What's up Dacetacular Nation? It has been some time since yours truly has brought you some news in the world of geekdom, and boy do I have a treasure nugget for you.

The Joker to appear in Superman vs. Batman?For the longest time, rumors suggested that Marvel was eying Oscar winner Jared Leto for the role of Stephen Strange. That has seemingly been put to rest, with more recent reports that Benedict Cumberbatch is in final talks to land the role. Don't count Leto out yet, though, when it comes to entering into the comic book movie genre.

It was being reported by The Wrap that Warner Bros. is courting Leto to play The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. Granted, the majority of the film has yet to be cast, with the only certainty being Jesse Eisenberg, but what do you think of Leto taking the reigns of an iconic character such as The Joker?

The role has been portrayed in various versions, from the dark and gritty Heath Ledger Joker in The Dark Knight to the eccentric version Jack Nicholson played in Batman (1989) and more jovial roots in the 1960s version portrayed by Cesar Romero.

Sound off, Fanboys and Fangirls and let us know what you think of the latest casting rumor on the interwebs! Would Jared Leto be a good fit for the role, or do you have someone else in mind that you think could do better?
