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

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 seen AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON come under fire for, with constant quips from every character.

The Joker will have to remain a supporting character for now though, as BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE will focus on the two heroes going one-on-one, while SUICIDE SQUAD will see a different team of villains join forces and probably leave The Joker behind because he’s too damn crazy.

SUICIDE SQUAD is released 5th August 2016. It stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, and Jared Leto.

Luke likes many things, films and penguins being among them. He's loved films since the age of 9, when STARGATE and BATMAN FOREVER changed the landscape of modern cinema as we know it. His love of film extends to all aspects of his life, with trips abroad being planned around film locations and only buying products featured in Will Smith movies. His favourite films include SEVEN SAMURAI, PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC, IN BRUGES, LONE STAR, GODZILLA, and a thousand others.

    It’s funny how no one can compliment anything about WB/DC without taking a shot at Marvel. #1 – WB, Fox and Sony are all trying to copy Marvel, to some degree. #2 – I don’t think Marvel cares what anyone else is doing….they are leaders in this field, not followers….they don’t need to worry about distinguishing themselves from anyone else….they just make good movies. #3 – the dark, gritty thing works easily for Batman and not so much for most of the other DC characters…you can’t just turn everyone into Batman…..Superman, Flash, Hal Jordan, etc. are not supposed to be “dark” characters and Man of Steel exposed this problem….and “realistic” superheroes are easy to do when it’s Batman who has no superpowers, but most of the rest have pretty incredible powers…it remains to be seen if just copying the Nolan/Dark Knight formula for 15 movies will work.

    I think that DC have to go a different route to the fluffy, glossy Marvel one. Marvel have to abide by ‘some’ of the family Disney values too, while DC have not such constraints. They can afford to be darker, but they HAVE to be different. Whether they will be as successful remains to be seen.
