Wrapping the work week, “Suicide Squad” writer and director David Ayer took to Twitter Friday night to reveal the clearest look yet at Oscar-winner Jared Leto as a heavily tattooed Joker in Warner Bros.’ upcoming DC Comics-based film.
Ayer’s accompanying text referenced the 75th anniversary of the character, created by Jerry Robinson, Bill Finger and Bob Kane and first introduced in April 1940’s “Batman” #1: “The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad @WarnerBrosEnt @DCComics”
Prior glimpses at Leto in character as the Joker had been limited to quick teases, with this being the first full, official reveal — and the first time observers have seen the character’s multiple tattoos, a significant departure from past incarnations of the iconic Batman villain.
