This past weekend the internet collectively vomited when they saw the first shot of Jared Leto as Joker in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.
Being a huge fan of Leto, even I was nauseated as the first image, which looked like The Joker was a member of Avenged Sevenfold (with the silver grill and lame tattoos). To really get the point across, this video perfectly encapsulates the issue.
Anyways, an alleged new look at popped up online, and although it isn’t confirmed, it’s a lot better (it could be a fan film for all we know). I think it’s important to note that we all screamed in rage when Christopher Nolan cast Heath Ledger as Joker in The Dark Knight. Now, he’s a comic-to-screen legend…an all-time great. Maybe Ayer and his team have something cool in mind that will show up on screen – but even as I try and convince myself to ignore what we have seen with our own eyes, this video makes it impossible for me to move on…
In The Dirty Dozen of superhero movies, we will see Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), and Echantress (Cara Delevingne). Other DC villains rumored to appear is Deathstroke, King Shark, Killer Croc, and Plastique.
Suicide Squad is filming for release on August 5th, 2016.
