David Ayer Introduces Jared Leto’s Joker in a Very Familiar Way

by: Jay Carlson

David Ayer has been dropping a lot of goodies for his upcoming Suicide Squad via his Instagram lately. A couple days ago he dropped the first cast photo, revealing new cast members Jim Parrack and Ike Barinholtz who are rumored to be playing Deathstroke and Hugo Strange.

Noticeably absent from the group shot was Jared Leto, who is playing Batman nemesis, the Joker. Fear not, Ayer has released the following image teasing Leto’s Joker in a very familiar shot.

We see a green haired Leto in a pose very reminiscent of Brian Bolland’s iconic cover to Batman:The Killing Joke.

What do you think? It’s a blurry look, but it’s something. I’m eager to see what David Ayer does with Suicide Squad. It has the capability to surprise, but with a cast of this pedigree it has to be amazing or else it will most likely be considered a disappointment.
