David Ayer reveals Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad

5 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'

5 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 »

First Look At Leto’s Joker For ‘Suicide Squad’

6 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

So we’ve seen vague pictures of Leto going through the make-up process for his role as The Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad, but we’ve just been given the first complete look at the Clown Prince Of Crime, and it’s truly something to behold. Taking a completely different route, the look adds dentures, jewellery, and tattoos…lots and lots of tattoos, to a fairly classic look. This is obviously a Joker who has been active for quite some time, in-line with Affleck’s Batman.

It’s certainly a look that is going to divide opinion, but I really like that it’s going in a different direction. However, I just can’t imagine The Joker sitting down to get his ink done. This also goes further to establishing the darker world of DC, which contrasts with Marvel’s lighter superheroic action, which is something that has »

First Official Image Of Jared Leto's Joker Revealed

10 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We’ve had weeks of teases and haircut pictures, but now, on the 75th anniversary of the character’s first appearance in comics (April 25th, 1940, fact fans), Suicide Squad director David Ayer has posted the first proper look at Jared Leto as The Joker. Take a look, why don’t you?The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad @WarnerBrosEnt @DCComics pic.twitter.com/LZXz0x947Q— David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) April 25, 2015Boasting what looks like a cross between a punk and mid-‘90s rock aesthetic, the Leto-Joker certainly has the deranged visual aspects of the character down pat, including a lot of body art. We’re not sure he really needs the “damaged” tattoo on his forehead, but it’s The Joker… he plays by his own rules. Naturally, he'll have to undergo the traditional trial by fire from those who prefer earlier, funnier Jokers, but »

Jared Leto’s Joker: First Picture from Suicide Squad

11 hours ago | 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 »

First Look: Jared Leto as The Joker in David Ayer's 'Suicide Squad'

11 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Hahahahaha... Finally, after teasing photos of cutting the hair, David Ayer has revealed The Joker in full. Academy Award winning actor Jared Leto plays the DC villain in the upcoming movie Suicide Squad, that David Ayer is preparing to direct with one hell of a cast. Besides Leto, it has Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Scott Eastwood, Joel Kinnaman and Cara Delevingne. This first look is primarily just a promo shot, not an actual still from the film which just started shooting this month up in Toronto. He's got plenty of nice tattoos, that signature green hair, and a purple glove. You may also remember that other reference to The Killing Joke before this Joker reveal. This is a freaky way to introduce him, but damn does he look cool. David Ayer writes: "The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad" See the other cast »

Common Joins Stacked 'Suicide Squad' Roster

23 April 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you'd have told me yesterday the cast of Warner Bros. adaptation of Suicide Squad was already bursting at the seams with names, I'd have said, "Yup," but the movie's cast just got a little bit bigger as Common has joined the project in an unspecified role according to The Hollywood Reporter. Fresh off a Best Original Song win at the Oscars for his part in writing Selma's "Glory", the rapper joins what looks to be half of Hollywood in the supervillain team-up. The cast includes Jared Leto, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delavingne, Scott Eastwood, and more, including rumors that Ben Affleck and Jesse Eisenberg may make appearances in the film, if only to stop and say hello. The third entry in the DC Comics multiverse following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad is set between that film and 2012's Man of Steel. »

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. »

The Hollywood Reporter has broke the news that Oscar winning musician and actor Common (Selma) has joined the cast of DC and Warner Bros.Pictures’ Suicide Squad in a mystery role.

We wait with anticipation to see who the actor will play this time around.

22 April 2015 4:14 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

DC Comics' all-star Suicide Squad movie has yet another new member.

It's rapper-actor and Oscar winner Common - who has often been linked with a big-budget DC project of some kind, at one time even signing to play Green Lantern in a shelved Justice League movie.

Common will now officially join the DC shared film universe in writer-director David Ayer's super-villain team-up movie Suicide Squad, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

There is no word yet on who Common will play in the film, given that Warner Bros has declined to offer any official comment.

Common Joins The Cast Of David Ayer's Suicide Squad

22 April 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

THR report that Common will join the likes of Jared Leto, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, and many others in Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad, which is currently shooting in Toronto, Canada. Who he'll be playing is being kept under wraps for now, but considering the massive roster of DC baddies already set to feature in the movie, is it possible Common has been cast in a heroic role? John Stewart is a possibility (Common was actually set to play this character in the defunct "Justice League Mortal"), but my guess would be another member of Task Force X... Bronze Tiger perhaps? Chances are this won't stay secret for long so we'll be sure to update if we get any more information. Suicide Squad is set for an August 2016 release. »

Child 44 movie review: Stalin glance

22 April 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Overly complicated yet somehow anticlimactic, and constructed more with pat Hollywood pomp rather than the authentic grit it demands. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Tom Hardy, Soviet hero of World War II, solves murders in 1950s Russia. Well, actually, there could be no murders under Communism, or so everyone tells one another in Child 44, because that’s a crime of decadent Western capitalism. Nevertheless, there are a lot of boys dead under suspicious circumstances all over southwestern Russia. Based on a novel inspired by the same real-life Soviet serial-murder case that the far superior 1995 HBO movie Citizen X details, this is an odd duck of a film: overly complicated yet somehow anticlimactic, more concerned with professional and personal jealousies among elite military investigators in Moscow than with police procedural, »
