That Twitter photo of Jared Leto as The Joker was merely a tease. Suicide Squad director David Ayer has upped the ante and, along with Warner Bros., shared a photo of Leto as The Joker in full costume. And he looks quite whacked!
Leto, as an Oscar winner, is surely more than qualified to step into a role that was previously played by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight and Jack Nicholson in Tim Burton’s Batman.
Leto is joined in Suicide Squad by Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress and Viola Davis as Amanda Walker.
Ayer is also a fantastic choice to helm the DC Comics/Warner Bros. production. The End of Watch and Fury filmmaker is more than primed to dive into the superhero pool.
Watch Fury online to check out his latest.
Suicide Squad is due August 5, 2016. What do you think of Leto's look?
