Jared Leto Won't Commit To Returning As The Joker In The DC Extended Universe

Despite rumours of a movie pitting The Joker against Harley Quinn (isn't that supposed to be Gotham City Sirens?), Jared Leto simply won't reveal whether or not he'll return as the Clown Prince of Crime...

Due to extensive reshoots, Jared Leto's Suicide Squad role was vastly changed from what was originally intended. The movie wrapped up with the Clown Prince of Crime breaking Harley Quinn out of prison and it now remains to be seen whether or not Jared Leto will reprise the role in Suicide Squad 2, Gotham City Sirens, or even that rumoured movie which will pit The Joker against Harley Quinn.

Entertainment Tonight Canada recently caught up with the Blade Runner 2049 star to ask about his future as the iconic Batman villain and Leto provided a frustratingly vague answer. "Talking about Joker [returning in ‘Suicide Squad 2’] is like talking about Fight Club… it’s the first rule. Unless you want to gargle your testicles, it’s probably better to leave it." So, yeah, that's a suitably weird response then! 

Matt Reeves may even want Leto for The Batman; we just don't know right now! Still, the actor made no secret of the fact he was unhappy with so much of his performance being cut from Suicide Squad so when he does return to the role (and it sounds like he hasn't totally discounted that) he'll probably want a significant enough role to ensure that doesn't happen. What do you guys think of this news?
