David Ayer’s Suicide Squad will show Jared Leto’s as the Joker for the first time. When the first image of Joker went online, it was amazingly quick to get viral. Some loved it some hated and some we're confused (like me) but started to love him when the trailer came out.

That line definitely left an impression on me, and the rest of the trailer was also awesome, of course, but Jared Leto, he just can't stop himself from impressing me.

This new Joker is covered in tattoos (which is likely inspired by Frank Miller and Jim Lee’s comic editions) and he has silver teeth. Now, another look at Joker – as well as other Suicide Squad characters including Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn – has been released.

"I'm not gonna kill ya... I'm just gonna hurt ya, really, really bad."

Empire magazine latest cover shows the Joker in his purple coat, with a cane in his hand, wearing Arkham Asylum sweat pants, and walking around barefoot. It also has the words “psycho” and “killer”, two words perfect to describe this villain, last incarnated by Heath Ledger. Just by looking at this new version of The Joker we now he's Dangerous.

Here's what he said:

I took a pretty deep dive. But this was a unique opportunity and I couldn't imagine doing it another way. It was fun, playing those psychological games. But at the same time it was very painful, like giving birth out of my prick hole.

It has been said for months that Jared keeps the character even outside of the studios, due to his dedication to the roll, and he even implied that he may have lost himself in the role to some extent, when he said that there we're some periods of detachment even during filming. People have noticed that he is acting different since he had this role given to him.

People even said they we're afraid of talking to him, and that's possibly the reason why his Joker is so awesome, because the character is very isolated and as it seems so is Jared in the passed times.

We know playing this character can be painful, we've seen it with Heath Ledger and now Jared Leto proves the same which makes me worried, that he's harming himself so he can play this character, no matter how great he is.

Now we just have to wait and see for ourselves what this crazy times for Jared will bring of good to us.
