Joker is Jesus Christ in new image of Zack Snyder’s Justice League

On one side, Superman, because Zack Snyder already has a new favorite character to refer to biblical figures. In a new image released recently by Vanity Fair, on the occasion of the upcoming revised version of Justice League, the Joker played by Jared Leto emulates the very Jesus Christ… As if this DCEU crossover had lacked controversy or media presence in the last three years.

It must be recognized that Snyder, with the endorsement of Warner and HBO Max, has known how to gradually increase the enthusiasm (or rather, the intrigue) around this Joker who, although played by the same Suicide Squad actor, actually promises to show us an entirely unknown facet of him.

Previous images of the criminal clown inside the Snyder Cut – also in black and white – included a photograph with his business card and unfocused face, as well as a full-length photograph that already showed his long hair and a medical gown as a clothing. On the other hand, the crown of thorns and that messiah pose are absolute novelties compared to the idea that (until now) we had made of Jared Leto in the next four-hour HBO Max movie. Will such Christian symbols have particular relevance in a world ravaged by Darkseid?

However, as redemptive as he wants to appear, let’s not expect the Joker to become particularly honorable, since “we live in a society where honor is a distant memory,” as he tells Batman in the official trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League, released on Monday. the middle of this month.

Along with Joker’s messianic look, new information about the tape emerged earlier this week, specifically about his final (which may or may not connect to the rest of the DCEU). This is how Anthony Breznican of Vanity Fair puts it:

«[Zack Snyder] You can screw up the official DC timeline for the characters and let this alternate version of the Justice League story end where it pleases. It has put Superman in a sleek black suit instead of the iconic blue and red. He has added the Joker (Jared Leto). He has re-filmed the finale with a cameo from a hero who will blow the minds of hardcore fans.«.

Which character do you think has an unexpected appearance? Zack Snyder’s Justice League to premiere on HBO Max next march 18. According to reports, it will arrive in Mexico on the same date, through other digital platforms. Come on here to read the full note.

Toño Guzmán I have a very bad memory. Out of solidarity with my memories, I choose to lose myself too. Preferably in a movie theater.
