In the past week and a half or so, we have been treated to multiple paparazzi photos of Jared Leto as the Joker. From photos of Leto rocking the Jokers infamous green locks, to blurry cell phone images in what seemed to be Leto as the Joker in full costume. Within the last hour, on the day of The Joker's 75th birthday, director of Suicide Squad David Ayer tweeted official photos of Leto in character. As you can see in the image above, they definitely are going with a different twist on the character. With multiple tattoos covering his body, they seem to be going with a modern, more bad ass Joker. He definitely seems to be The Joker of todays world.
This Isn't The Joker we all know
There is much speculation that this Joker will be the joker from the famed storyline "Death in the Family". If this speculation is true, this is The Joker that killed Robin. I can definitely see this being the case, i wasn't sure that you could make the Joker look much more maniacal than he already is. With Joker related tattoos covering his body and what looks to be fake teeth, this is not our normal everyday Joker. I wasn't sure that i could get much more excited for Suicide Squad, but thank's to Director David Ayer, my excitement is beyond belief. I believe that this is exactly what fans wanted and expect from a new Joker. Only time will tell if how this new Joker will turn out, but one thing is for sure, he is CRAZY!
This is our Joker everyone!
