When the release of a film is highly anticipated, many things occur until the movie actually debuts: trailers upon trailers slowly leaking more footage for fans to see, photos taken from the set of the film’s shooting to get a behind-the-scenes exclusive, and the star of the show making the talk show rounds. But do you really want to know exactly how you know you’ve made it big? Your film’s soundtrack gets a rap song.
“Gonna Fly Now“, also known as “Theme from Rocky,” has become synonymous with Stallone’s Rocky Balboa. Who didn’t love Vanilla Ice’s “Ninja Rap” for “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze.” Heck, we even got “Deadpool Rap” from Ryan Reynolds’ hit film. Apparently we will be getting a song specifically made for Suicide Squad‘s soundtrack and Jared Leto’s Joker will be featured.
Leto has been keeping his fans guessing as he has made almost cryptic posts to social media. His first was his tweet announcing his arrival in Miami, Florida. The second were photos of Leto in his Joker attire, which were posted on Snapchat and Twitter.
HELLO MIAMI! Long time no see xo

According to a report from Batman News, Leto was in Miami to shoot a music video for Rick Ross and Skrillex. The new song, the name of which is unknown but IMDB.com is calling it ‘Suicide Squad,’ will be available on the Suicide Squad soundtrack. The video will be featuring the Joker so it’s anyone’s guess just how crazy Leto might get.
Check out Skrillex playing this brand new collaboration with Rick Ross on 4/2/2016 at WAV Nightclub in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It can be a little difficult to hear at times, but you get a feel for the sound they’re bringing and listen for references to The Joker, such as the words “Killer Croc,” “Gotham City,” and the phrase “got that purple Lamborghini lurkin,” which we’ve seen him drive in the trailers.
Suicide Squad arrives in theaters on August 5th.
