Jared Leto set to reprise Joker
Los Angeles, Oct 22 (Ians) Hollywood star Jared Leto is all set to return as the comicbook villain Joker.

The project, officially titled "Zack Snyder's Justice League", is being overseen by HBO Max, and will air as a four-episode event series next year.

Shooting of the project is currently underway with Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher and Amber Heard, along with Leto. The rest of the cast hasn't been confirmed.

The film is Snyder's version of "Justice League", the 2017 superhero film he was forced to exit, and subsequently completed by Joss Whedon.

Michael Keaton Can't Confirm His Batman Return in The Flash

Michael Keaton Can't Confirm His Batman Return in The Flash
Batman fans were thrown into an excited frenzy earlier this year when it was revealed that Michael Keaton would be returning to don the cape and cowl in director Andy Muschietti's The Flash. Though it is believed that Keaton's triumphant return is confirmed, the actor himself has poured a little cold water over proceedings when asked about the role in a recent interview.

"I can't confirm anything."

Michael Keaton continued saying, "So, we're having discussions as they say. We're talking about it. We'll see if that happens." Suddenly, Keaton's involvement in The Flash does not sound as nailed down as previously thought. Keaton then went on to joke that "all 127" previous "Batmen" will appear in the movie before declaring himself to be the best Batman.

Now, before you let disappointment crush you like a hydraulic press, Keaton not confirming his return as the Dark Knight is not a major

The Internet Is Freaking Out Over Jared Leto Returning As Joker
This afternoon brought the latest bit of unexpected DC news in a year that’s been full of it. Today we learned that Jared Leto is coming back as the Joker in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. The revamp of the 2017 team-up flick is shooting new scenes now, and it’s been reliably reported that the actor is already on set.

And those fans have flooded social media with excited reactions following the announcement that he’s returning for a second outing, as you can see below.

This is insane!

Jared Leto Will Return as Joker for Zack Snyder's Justice League Reshoots

Jared Leto Will Return as Joker for Zack Snyder's Justice League Reshoots
Jared Leto is making his return as the Joker in an unlikely place. The Oscar-winning actor will appear in Zack Snyder's Justice League, aka The Snyder Cut, which is currently in the works for HBO Max. This seems like a strange place for Leto to return as the Clown Prince of Crime, given that he did not appear in the theatrical release of the movie when it arrived in 2017. That raises some new questions about how much new content is being included in Snyder's new cut of the DC superhero team-up.

According to a new report, Jared Leto is part of the Justice League reshoots, which are said to be taking place right now. This means that Leto will be shooting new footage for The Snyder Cut. No reports ever surfaced of Jared Leto filming anything back when Zack Snyder initially shot the movie before departing the director's chair.

Jared Leto Reprising Joker Role in Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ Cut For HBO Max
Jared Leto doesn’t look to be done with his Joker role just yet as Deadline can confirm the Oscar winner is set to reprise the role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which is premiering on HBO Max in 2021.

Officially titled Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the directors cut is being overseen by HBO Max, which is financing the new round of shooting and the completion of the many unfinished scenes, and will air as a four-episode event series next year.

Shooting is currently underway with Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, and Amber Heard along with Leto. At this time it is unknown how big of role will be in the film.

Leto’s return is a bit surprising as things did sour when the studio tapped Joaquin Phoenix for another Joker, which did not sit well with Leto. Both sides were able to smooth things over and allow for

Jared Leto Reprising Joker Role for Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’

Jared Leto Reprising Joker Role for Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’
Jared Leto is returning to the DC Comics fold, reprising his role as the Joker from 2016’s “Suicide Squad” in Zack Snyder’s new version of “Justice League.”

It’s unclear whether Leto was always meant to appear in “Justice League” before Snyder left the feature in early 2017 in advance of significant reshoots by filmmaker Joss Whedon, or if Leto is a new addition given the four-hour length the upcoming Snyder Cut, which will premiere on HBO Max in 2021.

Regardless, Leto is joining other actors from “Justice League” this week for additional photography on the project.

His involvement further knits together Snyder’s “Justice League” with previous DC Comics film “Suicide Squad,” which featured Ben Affleck’s Batman in a cameo role as he tried to take down Leto’s Joker and Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” also directed by Snyder, features a shot

The Snyder Cut Adds Jared Leto’s Joker, Drops Jon Berg and Geoff Johns Producer Credits

The Snyder Cut Adds Jared Leto’s Joker, Drops Jon Berg and Geoff Johns Producer Credits
Batman’s most infamous villain the Joker is returning in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League,” more widely known as the Snyder Cut. Sources confirm to The Hollywood Reporter that Jared Leto will reprise his “Suicide Squad”-iteration of the Joker in Snyder’s reshot production. Leto’s villain was not featured in the 2017 theatrical cut of “Justice League.” THR adds: “Shooting is currently underway with Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, and Amber Heard among those involved on top of Leto. It is unclear which other actors are involved.”

