This week’s comic is inspired by the frenzy that is Jared Leto’s casting as the new Joker. The latest bit everyone is over-examining is a Vine in which he says “crazy” a little weird, with no additional context to nudge us into thinking it has anything to do with the Joker outside of wild fanboy speculation. Add to that the reports that he will have no eyebrows, and that his current hairstyle will obviously reflect the Joker’s own hair, and you have some of the most desperate crap I’ve seen in a while.
Listen, guys. I know you’re all excited about the Joker. I am as well. But movies have a lot put into them. Just because he uses a funny voice to say “crazy” at a concert does not mean that’s any indication of how he’ll play the Joker. And just because his eyebrows are either shaved off or invisible from his bleach job doesn’t mean the Joker will have no eyebrows. It could very well mean they’ll be using false ones. And the ways he wears his hair in his personal time is certainly no certain indication of how the on-set hairstylists will handle it. Just chill out. We’ll have something official before you know it, and trying to pick apart every move the man makes is just kind of sad.
