Someone has managed to snap a picture of Jared Leto showing off what looks to be an official image of himself as the Joker. Even though it’s a bit on the very small side (I needed to squint a little in order to take it all in), it gives us taste of what the Clown Prince of Crime will look like in director David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.
From the images you can see below, Leto’s Joker is wearing a white suit -- complete with the green hair and that creepy red grin -- that’s very reminiscent of the outfit the Joker wore in Frank Miller’s seminal comic-book mini-series The Dark Knight Returns. And since the look of Ben Affleck’s aging Caped Crusader in the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is also based on Miller’s work, it makes total sense they’d take inspiration from the same source, because shared DC Cinematic Universe, guys. Check it out:
Suicide Squad will be released in theaters on Aug. 5, 2016. What do you guys think of Jared Leto’s look as the Joker? And do I spy with my little eye that he seems to be holding a gun?
