David Ayer reveals Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Director David Ayer has released the first image of Jared Leto’s Joker from the third film in the DC Cinematic Universe, Suicide Squad. It’s a definite departure from Heath Ledger’s Oscar-winning portrayal of the character…

First impressions are often misleading, as many fans were shocked by the early behind-the-scenes photos of Ledger. No doubt these very strong choices by Ayer will lead to some polarizing reactions from fans.

I’m guessing this might break the internet in half.

What do you think about the new Joker?

Suicide Squad is set for release on August 5th 2016, and features a cast that includes Will Smith (Focus) as Deadshot, Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as The Joker, Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, , Joel Kinnaman (RoboCop) as Rick Flagg, Viola Davis (How to get Away with Murder) as Amanda Waller, »

First Official Picture of Jared Leto as The Joker in 'Suicide Squad'

22 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Suicide Squad director David Ayer took to Twitter on Friday evening to offer up the first look at Jared Leto as The Joker in the upcoming DC Comics Multiverse feature, as the Oscar winner is sporting several tats including the word "Damaged" across his forehead. I'm not necessarily familiar with the variety of Jokers found in the comic books, but this definitely has the appearance of being far afield Heath Ledger's version in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight and even appears to be far more zany than Jack Nicholson's portrayal in Tim Burton's Batman (1989). In fact, they appear to be going a whole new route, almost the permanently psychologically damaged version if I'm reading this look correctly... am Ic That said, while I've never read a "Batman" comic book in my life, I'm well aware of Alan Moore's "Killing Joke", which seems to be the »

Jared Leto’s Joker Officially Revealed in Suicide Squad Image

24 April 2015 9:52 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

To celebrate the Clown Prince of Crime's 75th birthday, director David Ayer gave those looking forward to Suicide Squad a fitting present: the first full, official look at Jared Leto as The Joker.

Ayer revealed the eye-popping photo on Twitter, showing a shirtless Joker wearing one purple glove (pressed against his green hair) with eyes wide and chrome-toothed mouth open wide in what looks to be a crazed laugh. His chest and arms are covered in tattoos, and his forehead is marked with one telling word: "Damaged."

Time will tell if Leto's performance can come anywhere near the intensely immersive depths of Heath Ledger's mesmerizing turn as the character in 2008's The Dark Knight, but the new take on the Harlequin of Hate is certainly memorable.

Shooting on Suicide Squad is currently underway with Ayer in the director’s chair and Charles Roven and Richard Suckle producing. Warner Bros. »

Jared Leto’s Joker: First Picture from Suicide Squad

24 April 2015 6:06 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We got a fuzzy shot of Jared Leto referencing The Joker’s appearance in Alan Moore’s The Killing Joke and another one showing off his bright green hair, but it's finally time to see the complete look because David Ayer just unveiled the very first Suicide Squad image of Leto in full costume as The Joker on Twitter. I expected something extreme, but I certainly wasn't imagining something quite like this. (Did The Joker have a grill in the source material?) Regardless, this shot is definitely striking to say the least and also has me believing the guy is an absolute lunatic, which is clearly a step in the right direction. However, it wasn't Heath Ledger's hair, makeup and wardrobe that sold the character in The Dark Knight. It was his insanely committed, haunting performance and Leto's certainly got his work cut out for him if he's going »

Common Cast in 'Suicide Squad,' Which May Include a Batman Cameo

23 April 2015 6:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Oscar-winning rapper Common has just joined the cast of "Suicide Squad."

The Hollywood Reporter writes that the "Selma" singer and star has just closed a deal to join director David Ayer's supervillain team-up flick. There's been no word yet on just what role he'll be playing; studio Warner Bros. declined to comment on THR's report.

Production on "Suicide" is already underway in Toronto, so perhaps Common's role is just a small one. Either way, his involvement brings even more star power to the already-stacked ensemble, which features a host of big names, including Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Ike Barinholtz, Adam Beach, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Karen Fukuhara.

According to THR, whispers of Jesse Eisenberg making an appearance as Lex Luthor continue. But one other recognizable hero may also drop in: Ben Affleck's Batman.

Stay tuned to see if either rumor comes to fruition. »

Suicide Squad: New Photos Of Jared Leto Sporting His Green 'Joker' Hair

20 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We're still not sure if that recent image of Leto seemingly showing a pal a pic of himself in full character as The Joker is legit, but these pics taken by Just Jared certainly are. True he's only in his civvies here, but his shining green hair is on display beneath his hat. Nothing particularly revealing given we've already had that selfie from the actor, but it's something to keep us talking while we await that official image of the character many seem to feel must be on the way. Directed by David Ayer from his script, Suicide Squad stars Will Smith (Deadshot), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), Jared Leto (the Joker), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Jessie Eisenberg (Lex Luthor), and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), with Raymond Olubawale (King Shark), Jay Hernandez, Ike Barinholtz, Jim Parrack, Adam Beach, and Scott Eastwood. »

20 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A majority of the official plot details on David Ayer’s Suicide Squad remain firmly under lock and key. However, thanks to a preponderance of rumors and speculation, an overall image is beginning to take shape as to what we may see in the supervillain team-up. Today’s latest tidbit hails from the most prolific source of info on the movie, Latino Review’s El Mayimbe, who has acquired further intel on one of the film’s newest arrivals.

One of the latest cast members officially announced to join the ensemble was Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who is slated to play Killer Croc. Amid those initial reports were tiny shards of detail, pointing toward the direction in which Ayer may take the villainous character, but nothing concrete. And while a rumor can’t be classed as “official verification,” this crop of fresh details originate from a source with a solid track record for scoops. »

The Joker: Jared Leto teases his new look

16 April 2015 10:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The green hair and the smeared red lipstick is present and correct, as Jared Leto teases his Joker...

Warner Bros has lots of new takes on DC Comics characters arriving on the big screen these coming years. And it's tended to reveal them through official Twitter accounts of Zack Snyder, and in the case of the Batmobile for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, through a tie-in promotion to a camera.

In the case of the latest glimpse of The Joker in David Ayer's Suicide Squad film, actor Jared Leto has teased his latest look via a Snapchat picture. It's obviously not quite the finished article, but the green hair and the smeared lipstick is already in place, as you can see below...

Anyway, we thought you might like to see that pic. Hence this article.

Suicide Squad moves into production shortly, and it'll also see Will Smith, Viola Davis, »
