David Ayer gives us our first official look at Jared Leto as The Joker

04.24.2015

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of The Joker, and to get a jump on the inevitable blurry set photos, our first official look at Jared Leto as The Joker from David Ayer's SUICIDE SQUAD has been released and...well, he's something that's for sure. David Ayer unveiled Jared Leto's new look just moments ago so scroll down and let us know what you think of the new clown prince of crime!

He certainly looks quite different than any other version of The Joker we've seen on screen thus far and I suppose there's something to be said for not treading in the same waters, but this look will definitely take a bit of getting used to. That said, it definitely has me intrigued and eager to see more of Jared Leto's take on The Joker.

SUICIDE SQUAD is currently shooting in Toronto and will arrive in theaters on August 5, 2016.

I've seen some images where people have digitally removed the tattoos, and it looks phenomenal. I really wish they had stuck with a less is more approach as far as ink goes. I'd totally be ok with the ha's... But it's all too much. I mean, the damaged tattoo hurts.

I want to like it, because its usually the actor that makes the character not the makeup. That being said, there's something way too joel schumacher-y about it. Usually don't judge early, but I'm gonna pass on this one

The joker as a character is deranged psychotic and mentally unhinged. This look captures all of that in a modern way. I love how each incarnation of the joker is fresh and new. Nobody does it the way it has already been done. Ceasar Romero had his take, Jack Nicholson gave him cartoonish menace. Heath Ledger gave hive a terrorist plotter philosopher take. Leto seems to be taking on a Maniac, unhinged and unpredictable. The teeth do it for me here. Like he's been in prison and had his

Exactly, if he didn't tattoo 'Damaged' on his forehead how would anyone know that he's crazy? And if he didn't tattoo Joker artwork from the comics all over his body, how else would anyone know that he is the Joker? And if he didn't tattoo the J tear drop under his eye, how else would anyone know that he killed someone in prison?

@Mr. Moe...Gee...could he perhaps have sickly bleached out white skin, green hair, a stretched smile and laugh like a maniac at off color stuff and have an ego as big as the outdoors? Don't think that's enough for everyone to think he's the Joker or insane?

C'mon...go back to the origin of the character.

I absolutely love the new look. I mean it is fresh and imaginative. I love ho wit is unlike Heath or Jack. It is its own thing. Leto is going to take the role somewhere fresh.

This is not cool

Why? Why are they making him look like he came straight out of the Marilyn Manson music video for Tainted Love?

Just awful. Hopefully he'll hardly be in the movie or they'll pay attention to the negative feedback and change his design.

Not to say ayers movies are bad, but almost all the characters are super annoying. I enjoyed Christian Bale in harsh times because he was so annoying, but I don't want to hate the Joker. This looks like a Joker I'll hate, and I'm only basing that on the other white tat'd up characters in his movies. If the Joker says homes or essay once I riot.

So what's the likelihood that WB/DC sees consistant negative fan reactions online and make subtle changes to the design, like getting rid of that 'damaged' forehead tattoo and being all like "okay, Leto, if having those Hot Topic tattoo makes you feel 'in character' then so be it, but you're wearing clothes the whole time so nobody will see them and the people spoke- that damaged tattoo is getting x-nay'd faster than Qwikster died.

Well, here's my two cents. As has often been the case with the Joker, it's an image you can't exactly unsee. The self-referential tattoos are the equivalent of a tease. A "Ha ha, made ya look!" kind of joke.

A coworker of mine who is a bona fide geek read into it that the grill could e because he gets punched in the teeth by Batman so much (not sure that's exactly how grills work, but okay), and that "Damaged" might be a nod to Harley Quinn. He also concedes he may be reading too much into

It could go both ways - sucks or rocks. I will decide when I see him in action.

Gonna see Bats V. Supes for sure. But this?

Ayer made me want to see this. But I haven't been able to shake how save for Smith, Robbie, and Davis, I feel like the cast rings of low frequency, reboot/sequel carrion. I gave Leto some leeway, yet all I can hear from this picture is a BTS interview with exec producer Zack Snyder dribbling crap like, "so many versions...we really wanted to put a modern twist on...", "...always had a sort of rock star vibe, and felt that Jared ...". For the sake of their universe, I hope this flick succeeds,

I haven't been happy with Robbie's casting since the beginning. She's a fine actress (and hot), but has never done anything that shows she can play a convincing Harley (and I don't want crap shaky cam to make up for the fact that she can't adequately pretend to throw a punch). She could have turned me around by talking about the action aspects of the character and how she's preparing, but there literally hasn't been one story or Instagram photo demonstrating that she's taking this seriously.

