18 Mar – Although the reception on his portrayal have been mixed, Jared Leto recently admitted that he has no qualms reprising his role as The Joker again in the future.
In an interview with Variety to promote his new movie, "Morbius", Leto was asked if he would be open to playing the supervillain again, to which he said, "Never say never."
He admitted to being attached to his characters, adding, "For me, they're like living, breathing people. I know they're not, of course, but I get attached. It's a shame to never do it again."
It is noted that Leto, whose guest performance as The Joker in "Suicide Squad" was widely panned, previously returned as the infamous Batman supervillain in Zack Snyder's "Justice League" – a performance that was considered much more acceptable to fans.
On the other hand, when speaking about working on "Morbius", Leto stated that he did extensive research for his role, from meeting doctors and patients who taught him about living with a rare, incurable blood disease, to learning how to walk with a limp.
"I don't want to get too specific because I'd like to keep some of that for myself. But I leaned in - no pun unintended. I'm a sucker for a pun, but I didn't mean that. I worked with people who had this specific physical challenge and modeled it after that," he said.
