It is officially the 75th Anniversary of Batman’s greatest foe, and the greatest villain in comics….The Joker! To celebrate, Suicide Squad director David Ayer has released the first official image of actor Jared Leto as The Joker. My thoughts; It’s different, it’s chaotic, it’s unsettling. He looks insane, and quite frankly bat shit crazy! All qualities essential to The Joker by the way! His skin is so pale it looks perma-white. His mouth is filled with crowns, probably from having his teeth knocked out by Batman. The tattoo’s add to the “beautiful disaster” that is this Joker. While making things unique and new, the director has honoured classic Joker with the shade of green in his hair and the purple glove. WOW….I can not wit to see Jared Leto bring this iteration of The Joker to life!
