My fellow comic book nerds, get ready to geek out as Warner Bros has announced that 30 Seconds to Mars frontman and Academy Award winning actor Jared Leto will play the Joker in the Suicide Squad movie.

Leto will have some big shoes to fill as we all know that the last time the Joker was on the big screen it brought an Oscar to the late Heath Ledger.

The Suicide Squad movie will be  bringing DC Comics’ super villain team to the big screen as a new action adventure under the direction of David Ayer (Fury).

Along with Leto the film has an all star cast including two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith  as Deadshot, Tom Hardy as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress.

The movie will be released in summer of 2016
