Jared Leto Mum On Playing Joker (Again)



It's been said that Jared Leto is up for the role of The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.

Leto was previously asked about playing the character, but sort of dodged the questioning.

Now Jared Leto is asked about playing The Joker again by THR, and Leto this time says he can't talk about it.

"I've sworn to keep my mouth shut," Leto said.

It's possible Leto is either in talks for the role of The Joker or has been cast, but is awaiting the official announcement from Warner Bros. before he comments.

Jared Leto has also been rumored to be a contender to play Doctor Strange for Marvel Studios.

Also rumored for the Suicide Squad movie is Tom Hardy, Will Smith,  Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Jon Bernthal, with Jesse Eisenberg also rumored to appear as Lex Luthor.

Suicide Squad has a 2016 release directed by David Ayer.
