Zack Snyder Addresses Suicide Squad Continuity With The Joker

The new photos of the Joker for Zack Snyder’s Justice League show Leto sans-tattoos sporting long, dark hair, a hospital gown and mask, and a bulletproof vest covered in law enforcement badges — a far cry from the last time we saw Leto as the Joker in the Suicide Squad with his short, bright green hair and facial tattoos.
But from these comments, it doesn’t seem like Snyder is concerned about connective storytelling.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Snyder said:

“I would say that there’s been some water under the bridge. Who knows what’s happened. I don’t know if he’s wearing makeup, I don’t know what’s happening. It’s hard to say exactly.”Snyder’s comment about water under the bridge says just as much about his relationship with Warner Bros. than it does the Joker. What came before in the DCEU is irrelevant to the story he’s setting out to tell.

In a way, he and the studios are on the same page in treating this highly-anticipated cut as a true standalone project that’s more about his vision for the characters and their story than actual continuity.