People freaked out about Gadot as WW (despite her actually being a trained fighter), but at least she is out there showing that she's working out to improve her physique for the role.

Oh yeah, Cara Delevingne isn't an actress and Jai Courtney sucks. So there is every chance this thing is going to be a train wreck.

I know and understand they wanted to take the Joker in a different direction, much like Ledger's incarnation was tonally different from Nicholson's, and I do believe that is the right choice. Unfortunately, even after staring at this for the past day, I still think it is just awful. Leto is a great choice to play Mr. J, and I think given the right script and director, his performance can/will shine. But as so many people pointed out: there is no subtly. Basically they thought it a good idea to

Basically they thought it a good idea to break the fourth wall and graffiti that shit all over his body. Honestly, the only tattoo I could imagine on the Joker would be half finished, or a hodgepodge affair, because he keeps killing the damn tattoo artist. (And does ANYONE actually like the grill?) I guess the only question now is if Bruce Wayne will have the bat logo as a tramp staff and Dark Knight tattooed on his knuckles.

He looks more like he would be one of Jokers obsessed minions, than the Joker. He does not look terrifying in the least, the only reason you would avoid him in the dark alley is because you know he is begging for money to buy crack. And like everyone else that damaged tattoo is straight ridiculous, it's as if he had a talk with Bill Engvall and took him too serious. "Here's your sign."

David Ayer needs to stop trying to make his characters look so tough and gangster-ish. We didn't buy it on Sam Worthington, and I sure as hell don't buy it on this pretentious pretty boy trying to look all hardcore.

Amen, brother! Those tats on Ahnuld in Sabotage were AWFUL. Also Ayer's dialogue is only as strong as the actors delivering it or the director translating it. End of Watch was award worthy between the two leads. The gang bangers, though? It felt like a DTV gangster flick from 1998 starring Coolio and Tone Loc. Christian Bale was WAY better than anything else in Hard Times. Bottom line: Ayer has insane raw talent but needs oversight to reign him in, keep him focused, making the difference

Bottom line: Ayer has insane raw talent but needs oversight to reign him in, keep him focused, making the difference between crap like Sabotage and solid work like Dark Blue or Training Day. I think Suicide Squad is "safe" from the pitfalls of Ayer's limitations as both a writer and director, because it will have to tie in with the DC Cinematic Universe aka all the stuff leading up to the JLA movies, meaning certain elements are out of Ayer's control because he's replicating other people's creations. But yes, those tattoos suck something awful.

I like it. It's new and it's different, but that doesn't mean it's bad. DC is clearly trying to do something different with their cinematic universe and make it a lot more dark and gritty than Marvel. This look seems to work. The only nitpick, I don't like "damaged" tattooed across his forehead.

There is a limit though for "dark and gritty" just like there is a limit to how colorful Marvel can be before people have a hissyfit.

This Joker doesn't look original and almost is out of character for the "dark and gritty" tone. This looks like a Marvel villain in some ways. It looks like a child friendly Joker, there is nothing gritty about him. He looks like someone who is out of touch with the world thought this design up.

I still would like to believe this was just for the anniversary, but I recall seeing a paparazzi shot of Leto out of costume showing someone some footage on a smart phone and I thought the photo showed him wearing a really busy leotard, but turns out it was this photo...so either it's special or it's part of his final get up. I just hope he mostly wears the purple suit and that 'Damaged' tattoo isn't distracting.

I'm glad they didn't stick with the same formula

If they went with the traditional model, you people would STILL complain, saying "been there, done that."
Ledger topped this character off already, so I think the only direction to go would be sideways. I think Jared's take will be his own, and the look reminds me of The Warriors. So maybe he will be more of a street punk with a maniacal intelligence. Quit complaining and wait for the end result, then you can bitch all you want.

Also, it's just a movie that none of us will ever make a dime from. So perhaps we should wait to see it first.

A grill? Damaged tattoo? And ur trademark tatted? I think I hate this. And back to the rumor he is doing one handed push-ups - he's not a cliche prisoner covered in tats. And that's not what makes him intimidating. Psychopath, not gangster. I think this is Ayer's doing.

He fell into a vat of hot topic...

I didn't know Joker was Marilyn Manson's brother.
I didn't know the insane clown posse was relevant again.
It looks like this Joker likes to get drunk and then go get tattoos done on his face. I bet my life he has a tramp stamp too.
Oh man, I bet his parents don't know what to do with such an angst riddled young man.
You know he is a badass, he has a chain on his wallet.
Anyone have any dragonballs laying around? I need to wish this image out of my mind.

