Will Suicide Squad Show Joker’s Origin?


While Batman’s origin story has been told time and time again onscreen, that of his greatest foe, The Joker, while well known, hasn’t been shown all that often. We saw it happen way back in the 1989 Batman film with Jack Nicholson as the clown prince of crime, but in The Dark Knight Heath Ledger’s Joker just appeared as if brought to life by chaos itself. I don’t think the birth of Joker has been shown in any of the various animated TV shows & movies either. But Suicide Squad may be the first time since 1989 that we see the birth of the Joker on a big screen again.

Essentially, various cast & crew members of Suicide Squad have been posting pictures on Instagram of a particular set that is most definitely Ace Chemicals. Granted, a lot of stuff has gone down at Ace Chemicals over the years, but the “birth” of the clown prince of crime in the most infamous. Check out the pics below:

Unlike say the murder of Martha & Thomas Wayne, again we’ve only seen the Joker origin on screen once before, so it’d be a welcome thing to see again in Suicide Squad, which opens August 5th, 2016.
