When I first heard the news that Jared Leto had been cast as the Joker in DC's Suicide Squad, my first thought was how are we ever going to forget Heath Ledger's iconic performance and look? I'm sure the actor and filmmakers probably had the same thought in their head which is why in the first look of Leto's Joker was released by directed David Ayer, the character has taken a whole 360 degree turn from Nolan's The Dark Knight.
With several disturbing tattoos all over his body, the most prominent being the word 'damaged' over his forehead, Leto's Joker look retains little of the purple and green which has dominated the costumes of previous Jokers. Gone is the clownish makeup as well, instead what remains is the extremely fit yet crazed Joker ready to join the rest of super villains. What do you think of the Joker's new look? Will you still remember Ledger or reserve judgement until Suicide Squad releases in theatres on August 5, 2015?