You think he looks crazy but he is just freaking out because he has MAJOR OCD and can't find the other glove.
This look is so bad he has to have a Captain America symbol on his hand to remind people there are good comic book movies out there.
Why does this make me wonder "what ever happened to Macaulay Culkin??"
He looks like he is thinking "I turned down Doctor Strange for this?!"
Ok, who taught Marilyn Manson and Justin Beiber the fusion dance?

I'm intrigued

I'm a little surprised at all the negative responses. Obviously they're going to try to give us a Joker we have not seen yet on screen and that is a good thing. Let's not forget that this is Jared freaking Leto and I don't have any doubt that he can pull the character off. Not to mention he looks completely insane!

Let's not forget that this is Jared freaking Leto and I don't have any doubt that he can pull the character off. Not to mention he looks completely insane! As far as the 'gansta' look with tattoos, grill, and rings - its' different but that's probably what we need after Ledger's amazing take on the role. I think people just need to be a little more optimistic. People here always seem to have negative impressions at first. A recent example would be everyone dogging Quicksilver's look from DOFP when it was first revealed - and he ended up having a the best scene in the movie (at least voted by the people on this website). To sum up - I like it. Everyone else, calm your titties, it will be fine.

I don't know how they keep ballsing this up. The Joker was inspired (or just blatantly ripped off) the look of The Man Who Laughs from the 1920s movie, right?
Just do that make-up, in colour. I mean they managed to do that iconic look on screen nearly eighty years ago.

I like it

It's a logical extension of The Joker past Heath Ledger's version and into utter batshit insanity. I think Jared Leto has what it takes to deliver a very chilling Joker, if the script allows him to.

How is this LOGICAL??
This is a HUGE step back from any other iteration of Joker out there. Cesar Romero was more intimidating than this asshat. The face tattoos kill it, they went too far with the stupid look. It needs to be toned down a bit because now it just looks like shit.

There should be a new addendum to Godwin's Law: anyone who starts using Capslock during an online argument automatically forfeits.

As for Leto, that Oscar win for DALLAS BUYER'S CLUB speaks volumes about his acting ability. I'm just surprised the fanboys didn't learn their lesson from Heath Ledger in THE DARK KNIGHT.

First impression...not good. I could get used to it, sure, but Jared Leto's obsession with himself and his body may ruin this thing. It looks like he just dressed up a little bit for a 30 seconds to Mars concert.

No.

I don't even know where to start. Tattoo's are just too fashionable for the Joker. I don't see him sitting down and letting someone tattoo him. It's all about self-expression, right? Joker doesn't give a crap about that. His idea of self-expression is killing your mom. The grill? It's ridiculous. But what really kills this? The word "Damaged" on his forehead.

That way he could say "Why so serious? You know how I lost my teeth?" Mr. Nobody in particular; "Uh Batman kicked the shit out of you." Joker; "Shit your right." Que Will Smith as Deadshot; "AHHH Hell Nah!"

The only thing I don't like is the "damaged" tattoo on his forehead. I can see the Joker getting tattoos, especially if he's in prison in Suicide Squad, but I don't think Joker is self-pitying. An interesting take for sure, and I hope it works out.

Marylin Manson is the Joker!

Why didn't they just tattoo quotes from the Dark Knight Movie. Joker does not seem the type to have tattoo's but I know that an opinion but seems like they conflicted between comic and Nolan Joker. It is always going to be tough to follow Heath Ledger as it was for him following Jack Nicholson but both films are directed differently and we are unsure how he's to be portrayed. I am more worried about Will Smith playing Dead Shot in the Suicide Squad than I am Joker. Still feel like this movie

They always have to "outdo" the previous Joker...

They should have stopped portraying the Joker with Ledger....nobody can beat his performance which was simply a masterpiece and even Hollywood knows it...but now, this is just a sign of desperation. They have to make an even crazier, goth-like portrayal of the character in hipster "new-edge" form when in fact his character should be a simple clown mind fuck. It's like Hollywood is trying way too hard.... believe me, I think Leto is a great actor and in no doubt do I think he can pull it

Get ride of the metal teeth and face tats and he would be perfect, but no, we get early 2000s Marilyn Manson.

The more I think about it...

It's different and wicked and that's good for the Joker and I think all will make sense. Like:
- He has a bird, probably a Robin on his arm. He probably did it after he killed one, so he never forgets and Batman never forgets.
-He probably lost alot of teeth fighting Batman, so this more dangerous ones are a replacement
So I think "it's all part of the plan"

Careful what you wish for

So I think I figured it out - Green equals lots of thumbs up and Red lots of thumbs down. Weird
Any who - I think many have pointed out the fact this does appear to be from a comic book source which is a good starting point for reference as I'll admit I don't read comics anymore as I'm not 12, but the point is they are clearly going for a move away from other versions we've seen which is a good thing. Yes Ledger was fantastic in his version and so was Nicholson but they had their own films

Yes Ledger was fantastic in his version and so was Nicholson but they had their own films and this is a different Joker where, as I understand it in this movie he will be more a supporting character. My concern is whether we looks to colourful to fit into the dark moody films we seems to be getting from DC as the article yesterday with MOS in colour made a huge difference to the viewing experience. Stop being so bleak and add some colour even if it's just for the daytime!

