Jared Leto's Joker in Suicide Squad Was Inspired by David Bowie
Jared Leto has revealed that his portrayal of Joker in the film Suicide Squad was partly inspired by glam-rock icon David Bowie.

Los Angeles: Actor-musician Jared Leto has revealed that his portrayal of Joker in the film Suicide Squad was partly inspired by glam-rock icon David Bowie, who passed away in January.

Leto, who is also the frontman of the rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars, said that Bowie can be an inspiration for almost anything, reports ew.com.

"I think David Bowie's probably an inspiration for, like, almost anything you could do creatively," Leto told NME magazine.

In developing his take on the iconic DC Comics villain, Leto said: “We discussed David Bowie a bit -- not necessarily the music of David, but his class, his elegance, his timelessness".

Leto also said he would love to see his Bowie-inspired Joker get his own standalone movie.

“I think that would be great to dive in deeper to the Joker and expand the story and to learn a bit more about this sick and twisted, but lovely, strange man," he added.
