2016 will see the new Joker, played by Jared Leto, in the Suicide Squad movie.

It's not been confirmed the movie will feature Batman, but Joker is already up to his old tricks.

While participaing in a chat on Vyrt, a fan mentioned that Batman was an unseen hero.

Leto's reply to the fan?

"Batman is dead."

Obviously, Jared Leto doesn't mean Batman is really dead, but more than likely Leto is just talking smack meaning that there is a new Joker in town.

New Batman Ben Affleck debuts in Batman Vs. Superman, which hits March 25, 2016. Suicide Squad featuring Jared Leto as the Joker hits five months later. I wonder if Zack Snyder will reference Joker in Batman Vs. Superman?

Suicide Squad has an August 6, 2016 release directed by David Ayer.
