By the looks of things, it seems that the recently released image of Jared Leto as the Suicide Squad‘s Joker is not all that it appears to be. We admit that the tattoo treatment felt a bit forced and contrived, and it turns out the tatts we actually photoshopped.
And word also comes from people attached to the Suicide Squad project that the Joker will have no tattoos. Whether this was just to bring a sense of virality to Suicide Squad, or an actual quick render of the Joker’s look is yet to really be seen.
Maybe this will cheer up Jack Nicholson up a bit… somewhat.
David Ayer is directing Suicide Squad which is set to star Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Jared Leto as The Joker.
Jesse Eisenberg is also expected to reprise his upcoming role as Lex Luthor, while Scott Eastwood is set to appear in a small role that is rumoured to be Wonder Woman’s love interest.
Suicide Squad will land in cinemas August 5th 2016
“It looks like the comic community has been duped. So it seems we don’t really have a real look at what the Joker will be like. Other than green hair, what will be his unique characteristic? Let us know what you think in the comment section.”