WarnerMedia announced in May it was moving forward with the Snyder Cut and giving Zack Snyder the chance to make his version of “Justice League.” Snyder left the comic book tentpole in post-production due to a family tragedy, leaving Warner Bros. to bring in Joss Whedon to complete the project and oversee reshoots. Whedon’s theatrical cut was panned by critics and overhauled

Jared Leto to Return as The Joker in ‘Justice League’ Snyder Cut

Jared Leto to Return as The Joker in ‘Justice League’ Snyder Cut
Jared Leto, who starred as The Joker in 2016’s “Suicide Squad,” will return to play the clown prince of crime in Zack Snyder’s cut of “Justice League,” according to an individual with knowledge of the project.

The so-called “Snyder Cut” of “Justice League” will be a 4-hour-long, episodic presentation on HBO Max, created with a budget of around $70 million. And while initial reporting held that no additional filming would occur and new material would largely consist of special effects work, that clearly has changed.

Justice League” underwent a lot of changes during its original production, most notably when Snyder abruptly exited the movie during post-production, just months ahead of its November 2017 release date. “Avengers” director Joss Whedon was subsequently hired to “finish” the film for Snyder in time for that date, but instead he ended up overseeing extensive reshoots intended to drastically change the story — again, while still gunning for its original release date.

Jared Leto Returning As Joker For Zack Snyder’s Justice League

Jared Leto Returning As Joker For Zack Snyder’s Justice League
The Flash has already proven to us that the Dceu has more than enough room for multiple versions of the same character, given that we’ll be seeing several different Batmen in the film. And wherever the Dark Knight goes, you just know that the Joker won’t be far behind. That being said, the role is still vacant in the franchise’s main timeline.

Joaquin Phoenix headlined Todd Phillips’ standalone psychological thriller and helped it earn over a billion dollars at the box office, but it’s not like he’ll be crossing over into the Dceu to do battle with Robert Pattinson or Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusaders. At least, not anytime soon.

Meanwhile, Jared Leto’s take on the character was seemingly written out of the franchise and swept under the rug following the poor reception to his performance in Suicide Squad, though in recent months, there

No joke, Jared Leto is set to reprise his Suicide Squad role as The Joker in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which is now the official title for The Snyder Cut. According to the Hollywood Reporter, reshoots are currently under way, with Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher and Amber Heard back as Batman, Cyborg and Mera, though Henry Cavill's Superman is noticeably absent from the cast list for the big-budget "reshoots." Zack Snyder's Justice League will debut next year as a four-episode event series on HBO Max, and neither Geoff Johns nor Jon Berg will be receiving …

Michael Keaton Addresses If He’ll Return As Batman In The Flash

Michael Keaton Addresses If He’ll Return As Batman In The Flash
Michael Keaton hasn’t donned the cape and cowl for 28 years, but he’s about to once again in the upcoming Flash movie. DC has big plans for this one, too, with Ezra Miller’s Scarlet Speedster set to tear through the multiverse in his initial solo outing.

The first big returning name attached to the project was Keaton, who was announced to be involved in the summer. And for the first time since then, the star has now addressed his comeback. While speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host pressed Keaton on whether he could officially confirm that he was returning as Batman. As a superhero movie vet by now, the Spider-Man: Homecoming actor knew better than to let anything slip, so he kept his response brief.

“I can’t confirm anything,” Keaton replied when asked. He then had a bit of fun back-and-forth with Kimmel, asking if the

Ben Affleck’s Reportedly Signed On For Batman HBO Max Series And More Movies

Ben Affleck’s Reportedly Signed On For Batman HBO Max Series And More Movies
Even before Ben Affleck officially signed on the dotted line to return as the Dceu’s Batman in The Flash, rumors had been swirling for months about an imminent comeback. It was the actor’s personal troubles that caused him to retire from the role in the first place rather than any professional issues with playing the character, and he never really got a genuine opportunity to show what he could bring to the part besides an encouraging introduction in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice that eventually became lost in the muddled story.

Affleck was also just one of the many stars that suffered from the painfully obvious Justice League reshoots, and in several scenes in the movie you could tell that his heart wasn’t really in it. Of course, the 48 year-old will be looking to put things right when he suits up in the Scarlet Speedster’s solo debut,

Jennifer Garner Details the Paparazzi's Painful Impact on Her Family Life
Jennifer Garner considers the paparazzi a "cost of doing business" in Hollywood, but not at the expense of her children's wellbeing. In an especially personal appearance on PBS' Tell Me More With Kelly Corrigan, the actress recalls the extreme lengths that photographers would take to follow her, then-husband Ben Affleck and their three kids, Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, Samuel, 8, day in and day out for an entire decade.  "For 10 years," Garner shares, "there were at the very least six cars and often 20 outside of our house, and outside of school, and at the pediatrician's. And you're begging them, 'Please step aside from the pediatrician's door. I have a sick...

