He was nursed back to health by the Amazon princess Diana, who fell in love with him and followed him when he returned to the outside world. »

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. »

‘Suicide Squad': First Cast Photo Revealed

8 April 2015 5:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Director David Ayer tweeted the first cast photo of “Suicide Squad” on Wednesday.

The star-studded group, which includes Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman and Jai Courtney, sat down for a table reading before the film starts shooting next week.

Jared Leto, who plays the Joker in the highly anticipated movie, was not part of the pre-production rehearsal as he is currently on tour with his band 30 Seconds to Mars.

Based on the DC comicbook, “Suicide Squad” centers on the team of supervillains who are given a chance at redemption by the government. The catch: Their mission will probably kill them all.

Smith plays Deadshot in the movie while Robbie will portray Harley Quinn. Davis, star of “How to Get Away with Murder,” co-stars as the lawful Amanda Waller.

Also featured in the movie are Cara Delevingne (Enchantress) and Kinnaman (Boomerang), in addition to Jim Parrack, Adam Beach, »
