent now that he did not appear in Birds of Prey earlier this year. It was also said that “Snyder’s Cut” will only add visual effects, background score, and dialogues to the 2017 version. But it seems like Snyder wanted to do more. And now he also wants Leto in the film, as per Hollywood Reporter.
Leto’s entry into the mix is only the freshest controversy surrounding Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry/ Aquaman and Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen/ The Flash are reportedly not on the sets. They therefore might not have new scenes in there. The project will also include Amber Heard as Queen Mera.
THE CURIOS CASE OF FISCHER
The conflict between Fisher and Warner Bros continues. Fisher had accused Snyder’s replacement director Joss Wheadon. He had Whedon for this treatment of the cast and crew on Twitter.
Fisher described it as “gross, abusive, unprofessional and completely unacceptable”. Former DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns wasn’t spared either. Jason Momoa had sided with Fisher on this and asked for the guilty to be held accountable.
“So you can better understand how deep this goes: After speaking out about Justice League, I received a phone call from the President of DC Films wherein he attempted to throw Joss Whedon and Jon Berg under the bus in hopes that I would relent on Geoff Johns. I will not,” Fisher had said.
