After the initial back lash from the first reveal of Jared Leto as The Joker in Suicide Squad, fans have clamored down and have put faith into Leto’s acting skills to give the psychotic villain the justice it deserves. The leaked, and later official trailer, brought comparisons to Heath Ledger interpretation as well as Jack Nichosons. Jared Leto’s performance may be up to par with them, and has proven to have the acting chops, but the look of The Joker is still something that baffles me.
Continuing with committed look of a flamboyant Mexican Cartel Gang leader, Empire Magazine gives us our official first full body look of The Joker. There are a few things of note”:
- The Joker is still rocking Arkham pants, possibly just escaped from the asylum.
- A tattooed smile on his happy trail, WTF!!!!!
- A purple crocodile leather trench coat, I just don’t know what to say.
Jared Leto had the following to say regarding playing The Joker to Empire:
“I took a pretty deep dive. But this was a unique opportunity and I couldn’t imagine doing it any other way. It was fun playing those psychological games. But at the same time, it was very painful, like giving birth out of my prick-hole.”
