Joker strikes a sacred pose in a brand new tackle Zack Snyder’s Justice League
A brand new look at Jared Leto’s Joker from Zack Snyder’s Justice League has been released, and it may be the most surprising yet. Joker was neither in the theatrical version of the film nor in Snyder’s original version. This is the only element that was added when the filmmaker was given the opportunity to complete his vision, also known as the Snyder Cut. While this is radically different from the version of the character we saw of Leto in Suicide Squad, it’s no less brave. For better or for worse.

The image was featured in an in-depth article on what Warner Bros. needed for #ReleaseTheSnyderCut. We had previously seen photos of Jared Leto’s Joker in a hospital gown. This seems to be from the same sequence, only this time he’s wearing a crown of thorns and he’s not channeling Jesus as subtly. How exactly this will flow into Joker’s role in the film remains to be seen, but it is sure to spark much debate.
What seems clear is that Zack Snyder went all-in with Joker. As we saw in the recently released Justice League trailer, Joker drops the infamous “We live in a society” line that was commonly used in memes on the internet. And Snyder decided to bring that into the movie. As we can see in this latest pic, he also decided to give Jared Leto a Christ-like makeover.
Apart from Jared Leto Zack Snyder returns as the Joker and will bring his unhindered vision to life for the massive adaptation of DC Comics. It all came about when fans tirelessly fought for Warner Bros. to bring out the so-called Snyder Cut for years. Much of it had to do with the dissatisfaction with the theatrical version. Joss Whedon, who oversaw extensive rewritings and new additions after Snyder left the project, is largely responsible for the 2017 version.
The differences will be significant. Unlike many Director’s Cuts, which add something to the product but largely mirror what had happened before, this is a radical departure from the 2017 Justice League. For one, it will take nearly four hours. Zack Snyder estimates that we only saw around 25 percent of what will appear in the finished product. A new element will be the inclusion of the villain Darkseid, who was previously teased in Batman versus Superman: Dawn of Justice. He didn’t make the cut the first time though. Snyder is also said to have re-recorded the ending, which will now feature a mysterious cameo of a superhero who is going to blow your mind.
Warner Bros. reportedly spent an additional $ 70 million to complete the film. This is in addition to the $ 300 million budget reported from the initial launch. The investment is largely a streaming game designed to empower HBO Max subscribers. Although some kind of theatrical release is being considered. Zack Snyder’s Justice League arrives on HBO Max on March 18. Check out the new photo of Joker from Vanity Fair.
