Picture Breakdown: Jared Leto’s “Joker”
By Jake Buchanan
With numerous debates about the newly released images of Jared Leto as The Joker for the upcoming DC movie Suicide Squad many people are 50/50 on the new direction of the iconic character, but the complaints about his new look have revolved around the added tattoos.
Now many people are starting to notice that these tattoos have hints in them directing towards the characters history, and also where he’ll be going in the future DC movies for instance there’s a robin tattoo which could be a nod to a famous storyline involving the two characters.
Also the speculation with why the Joker’s teeth are all metal is that over the years Batman has basically knocked all of his teeth out, but also makes him look more horrifying as a psychopath.
Now it’s highly unlikely that the Joker will be shirtless throughout the movies, because he’ll eventually cover up with the infamous suit he’s known to wear while causing disastrous pranks throughout Gotham. Which the suit then will cover up the tattoos making them not as big of an issue as people have been complaining about, but for all we know there could be a new take on the suit that showcases these tattoos.
We’ve gone from a campy Joker played Cesar Romero, to a gangster Joker played by Jack Nicholson, to an antichrist Joker played by Heath Ledger, and now to a psychopathic Joker played by Jared Leto.
Leto’s Joker absolutely gives off the appearance of a resident inmate at Arkham Asylum with how horrifyingly psychotic he appears, but also this picture makes you wonder what kind of madness this incarnation of The Joker will unleash on the DC cinematic world.
