Suicide Squad director David Ayer has released the first look at Jared Leto as The Joker, and he’s looking insanely villainous.
Update: Jared Leto has released a new image of him as The Joker, with green hair and red lips!
Apparently, this image is from Jared Leto’s own Snapchat account, and we’re not sure how it got online (joking), but he seems to be basking in the glory of his new character that he’ll be playing in Suicide Squad. Check out the new look, do you approve?
Original story: Although it’s not much of a shot of Jared Leto as The Joker from Suicide Squad, it’s an iconic shot of The Joker, which can be seen above. Check out the official image released by director David Ayer on his Twitter account below:

Jared Leto has slowly been transforming into The Joker, which he’ll play in Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad, which features many supervillains with a massively talented cast. He seems to be the lead though, as most of the promotion so far has been of him.
We recently heard Jared Leto use the voice he plans on using for The Joker after he shut a heckler up at one of his Thirty Seconds to Mars concerts, which was pretty epic, and later we saw him with his bleached blonde hair in this image that the actor released.
Now, it seems his hair has been dyed green, like The Joker normally has, and we imagine the makeup shot is just days away as filming is set to begin very soon. We look forward to seeing Leto completely transformed into The Joker, but we’d also like to see Will Smith and especially Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.
Suicide Squad is being helmed by David Ayer, who directed the recent WWII film with Brad Pitt titled Fury. We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under David Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero.
Shooting for Suicide Squad was set to begin in Canada the first week of April, and we look forward to hearing more about this massively talented cast of super villains. Suicide Squad will be released on August 5, 2016.
