Grant Morrison Gave Joker Advice to Jared Leto for 'Suicide Squad'

In an exclusive with Gamesradar, Grant Morrison revealed that Jared Leto called him to go over his approach to playing the Joker.

Right off the news of Will Smith never speaking to Jared Leto out of character while filming "Suicide Squad", Grant Morrison revealed in an exclusive with Gamesradar that he gave Jared Leto some guidance on his approach to the Joker.

"He [Leto] called me to talk about his approach to the character and I steered him in a few directions. I'm keen to see if anything other than slicked back hair and the Marilyn Manson vibe made it into his performance"

Morrision also voiced his opinion on current CBM needing to take more chances. "I don't think I've seen any great ones for a while. Age of Ultron was solid, but naturally not quite the gamechanger the first Avengers was. We're all familiar with the meat and potatoes superhero stuff, so I think it's time they made Miracleman, Enigma, Flex Mentallo, or something else that's a bit more challenging."

Some interesting points from the All-Star Superman and Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth author. It'll be interesting to see if any of his Joker from the Batman R.I.P. run make it into Suicide Squad.

What do you think of this news? Is Morrison a welcome helping hand to the DCEU? Which Morrison Joker would you like to see Leto take points from? Is this really news or is it just a slow day? Leave your comments below, and as always; take care of one another.
