The newest issue of Empire Magazine will feature Jared Leto’s take on the Clown Prince of Crime in director David Ayer's upcoming Suicide Squad movie.

Thanks to the wonderful world of the Internet, we have a full body shot of Leto’s tattooed and barefooted Joker that gives us our best look yet at Batman’s foe. It’s interesting to note that he won’t be wearing the classic suit we usually see in the comics, but rather a purple "crocodile-skinned" leather coat and gym pants. However, as a nice callback to earlier versions of the villainous character, Leto also uses a (what else, purple!) walking cane.


Directed by David Ayer, Suicide Squad also stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Adam Beach as Slipknot and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo. The movie will open in theaters on Aug. 5, 2016.

What do you guys think of Jared Leto's controversial take on DC Comics' Joker? Are you looking forward to see the psycho villain in Suicide Squad?
