Ladies and Gentlemen, Director David Ayer has taken to social media and posted the first official look at Jared Leto as "Mr. J" aka The Joker, from his upcoming 'Suicide Squad' movie that stars some pretty high octane talent, including the likes of Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Joel Kinnaman.
Some reports say this was a forced move after clever paparazzi photos of Leto showing his friends images of himself as "The Joker" via cell phone, leaked onto the internet.
Mixed reviews are coming in on this new image of the Joker, and I must say, it appears that it will definitely be taking on a different tone and direction then Nolan went in the Dark Knight Trilogy. But as it should. It has been said that Leto's Joker will parallel closer to the Joker of the comics. Which will ultimately tie into the "Frank Miller world" that Zack Snyder is building via 'DOJ'
I for one am excited, and can't wait to see what the first trailer for 'Suicide Squad' has to offer.
Without further adieu, here's our new Joker!!
