Jared Leto has hinted that he may return as The Joker in a new film that pits the villain against Batman.
The actor portrayed the DC Comics character in last year’s Suicide Squad, although there were rumours that his role in the film was significantly cut by director David Ayer.
Leto set off fan speculation once again by posting an image of himself dressed as The Joker holding a knife to Batman’s throat.
While no official announcement of Leto’s role in any future Batman project has been forthcoming, there is speculation that he could play The Joker in the forthcoming The Batman film, which will star Ben Affleck in the title role.
Leto is likely to play the villain again in a future DC film, and his latest hint at a return to the role follows another teasing post back in January that alluded to him taking on the role of The Joker once again.
