Jared Leto Gets a Shave and a Haircut for 'Suicide Squad' (Photos)

12 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jared Leto's long flowing locks and bushy beard are no more: The actor has gotten a new clean-cut look in preparation for his role as The Joker in "Suicide Squad."

"Suicide" director David Ayer ("Fury") had teased earlier in the week that there would be a development happening sometime on Monday, which turned out to be that Leto had finally decided to give up the Jesus look and get a shave and a haircut for the flick. Ayer took to Twitter to post both a before pic -- jokingly asking if he should sever Leto's long ponytail while scissors hovered nearby -- and an after shot, and the results are pretty shocking.

Jared Leto has his locks snipped ready for Joker role in Suicide Squad

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After taking to Twitter to tease some big upcoming news regarding his DC film Suicide Squad, David Ayer has revealed two new tweets which show a pre and post-snipped Oscar winner Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club) as he prepares to start work in the film as The Joker.

In the photos, Leto is shown getting his trademark long-haired locks snipped away to make way for a shorter style, one that is synonymous with many of the comic-book interpretations of the character, and different to the longer, ragged style of Heath Ledger’s Oscar winning performance in 2008’s The Dark Knight.

Leto joins an all-star cast in the film, alongside Will Smith (Focus) as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman (Robocop) as Rick Flagg, Jai Courtney (Terminator Genisys) as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne (The Face of an Angel) as Enchantress, Viola Davis (Blackhat) as Amanda Waller and Margot Robbie (Focus) as The Joker’s “little lady” Harley Quinn. »

'Suicide Squad' Director Teases Jared Leto's Joker Transformation

2 March 2015 9:17 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Suicide Squad director David Ayer teased on his Twitter page yesterday that "something will happen" today for his upcoming comic book adaptation, which starts principal photography next month in Toronto. The director's tweet was coupled with a photo of actor Jared Leto, who sent out an Instagram stating that he had just arrived in Toronto. There was speculation that the actor's arrival meant that he could be in town for costume fittings and/or to get a haircut and shave, since the actor/musician's long-haired and bearded look isn't exactly befitting of The Joker in the comic books. This morning, David Ayer sent out a photo of of the actor's hair in a ponytail about to be cut off, while the actor himself sent out a tweet late last night, saying that he misses his beard already.

Just last week, the actor showed off his incredibly long hair for what »

Margot Robbie Likens David Ayer’s Suicide Squad To The Dark Knight

2 March 2015 8:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If there was ever an in-development project that could be sold on cast alone, it’s David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Having assembled Will Smith, Jared LetoCara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman — in lieu of Tom Hardy — and Margot Robbie, there’s no doubting the film’s star power, and during a recent interview with MTV, the latter actress talked about the movie’s innate tone.

Granted, Ayer’s superhero flick is yet to enter production, and while the director has teased a reveal for later today, there’s still an awful lot we don’t know about Warner Bros.’ villain-centric tale. However, according to Robbie, the tone that the studio is aiming for is akin to that found in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.

“I think on a scale of like, ‘The Dark Knight’ is here and ‘The Avengers’ is here, I think it’s more on the ‘Dark Knight’ side of things. »

Viola Davis talks playing Amanda Waller in Suicide Squad

2 March 2015 8:17 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was rumoured for a while, but confirmed by the woman herself, that Viola Davis (How To Get Away With Murder) would be portraying Amanda Waller in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. While we wait to see what Mr. Ayer has in store with his announcement today, Viola Davis has been talking about taking on the movie.

“As a comic book and Wonder Woman fan, I love the whole DC Comics universe,” Davis told The Hollywood Reporter. “I traded comic books as a kid so all of that appeals to me. When you dream about being an actor as a kid, that’s what you dream about. That’s like play acting: being the superhero, getting the gun; it plays into that fantasy.”

How to Get Away with Murder changed my exposure,” Davis added. “I don’t know if it changed the quality of roles as much as it changed the exposure. »

The crew have all assembled in Toronto for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad as production is set to begin. Ayer has been tweeting out some of the set photos (which you can check out below) and also had some words about his new vision for The Joker.

1 March 2015 10:38 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, Suicide Squad director David Ayer revealed on his Twitter account that "something will happen" tomorrow for his highly-anticipated comic book adaptation. Since production doesn't begin until next month in Toronto, tomorrow's mystery reveal won't likely be any footage, but it's possible that we could get our first photo of the cast in their super villain costumes. It's also possible that we could get the official logo for Suicide Squad.

Jared Leto, who is set to play The Joker in Suicide Squad, also revealed on his Instagram page that he is in Toronto, possibly for costume fittings and to get a shave and a haircut in preparation for his role. It isn't known if the rest of the cast are also in Toronto as well, such as Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller »

Margot Robbie didn’t audition for Suicide Squad, says it’s more Dark Knight than The Avengers

27 February 2015 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With production on David Ayer’s Suicide Squad set to begin in April, we will be hearing a lot from the cast members involved over the next few months. We’ve heard from Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) on several occasions over the past couple of weeks while she is on the promotional tour for Focus (read our review here) and we’ve now got some more insights from her on the role.

“I actually got offered this one, I didn’t audition, which is a real step up as an actor when you can get offered things,” she told MTV News before adding that she, “didn’t have to do chemistry reads or anything like that.”

Robbie, who is signed on to play Harley Quinn for the next ten years, was also asked about the tone of the movie.

Margot Robbie Compares 'Suicide Squad' to 'Dark Knight'

26 February 2015 4:59 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Focus will be in theaters this Friday, which means our wealth of Suicide Squad quotes will soon run dry as Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn, and Will Smith, the man who promises to give us the greatest Deadshot in the history of comic books, leave their press tour behind to actually start filming. But we still have one more day, which means one more piece of insightful information, offering a tease of what director David Ayer has in store for this DC Comics super villain adventure.

Speaking with MTV, Margot Robbie was asked where Suicide Squad falls in the spectrum of superhero movies. Will it be dark, serious and somber like Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight? Or will it be colorful and fun like Marvel's The Avengers? This being a DC Comics movie, her answer shouldn't surprise you:
