The first picture of Jared Leto as The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie has been released.
The rather frightening looking picture was tweeted by writer/director David Ayers and is the first glimpse fans have had of Jared playing the iconic role. His look is a far cry from Heath Ledger’s Joker in The Dark Knight and Jack Nicholson’s portrayal of the character in the original Batman movie.
Suicide Squad also stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.
The movie is about a secret government agency that recruits imprisoned supervillains to execute dangerous black ops missions in exchange for clemency.
Suicide Squad is due for release in autumn 2016. Take a look at the picture below:
