There was some hope for a while there that Jared Leto’s The Joker would not be covered in extremely lame tattoos as we saw in the first official reveal that even somehow made The Joker of all characters un-interesting. That level of douche where maybe he would be considered fascinating if he wasn’t trying so damn hard be so fascinating. Well, unfortunately The Joker for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad adaptation does indeed have dumb tattoos, including the worst one; Damaged in calligraphy across his forehead. Excuse me while I rub my temples for five minutes.
On top of that The Joker’s style which until now remained to be seen, looks more like he’s going to a Miami club to pay for some over-priced drinks rather than be absolutely insane. Seriously, are these just images of Ricky Martin with Jared Leto’s head photoshopped on?
Check out the set pictures below.
Nevermind, he’s a Miami pimp. My mistake.
It almost makes me actually feel bad for Jared Leto in that he probably wanted to bring The Joker into the present day rather than just another possibly redundant look, but holy smokes, is this the absolute worst way to go with it.
As far as the woman in these photos, it appears that it’s actress Margot Robbie who is portraying Joker’s assistant Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. But in these particular scene photos, it looks more like she’s in pre-Harley mode when she was just a shrink named Harleen Quinzel as IGN stated. It’s times like these that I’m glad I don’t spend my free hours obsessing over comic books, only to be disappointed when the film version takes over. Looking forward to the Redbox rental! Maybe.
UPDATED: Video reveals what The Joker’s ride will look like. Looks like a leftover set piece from Batman & Robin.