Dwayne Johnson Reportedly Trying To Get Tom Cruise In Black Adam Franchise

Dwayne Johnson Reportedly Trying To Get Tom Cruise In Black Adam Franchise
Black Adam is still a long ways away from premiering, but it’s clear that everyone involved anticipates that the film will be the beginning of a blockbuster franchise. Warner Bros. is reportedly in the process of trying to sign Dwayne Johnson to as many as ten more movies under the Dceu banner, starting with the aforementioned pic, and the 48-year-old is also looking ahead to the future as he’s apparently begun to recruit folks to star in Black Adam 2, and one of the big names on his wish list is Tom Cruise.

Kevin Smith Says Stan Lee Will Be In Mallrats 2

Kevin Smith Says Stan Lee Will Be In Mallrats 2
Last week, we heard that Kevin Smith has got the full cast back together for Mallrats 2. That means leads Jeremy London and Jason Lee as T.S. Quint and Brodie, along with Shannen Doherty, Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams, Claire Forlani, Michael Rooker and Jason Mewes. But one member of the cast who most assumed couldn’t return was the dearly departed Stan Lee.

In the 1996 original, Lee appeared as himself, dispensing sage advice to our heroes, answering questions about whether Reed Richards can stretch every single part of his body and talking about how the superheroes he created were all reflections of his own emotions. It’s one of the most memorable scenes in the movie, and Lee puts in a great performance.

Now, Smith has stated that Stan Lee will indeed be back in Mallrats 2, but he’s not revealing how, saying:

Sony Pictures Acquires Studio 8’s Family Comedy ‘Adulting’

Sony Pictures Acquires Studio 8’s Family Comedy ‘Adulting’
Sony Pictures has landed Adulting, a high-concept family comedy feature film from Studio 8 that was written by Chris Hazzard and Michael Fontana based on their original idea. Studio 8’s Jeff Robinov, John Graham and Guy Danella are producing the pic, which is now in development.

The logline is under wraps but is said to be a unique spin on the coming-of-age movie, exploring the themes of marriage, divorce and parenting through the lens of adolescence. No director was announced.

Hazzard and Fontana recently penned a draft of Lionsgate’s musical comedy Under Cover starring Zachary Levi and Cole Sprouse, and they also adapted Mattel Films’ View-Master and sold their adaptation of Ex-Mas to Amazon with Alloy producing. Hazzard and Fontana are repped by Anonymous Content and Morris Yorn.

Up next for Studio 8 is the Robert Rodriguez-directed Ben Affleck thriller Hypnotic, the company’s first pic under its partnership with Solstice Studios.

WB Reportedly Wants Matt Reeves To Do His Own Superman Movie

WB Reportedly Wants Matt Reeves To Do His Own Superman Movie
After Ben Affleck’s tenure in the cape and cowl failed to become a big hit with general audiences, The Batman is set to relaunch the Dark Knight on the silver screen, with Warner Bros. hoping that they can recapture the glory days of Christopher Nolan’s trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne and Matt Reeves in the director’s chair. In fact, it’s possible that the studio has so much faith in the filmmaker that they’re willing to trust him with that other DC tentpole character, Superman.

We Got This Covered has heard from our sources this week – the same ones who previously informed us that a Green Lantern show is coming to HBO Max and that Ben Affleck was returning as the Caped Crusader – that Warner Bros. is making use of the establishing of the multiverse in The Flash movie to open the door to an alternate Superman film,

Sony Reportedly Interested In Solo Spider-Man Spinoffs Like Joker
If it isn’t enough that we’re going to have three different versions of the Dark Knight appearing on our screens in 2022 when Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton suit up in The Flash eight months after Robert Pattinson debuts as the Dark Knight in The Batman, we may also end up with three incarnations of Spider-Man as well.

Ever since Jamie Foxx was announced to be returning as The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s Electro in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Spider-Man 3, rumors began swirling that a live-action Spider-Verse could be on the cards, and the speculation only intensified when Benedict Cumberbatch also signed on, with the actor gearing up to shoot Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

An Underrated Batman Movie Is Finding Lots Of Love On Netflix

An Underrated Batman Movie Is Finding Lots Of Love On Netflix
As one of the most enduringly popular characters in any medium, Batman is inevitably one of the most heavily adapted, and the Caped Crusader finds himself comfortably ranking alongside Dracula and Sherlock Holmes as an almost ubiquitous presence on our screens.

When The Batman debuts in March 2022, Robert Pattinson will be the seventh actor to play a live-action Bruce Wayne in the space of a decade following Christian Bale and Ben Affleck in the movies, along with Kevin Conroy, Iain Glen, David Mazouz and Warren Christie in the various TV shows.

Outside of live-action, though, Batman has also been a regular fixture of DC’s animated output, starring in dozens upon dozens of movie and TV projects. One of the most underrated ones has recently landed on Netflix, too, and Batman: The Killing Joke managed to crack the streaming service’s Top 10 most-watched list just a few days ago, coming
