The internet is in overdrive the last 13 hours, reacting to David Ayer taking to his twitter to give the world the first look of Jared Leto in the role of iconic villain The Joker for the upcoming Suicide Squad film. The tweet comes on the day of celebrating the 75th anniversary of the character and you can see the new look of the Clown Prince of Crime below:
In terms of the overall look I’m not a fan of a few things. Primarily the ones I have issue with are the two tattoos, the ‘HAHAHAHAHA’ one and then there’s the ‘Damaged’ one on the forehead, the latter hardly being subtle. In terms of Jared Leto in the role of a crazy lunatic like The Joker I’m still sure we’ll do a fine job, but at first impressions of this new look Joker, it’ll take some getting used to.
