David Ayer has unveiled a new look at Jared Leto’s divisive take on the Joker, showing off alternate tattoos for the Suicide Squad villain.
While David Ayer’s Suicide Squad was largely met with criticism from fans and critics alike, one truly divisive element of the ensemble villain movie was Jared Leto’s Joker. Suicide Squad pictured him as a flamboyant psychopathic mobster, covered in tattoos that tried to reveal his history. At the time, fans wildly speculated whether some of these tattoos were linked to him killing the Jason Todd Robin. Although it seems like Jared Leto won’t be reprising his Joker role anytime soon, David Ayer recently revealed a new look at the Suicide Squad villain.
The Suicide Squad director posted the new photo of Jared Leto’s Joker on Instagram, which shows the actor wearing different facial tattoos for the role. In the photo, Jared Leto’s Joker has a long line of “hahaha” where his eyebrows should be. Although it isn’t clear whether he also has the ‘damaged’ forehead tattoo. David Ayer explained that “research and fine tuning when crafting a character are endless.” Take a look at Jared Leto’s alternate tattoos in Suicide Squad below.
