Jared Leto has filmed one DC superhero universe movie (Suicide Squad) and has a stand-alone Joker film for DC on the way. But it would appear Jared’s loyalty is to his checking account, because he’s getting in bed with Marvel. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Jared has been cast in Morbius. I wish I could say it’s about Moby’s superhero alter-ego who fights crime with techno music, but far from it.
Morbius the Living Vampire made his first appearance in Marvel comics’ The Amazing Spider-Man in 1971. Jared will play Dr. Michael Morbius/Morbius the Living Vampire, which is entirely appropriate considering Jared Leto was born in 1971 and doesn’t appear to have aged much since. And much like the lore of a vampire, Jared has also been rumored to creep on young women in the dark.
Morbius will be directed by Daniel Espinosa. THR doesn’t have any more information on Morbius, but considering the character exists in Spider-Man’s universe, there’s a chance Spider-Man could be involved. Also, Morbius has an ongoing feud with vampire hunter Blade. So who knows? Maybe Wesley Snipes will get the call of a lifetime and finally be able to pay back some of the millions in taxes he owes.
The difference between DC and Marvel to me has always been that DC is dark, brooding, and mysterious, whereas Marvel is more colorful, jokey, and fun. But I have a feeling Jared will tailor his on-set method thespian antics accordingly. Instead of visiting with psychopaths and sending live rats to his co-stars, he’ll rent the Twilight series and giggle while saying he farted on a plate of craft service Twinkies.
The Joker is the role Jared Leto was born to play. I mean, The Joker is basically just a trolling prankster with an enormous ego who’s kind of hard to look at, right? Jared’s got that in spades! Maybe that’s why he’s excited about getting his very own Warner Bros. Joker movie. According to Variety, Jared is going to star in and executive produce a standalone movie based on his version of The Joker from Suicide Squad.
A few years ago, Jared Leto joked in an interview with Rolling Stone that there was a very good chance he’s got a random hook-up baby out there somewhere. As it turns out, the metric for Jared’s hook-ups might not be that random. According to Dylan Sprouse, Jared’s got a pretty narrow age group be targets, and it skews pretty young.
There weren’t a lot of thruples on the red carpet at the Met Gala last night. But that’s ok, you only need one when that one thrupple is as extra as Jared Leto, Lana Del Rey and Alessandro Michele, the creative director at Gucci. I feel like there’s a long hair in my mouth, Yuck. I actually feel like I have hairs all over me now. Shit!
Jared Leto is pretty much the most authentic American we have right now, so it makes perfect sense that he’s undertaking the sacred American rite (for white dudes) of hitchhiking across the country in service of his art. James Franco is livid! Jared’s band 30 Seconds to Mars has an album coming out titled America, which is presumably American themed thus prompting Jared’s journey into the heart of darkness. Jared talked about the trip with “America’s host” on On The Air With Ryan Seacrest.
At the 2018 MusiCares Person Of The Year Honoring Fleetwood Mac event on Saturday night, Jared Leto sashayed onto the red carpet in a look that was an homage to different religions and cults. Jared paid homage to Christianity with that Jesus-like mop. He paid homage to Charles Manson with that overgrown pube beard from hell. He paid homage to Scientology with those Tom Cruise-approved Cha Cha heels. And he paid homage to one of my religions, Elvira in Scarface, by wearing a casual pants version of the impeccable white suit she wore.
For a while now, Jared Leto hasn’t been leaving his house without looking like Gucci just blew a fat, sloppy, ugly clown load all over him. But on Saturday night, everyone at Gucci cried while holding each other and wondering what they did wrong, because their #1 bitch cheated on their asses by wearing neck-to-toe Helmut Lang!!! But Gucci shouldn’t be too sad, I’m sure Jared will be back in their grandma wallpaper-covered arms soon. Since Jared was at an event honoring Fleetwood Mac, he probably thought he should do himself up in 70s Mick Fleetwood drag. Although, that white suit is only something Mick Fleetwood would wear if his first husband dumped him for a younger piece and he joined forces with other scorned first wives to open up a crisis center for women in Manhattan.
