Finally we get our first glimpse at Jared Leto as the Joker. It looks amazing and has a lot of us fans on the edge of our seats. You get to see his neon green hair and a really grainy picture from set. It looks like he is wearing a white tuxedo. His Joker is really starting to remind me more of the Arkham Games Joker. I mean just look at this still from the [Batman: Arkham Series](tag:2586475).

So will the new Joker actually be similar to what we've grown accustom to in the game? For one thing, the Arkham games have been a great success and the story lines are actually movie worthy. So in thinking the WB wants to ride on the curtails of one of their most succesful game series, we might see some things cross over. Now obviously the movie won't be borrowing plot lines since we are starting a new movie universe. One thing I see them maybe stealing is how he becomes the Joker. Utilizing the Red Hood story and how his was a failing comedian and used to work at ACE chemicals. Really I would love to see a well done scene showing the creation of the monster we know as the Joker. Now they are going to fix the only thing Nolan failed to do with his Batman series.

The Joker needs to be a constant in Batman's world. Christopher Nolan couldn't have expected the death of Heath Ledger, and Nolan actually had plans to flesh out the Joker more. So now we have Jared Leto stepping into the role. He isn't even really a part of [Suicide Squad](movie:2283363) but they knew they had to have him. Batman is incomplete without the Joker. He needs him in essence to be who he is. Without the Joker, Batman is just another superhero. With the Joker they represent two sides of the coin. Joker is anarachy and Batman is justice.

So what other influences will the Joker have? I believe they will try to combine the Arkham Games Joker with the New 52 Joker. The new 52 Joker is quite literally the most macabre and twisted Joker. While the Arkham Games Joker is still twisted but with a slight touch of class. I think you will see that translate over to Jared Leto's performance. He will be bat shit insane, but with class. Only time will tell and hopefully as the year continues we finally get a trailer. Everyone who is a fan of the Joker, needs to see him live.

What do you want the Joker to be like?
