The Internet Reacts To The New Joker

Presenting… Jared Leto’s Joker. Probably not what you were expecting, huh? Here’s the full image of the Suicide Squad’s take on the Joker, tweeted earlier today by David Ayer, its director.

Though it only shows part of the overall costume, there’s already a ton to analyse here. The forehead tattoo. The grills. The expression. Cynically, it feels like someone who is out of touch tried to come up with something edgy, and this is the result.

And maybe there was nothing Ayer could have revealed that wouldn’t have been met with scepticism; Heath Ledger is a tough act to follow. Still, if nothing else, there’s always the possibility that the acting will make everyone change their minds. It’s too early to make judgement!

For now, though, there are jokes:
