HOLLYWOOD – Daniel Day-Lewis will come out of retirement to play The Joker in James Gunn’s Suicide Squad 2.
According to a studio insider, Day-Lewis has been secretly preparing for the role for the last two months:
“People think he’s gone method before, but they ain’t seen nothing yet”, said the insider.
“On the first day of prep he took a swan dive into a vat of toxic waste and from there, well, things got a little crazy.”
According to the source, Day-Lewis murdered the head of the New York mafia with an electrified joy buzzer and is now running the criminal underworld.
“It was a little shocking at first, if you pardon the pun”, said the mafia source.
“But I have to say the guy gets shit done. I’ve never seen so much money and okay, so he does wacky things like blowing up hospitals and spraying random children with his acid flower but hey, you can’t make an omelette without breaking some eggs.”
According to another source, Day-Lewis has got so immersed in the role that the authorities are looking for a way to bring his reign of terror to an end:
“They’re thinking of putting Nicholas Cage in the batsuit and sending him after Day-Lewis. I think the idea is that it takes a maniac to catch a maniac.”
Suicide Squad 2 is due in 2020
