Jared Leto’s Joker Makes His First Appearance

The Clown Prince of Crime, possibly the most notorious villain in all of the DC Universe, is returning to cinemas in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. Played by Jared Leto, this new Joker has just made his first appearance.

Hmm, not sure what I think of this. This is certainly a very different style to any Joker we have seen previously and to be honest it really needs to be given the seminal performances that have gone before.

I think this meme I stumbled across may have got the character’s film development dead to rights.

I believe the pose Leto is making is supposed to be reminiscent of the Joker’s origin story in The Killing Joke.

However, to my eye this doesn’t look so much like the Joker as it does a Mad Max villain crossed with Marilyn Manson. I guess we shall have to wait for Suicide Squad to come out to see this Joker in action.

What do you think of Leto’s Joker?
