Director James Gunn of the Suicide Squad today unveiled his favorite actor, Joker, during the Instagram Q+A presentation. Many actors decorated the screen as clown criminals. This list includes Jack Nicholson, Cameron Jared Leto, Cesar Romero and Heath Ledger. But in Gunn’s eyes, he’s trapped in Joaquin Phoenix as a wrong choice. After the Joker’s overwhelming performance last year, it would have been difficult for most fans to disagree. After all the hype he brought such recognition and Phoenix’ crazy performance is an absolute victory. But some fans of Suicide Squad are still sad that it’s only the summer.
Sommer and Phoenix will be connected because of their proximity to the role. However, it is also widely believed that The Joker’s success has closed the door to the character’s suicide version. Many years ago, The Joker and Harley Quinn starred in a joint film with Margot Robbie and Summer. But shortly after, the Joker got the green light, and that’s all she wrote. The summer would have been overwhelmed by this news and was looking forward to direct this film solo. Who knows, from another perspective, one day he might be standing in front of Batman Ben Affleck.
For his part in all this, Gunn has already said that the Joker will not be near his version of the Suicide Squad, but by summer was nothing. Nobody knows all the characters in the film except me and a few others, but if the Joker isn’t in the film, I don’t think it would be strange because he’s not on the suicide squad in the comics, Gunn replied. This seems reasonable, and unfortunately for the fans of the 2016 movie this will be the case for the Joker Jared Summer. But also Joaquin Phoenix will not join the Suicide Squad.
In the Suicide Squad Viola Davis plays Amanda Waller, Margo Robbie plays Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney plays Captain Boomerang, Joel Quinnaman plays Rick Flagg, David Dastmalcian plays Polka Dot Maine, Steve Age plays King of Sharks, Daniela Melchior plays Rattleship, John Chen plays Peacemaker. Floula Borg, Nathan Filion, Mailing Ng, Pete Davidson, Sean Gunn, Joaquin Cosio, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Taika Whititi, Alice Braga, Tinasha Kajese, Peter Cappaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Idris Elba and Michael Rucker all played previously unknown roles.
