First Look: Jared Leto’s Joker Revealed

Jared Leto’s Joker transformation for The Suicide Squad has been closely watched.  David Ayers has revealed the first official photo of Jared Leto’s Joker, and he looks… interesting.  It all started with the haircut, which changed to a bright green.  A couple blurry photos later, we get our first glimpse at the final product.

Personally I’m not crazy about the tattoos, but I’m sure The Joker won’t be shirtless for much of the movie, sorry ladies. But overall, I’m optimistic.  This is the third integration of Joker on the big-screen (not counting the original 1966 Batman), and every take has been unique.  However mind-numbingly interesting this has been, it’s slightly ridiculous how closely we’ve been watching Jared Leto’s decent into becoming Batman’s most well-known foe.   But hey, it is The Joker.

You can check out the early stages of transformation here.

The Suicide Squad lineup looks like this:

Will Smith as Deadshot

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

Cara Delevingne as Enchantress

Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc

Viola Davis as Amanda Waller

Suicide Squad opens in theaters August 5, 2016.

Voices and opinions on the new-look Joker will inevitably be strong, so let us know what you guys think.  And if you could care less, you can let us know as well.
