What Do You Think of Jared Leto's Joker?

By Tom Pritchard on at

Earlier this morning we got our first glimpse at one of the stars of DC's Suicide Squad movie. This is Jared Leto as The Joker, and it's a very different Joker to everything we've seen on film before, naturally.

He does have a very strong Marilyn Manson-esque look about him, and it just screams that this man is incredibly unbalanced, but he also looks like he can be extremely dangerous. If I were to guess I'd say the filmmakers were trying to emulate Heath Ledger's Joker, but in a far less serious manner.

That said, I personally think they've gone a bit overboard with the design. The tattoos and the teeth seem a bit much, but we will have to see how it all pans out on the big screen.

Suicide Squad is set to hit cinemas in August of next year. [Forbes]
