‘Suicide Squad’: New Look At Jared Leto’s First Creepy Makeup Test For The Joker

Suicide Squad director David Ayer has shared a new behind-the-scenes photo from Jared Leto’s Joker makeup test for the movie.

Earlier this week, Suicide Squad director David Ayer revealed a behind-the-scenes look at the supervillain team-up movie on his official Instagram page. The infamous take on the Joker in that movie featured a lot of tattoos, and Jared Leto was actually going to have more if the test is of any indication. Had this designed held, Joker’s infamous “damaged” tattoo would have been replaced with a “blessed” one, and there would have been markings around his lips in the shape of a cartoonish smile.

As it stands, the Joker design for Jared Leto’s abbreviated role in Suicide Squad proved to be unpopular with fans, and the director later admitted that he should have gone with a different route for the story with the Clown Prince of a Crime as the main villain. Still, have fun scrubbing that creepy image you just looked at out of your head before you sleep tonight.

David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a dangerous black ops mission in exchange for reduced sentences. The sequel will see the return of four cast members from that film: Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag.

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is expected to deliver a new take on the titular supervillain team, with Idris Elba playing a new character on the team, David Dastmalchian starring as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, and Steve Agee voicing King Shark. Other cast members confirmed for the ensemble picture include John Cena, Storm Reid, Flula Borg, Nathan Fillion, Taika Waititi, Peter Capaldi, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Mayling Ng, Jennifer Holland, Pete Davidson, Juan Diego Botto, Alice Braga, Tinashe Kajese, Julio Ruiz, and Joaquín Cosío.

The Suicide Squad opens in theaters on August 6, 2021. Stay tuned to for the latest news regarding Jared Leto’s Joker and the future of the DC Extended Universe.
