The character would reportedly be portrayed as "the psychiatrist at the prison where Joker is being held, and will have several scenes with both the Clown Prince of Crime and Harley Quinn", according to Latino Review's El Mayimbe, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Mayimbe shared the news on Instagram. In addition to the possible villain character, he shared other details about Jared Leto's Joker.
He posted: "I'm also told The Joker has a lot of scenes with HUGO STRANGE!" He's the psychiatrist at the prison & seems to be a part of the story yet I heard nothing of casting or mention of a single casting choice.
"Hugo Strange has quite a few interactions with the Joker & Harley Quinn. It's not the regular security. It's internal one on one thing. #THEJOKER #THEDARKKNIGHTRETURNS #JAREDLETO #HUGOSTRANGE #AMANDAWALLER #HARLEYQUINN #DC #DCCU #DCCOMICS #SCOOP #FIRE #BOOM (sic)."
Regarding Jared Leto's fictional character, Joker, Mayimbe wrote: "Today's #SUICIDESQUAD FIRE is all about Jared Leto's THE JOKER! So what I'm being told, Leto's Joker is most definitely based on THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS version.
"He's lean & scarred but his suit does have broad shoulders. Joker works out in his cell like an inmate when he is interrogated by Amanda Waller. He's doing hand stand push ups so it makes sense that Jared Leto said he is putting on weight. He's definitely not skinny, but in fact more muscular. He has bleached skin not make up. #SPOILER - He's killed one of Batman's sidekicks, there is a lot of references to his past crimes. He kills a lot of people. HUGE #RUMOR."
'Suicide Squad' stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress. The film is slated to release in US on August 5 2016.
