Behind the scenes

  • Ryan Gosling was the first choice to play The Joker.
  • Jared Leto stayed in character between shooting scenes and sent his co-stars bizarre gifts, like a rat with a love letter for Margot Robbie and bullets for Will Smith.
  • Jared Leto took inspiration from the Batman comic "Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth," which portrayed The Joker as a transcendent, unsettling, and seductive person. He also cites gospel music, shamans, and Mexican cartels as an influence on the character.
  • Jared Leto said the role of the Joker was "The role of a lifetime".
  • The Joker appears in animated form in Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)'s prologue which details Harley's life and separation from him while a scene of Jared Leto from Suicide Squad is used in a flashback sequence. In addition, an uncredited body double, later revealed to be a Lo-Fi Rocker Named Johnny Goth portrays the character from the back in a similar flashback scene in which Harley and Joker tattoo a man's face. This was done in this way since Jared Leto could not repeat the role due to scheduling conflicts.
