When it comes Justice League, fans are keeping a close eye on Zack Snyder and the director's upcoming version of the film. His cut of the blockbuster has been discussed in secret for years, and fans were beyond hyped when Warner Bros. confirmed it would be bringing his version to HBO Max. And thanks to a new announcement, netizens are geeking out hardcore after it was revealed Jared Leto has joined the flick.
Yes, you did read that right. Leto's Joker is making a comeback. The actor is said to be reprising the role of Joker for Zack Snyder's Justice League, and the Internet is sounding off.
According to reports from trades like The Hollywood Reporter, Leto has started work on Justice League. He has been tapped to do some additional photography with the likes of Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, and Amber Heard. At this time, there is no word on how long these reshoots will last, but the film is slated to debut in 2021 still.
This announcement has the DC fandom shaking as Leto's reception was mixed to say the least. His version of the Joker debuted under Suicide Squad which David Ayer directed. His modernized version of the villain was met with polarizing reactions. Some felt the updated version was flimsy while others praised the novel take on the character. Now, Snyder is going to work out his version of Leto's Joker, and fans believe his dark style will suit the tattooed gangster well.

Batman and Joker Forever
According to @THR, Jared Leto will reprise his role as the Joker in Zack Snyder's JUSTICE LEAGUE.
I am actually very quite fond of this. I think Leto's Joker would largely benefit under Snyder's direction.
Hopefully we can finally see a proper interaction with Batfleck. pic.twitter.com/qKT639UWEV— Jesabel (@JesabelRaay) October 21, 2020

Leto and Affleck?!
Leto's Joker scenes are probably with Affleck's Batman.
Leto is supposedly filming for the additional photography *right now*.

A Second Shot
I definitely have my issues with Jared Leto as the Joker, but one thing I think everyone can agree on is that he didn't have nearly enough screen time to really judge the performance. I'm also excited to see what this character will be like under Zack Snyder's direction. pic.twitter.com/LQLifxgoWv— Eren | Caboose (@CabooseEK) October 21, 2020
the thought of seeing Leto's Joker under Snyder's direction has me so intrigued pic.twitter.com/eraK2PmcHI— Alex 🎃 (@fleckbats) October 21, 2020
Finishing an Arc
What I dig about this is that it shows how Snyder wanted to use Joker in an arc that involved his killing of Robin that was weaved through BvS, Suicide Squad & then JL. So it sounds like this scene from BATMAN V SUPERMAN is going to get some pay off now in Snyder's #JusticeLeague pic.twitter.com/k3TxpWs1N6— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) October 21, 2020
