‘Suicide Squad’ Concept Art Shows Off Alternate Design For Jared Leto’s Joker

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto gets a classic Joker look in new concept art from the DC Comics movie.

Jared Leto’s performance as the Joker in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad was instantly divisive, with some fans enjoying the new tattooed gangster version of the character and others hating it. Now, new concept art from the film reveals an impressive alternate design for the Clown Prince of Crime, showing the Joker in a more traditional outfit than the costumes Jared Leto wore in the film.

The concept art from Suicide Squad depicts Jared Leto in a purple pinstripe suit, with a green shirt and purple tie. The only recognizable feature from the design that remained in the film is his short slicked back green hair. The alternate look definitely feels closer to versions of the villain fans have been reading in the comics for decades. You can check out the alternate design for Suicide Squad‘s Joker below.