Then they added a girl who doesn't do action sequences as Harley and another one who's never acted to play the 6th member of the team (along with Jai Courtney and the always unpredictable Will Smith), and I said this is really going to suck. Now that we've seen Crackhead Joker, I'm feeling even more confident about my prediction.

You want to see a Harley Quinn who can't throw a punch? Really? Cause me.....I kind of like my action heroes to be able to do action. It's kind of a big deal.

It's a movie lol, hardly any actor can throw a punch, did Signory Weaver know how to punch when she did Alien?, or how about Linda Hamilton? or Scarlett Johansson. Hah, I guess with Gal Gadot having army training, you are happy with her as Wonder Woman

Sigourney Weaver didn't have to punch in Alien, moron. Linda Hamilton underwent extensive physical training for her role in T2 (in Terminator she was supposed to play a helpless victim). Johansson did extensive work getting ready for her fight scenes.

There hasn't been a single interview with Robbie where she's said a word about training or learning to fight. That tells me they plan on altering Harley's character to accommodate an actress who can't perform the part. Sorry, I like Harley

They'll change her so she fits Robbie's abilities, which is a crap way to cast an actor.

Normally I like your two cents, they're usually logical and lucid, if not always negative lol. But right not you're making a lot of bad assumptions, based on next to nothing. Not one statement has been released as to how Harley Quinnn will perform in the movie and you're ALL OVER them for casting this chick as a sign she Can't/or won't be able to fight. It's a tad early for even this kind of wild speculation.

This is supposed to take place in the same universe as Ben Aflecks Batman Right because if batman can't handle this Junkie looking Joker then how can he deal with Superman. Also who would give the joker The tattoos, if the doesn't like it he'll kill you but if he likes it the Joker's crazy and would probably kill you anyways.

I can't believe that a joker could be sane and Lucid enough to give himself intricately shaded tattoos especially in some of their locations. I guess joker always had thugs around him that could but you know nobody was volunteering to do them.

i think i get it...

he's like a junkie neo-nazi thug. he has slick hair, a bunch of tattoos, and abs. bros are gonna think he's hardcore, and girls are gonna be attracted to his badboyness (also playing to the Harley Quinn story). it has broad appeal, and seems like something David Ayer would do, in the vein of Sabotage. it makes sense in that way. and it's totally distinguishable from Heath Ledger's version. but... this is what i'd expect from like, the Gotham show on Fox. or some teen Batman reboot on the CW.

Holy shitballs this looks awful. Does it really need a Damaged tattoo on his head like @Beaker said. Like all pretense is gone and we're so stupid as an audience we need to be told he is edgy and dangerous and fucked up by a literal sign on his forehead? Can they have less respect for our intelligence? I wouldn't mind the tattoos on the body those are fine but god there is such thing as trying TOO hard. This is a perfect example of trying too hard to differentiate from the crowd of previous

This would be a perfect Joker in a Breaking Bad/Batman crossover.

Just god awful.

He has 'Damaged' tattooed on his fucking forehead? Are you kidding me? As one comedian said on Twitter, it looks like the Joker fell in a vat of Hot Topic. I was ready to give Leto the benefit of the doubt, but as character design goes this could hardly be worse.

If you are defending this or whining about people criticizing it then you just wanted to love it from the outset and were going to defend whatever it was without thinking.

Wow people, get over it!

Everyone that is complaining that this isn't an am exact replica of a version of one of the Jokers from the comics, get over it already! This is gonna be a new version, obviously! Let's wait and see how it translates to the big screen before we get outer panties in a bunch! Leto has the ability, Ayers has the eye for dark, urban, gritty action. I'm betting we get one dark, badass flick! I can't wait for the final product.
Marvel has always been the family comic, hardly any bad language or

Marvel has always been the family comic, hardly any bad language or blood, DC is for the adults, M labels abound. DC is sticking to what made them what they are, and that's exactly what they should be doing.

Really?

Can we for once just have a joker that actually looks like THE JOKER? This
just looks like his emo punk rocker 22 year old son.

Actually if you look at the current joker or the one from batman R.I.P., or countless other versions from the comics, this one looks very similar. So my question to you is have you ever even picked up a comic?
