The Killing Joke Header - Jared Leto to play the Joker in Suicide Squad

Yesterday, we reported on the Suicide Squad cast photo that was posted on director David Ayer‘s Twitter account. While it was exciting to see everyone get together at their first read-through, plus see some new additions, Jared Leto was noticeably absent from the photo. Was it a bathroom break or was he busy doing something else? It really doesn’t matter at this point, because Ayer has posted the photo that everyone has been waiting for – so to speak. A first look at Leto as the Joker, using the infamous “The Killing Joke” cover as a reference. Hit the jump to check it out.

Ayer posted the photo on his Twitter account,

We also have a larger version of the photo below.

While it has been known that Leto would be playing the Joker, it’s unclear which Joker we will see. There have been many different interpretations of The Joker, though the core remains the same. Since the universe seems to be based on the story of The Dark Knight Returns, it makes sense that we are getting a Joker the reflects that story arc, but the Killing Joke Joker written by Alan Moore was different. Again, the idea of the Joker is the same, but the interpretations couldn’t be any more different. So which Joker we will be getting in the film remains to be seen. I remain optimistic that Ayer give justice to the character. Many were worried when Heath Ledger signed on to be The Joker in The Dark Knight, and look how that turned out.

Suicide Squad also stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Scott Eastwood, Ike Barinholtz, Adam Beach, and Jim Parrack. WB has scheduled the film for a August 5, 2016 release.
