The crew have all assembled in Toronto for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad as production is set to begin. Ayer has been tweeting out some of the set photos (which you can check out below) and also had some words about his new vision for The Joker.
When a fan asked him to describe Jared Leto’s Joker in one word, he said he would be, “majestic”. This is off the back of Leto himself calling the Clown Prince of Crime as “a beautiful disaster”.
