Suicide Squad helmer David Ayer has shared a creepy camera test photo for the movie, featuring Academy Award winner Jared Leto as The Joker.
Three years ago, audiences were introduced to Jared Leto’s Joker in David Ayer’s supervillain team-up flick Suicide Squad. While Jared Leto’s take on the Clown Prince of Crime received mixed reactions from moviegoers, few would argue that it wasn’t a memorable one.
Yesterday, possibly in celebration of Suicide Squad‘s three-year anniversary, Ayer took to Twitter to share a new still taken from a camera test with Jared Leto in full Joker makeup and costume. The photo features Jared Leto’s Joker covering his mouth and “replacing” it with the tooth-filled smile tattoo on the back of his hand.

Jared Leto was previously reported to be attached to various DC Films projects, including Gotham City Sirens, a Joker and Harley Quinn film, and a standalone project centered on his version of the iconic Batman villain. However, while Jared Leto was expressed his willingness to reprise his role as The Joker, there has been little to no word on the status of the aforementioned DC films for some time now.
The first 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 ensemble cast included Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jared Leto as The Joker. James Gunn is expected to deliver a fresh take on the supervillain team, with Idris Elba playing a new character, Jai Courtney reprising his role as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman playing Rick Flag again, David Dastmalchian starring as Polka-Dot Man and Viola Davis returning as Amanda Waller. John Cena is reportedly in talks for an undisclosed role in the movie.
The Suicide Squad is one of many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC. These projects include The Batman, The Flash, Green Lantern Corps, Birds of Prey, Black Adam, Nightwing, Supergirl and New Gods.
The Suicide Squad will be released in theaters on August 6, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news on Jared Leto’s Joker and the future of the DC Extended Universe!
