Remember a while back when Suicide Squad director tweeted put a photo of Jared Leto as The Joker who was covered in tattoos? Well if you do then you should also remember Ayer stating that The Joker will not have tattoos in the film. Well that apparent tattoo hoax seems to have been confirmed with recent set photos that were released revealing Mr J fully tatted up.
As you can see, The Joker has a tattoo that runs across his stomach. This is also the best look that we have gotten of Jared Leto in full Joker gear since filming began. The Joker also seems to have the caps on his teeth from the photo we saw earlier from David Ayer, possibly some sort of protection from Batman? Jared Leto looks absolutely amazing as The Joker, he fits the role very well and I can't wait to see him in action.
While it is a bit grainy, it looks like most of the tattoos from David Ayers tweets a while back are present here. He has a tattoo on his neck and it seems as if he even has "Damaged" written across his forehead. This a very tough version of Mr.J, possibly after a stint in Arkham?
As you can see, it looks as if Harley Quinn will be getting a bit of an origin story. Before becoming Harley Quinn she was a psychiatrist named Dr. Quinzel. It will be interesting to see how Dr. Quinzell becomes Harley Quinn and if they will stay true to the comics. Will the death of Jason Todd cause tension between the two?
Jared Leto has such a piercing stare, he looks really intimidating as The Joker and i can't think of anyone more fit for the role. Everything fans want from the Joker is summed up right here in this picture.
Is a Tattooed Joker a good idea?
Fans have been very split on the idea of a Joker covered in tattoos. They definitely seem like they are going for more of a rock star kind of look with The Joker. Which Jared Leto should do perfectly since he is the lead singer of 30 Seconds to Mars. I am definitely getting an Arkham Asylum vibe from seeing these photos. The tattoos I think are a very great idea, it fits with the modern age and its a nice twist to the character. To me the tattoos add to The Jokers twisted side and truly make him one to fear. The green hair seems spot on, and The Jokers iconic purple suit looks great. It will be interesting to see how things shake out but as of now things seem to be going really well.
