A Closer Look At Leto’s Joker (It Looks Great!)

Despite how others might feel, I like it!

So, a whole slew of new photos showing off Jared Leto’s Joker has hit the net! We can think Just Jared for this development…whoever or whatever that is…but we’re thankful none the less! And it turns out…drum roll please…he has tattoos!



How dare they!!!


Personally, I like the tattoos (save the DAMAGED one across his head…it’s not so much I don’t like it, it’s just going to take some getting used to) & the overall look. It’s different…I like different, it keeps it fresh. Check it out:

Isn’t all that cool or what?! The car, the clothes, the way he slaps Harley (or Dr. Quinzel, it seems). Ah, yes, it’s never quite right until domestic violence is introduced, isn’t it? Reminds us that the Joker is a irredeemable shitbag that deserves a bullet in the skull…anyway, there’s more!

As I said, I love it! It’s making the wait for Suicide Squad that much more unbearable for me! Feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments below!…I probably won’t read them, but someone might! Yeah!

    Honestly, this comes off as a high-end cosplay costume rather than the final look for a finished film. However, how something looks in a hastily snapped set photo or behind the scenes video clip is often a different creature up there on the silver screen. Leto is exceptionally talented and it’s what he brings to the performance that will make or break this. After all, when I got my first look at Ledger’s Joker my initial reaction was “What the hell is this?” So I’m going to have to wait and see the movie. I will say that Leto is the one who most physically resembles the classic Joker.

      That’s a great way to view it! I agree, it does kind of look like a cosplay on set, but as you said, we’ll just have to wait & see how it looks on screen. Here’s to hoping!

    seems that they are modeling this Joker off the musical group, Die Antwood (see: Chappie). Especially the way his hair is cut in the main photo and the deliberately corny/bad tattoos. This approach may actually work. But, I do think that “damaged” tattoo on his forehead makes me shudder in revulsion at the shameless hipsterism of the wardrobe department on set . . .

      Yeah, the Damaged tattoo bothers me a bit too, but I’m keeping hope that Leto will do the Joker justice. Guess we’ll find out!
