Well, that highly anticipated moment is here. This is our first official look at Jared Leto as The Joker from the upcoming movie, Suicide Squad. The film also stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang. But it’s obvious that the film’s key element is the debut of this version of the Joker which will remain in the ongoing DC Cinematic Universe.
After a month of false alarms and fuzzy leaked photos-of-photos, directed David Ayer has dropped an official photo of our new big-screen Joker.
Today is the 75th anniversary of the comic book debut of The Joker in the first issue of Batman, so today is a great day to reveal Leto's character style. You can see the picture below. It is clearly going to be a rougher take on the iconic mastermind.
Update: Jared Leto is apparently sporting a different look on set. His skin has no tattoos, and there are no grills in his mouth. Apparently, his skin is covered in scars, presumably those he received from facing off against the Batman. If the tattoos will feature a role in the movie at all is unclear.
