Joker Suicide Squad

Meet everybody's favorite psycho killer, again. A photo of the newest Empire magazine cover has appeared online, and it's a very colorful, very fun shot of Jared Leto playing The Joker in the upcoming movie Suicide Squad. We've already seen that kick ass Comic-Con teaser trailer and the original Joker reveal photo, so it's nothing completely new, but it is cool to see more of him full-size like this. Plus, I dig the crazy wacky colorful design of the Empire cover. We still have yet to see the rest of the cast like this - Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Hopefully this is a good sign that a full theatrical trailer will be arriving sooner than we know it. Stay tuned for more.

Here's the new special edition cover of The Joker in David Ayer's Suicide Squad, found via Bleeding Cool:

Empire - Joker Suicide Squad Cover

You can watch the first full Comic-Con tease for DC's Suicide Squad right here, showing lots of footage.

Suicide Squad is a DC Comics movie from Warner Bros, directed by David Ayer (End of Watch, Sabotage, Fury) from a script by David Ayer based on the comic books. Will Smith is Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman is Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie is Harley Quinn, Jared Leto is Joker, Jai Courtney (Terminator: Genisys) plays Boomerang, Viola Davis plays Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne (Anna Karenina) is Enchantress, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is supposedly playing Killer Croc. All of these characters are part of a super villain team recruited by the government for secret missions. Our friend El Mayimbe is also claiming that Ike Barinholtz is playing Dr. Hugo Strange, Adam Beach is possibly Ravan and Jim Parrack is playing Deathstroke. Warner Bros will release David Ayer's Suicide Squad everywhere starting August 5th, 2016.

Clearly it's a different take on the Joker and that's totally fine...but I just DON'T like it. At all.

Yeah man, I'm trying to accept the tattoos....but they're clashing for me. The rest is fine....but...Idk. I hope Leto proves me wrong.

I don't know why, but it sorta reminds me of Pootie Tang.

I really like the tattoos. So original....

The background on that cover is really good. Quite different for a movie image. For a man seemingly so mentally ill, he really does a good job of his make up.

Buffalo Bill also did a good job of putting on make up.

Ive met (more ran into) Leto in new york a few times. Absolute rockstar douche attitude. However he IS one talented mofo. Actually some of my fav movies is lord of war with Nic Cage. Way underrated movie IMO. So maybe his performance will heal the pain of having to endure Smith and Jai courtney dude.

Also loved Lord of War, although I completely forgot he was in that. Good call

It's too much at first sight,but topping Heath Ledger is impossible! But still have allot of faith in David Ayer ,a true master of action and timing...

You say it as if he is some great director. Only End of Watch and Fury were decent. Sabotage was a huge waste. Still skeptical what he can pull off with this movie.

Yes sabotage was indeed very bad but still two out of 3 so i have big faith in him. It will not be easy because the fanboys are very critical but i am no fanboy onley a fan of good movies...

I get the feeling this is going to be like Hot Topic: The Movie.

It just seems like some detached executive's idea of what 'the new Joker' should look like.

OfficialJab on Oct 26, 2015

it does have the whiff of Poochie to it.

Dan Hibiki on Oct 26, 2015

Hmmm. No.

capitandelespacio on Oct 26, 2015

...but really though

Looks like he's dressed as a pimp, got the cane, long coat with his stomach showing, all he needs now is a little jewelry and a fancy top hat.

Most of the viewing public won't even be aware of the Joker's new look until they are in the theatre. Most people don't care. The internet is a scary place.

DAVIDPD on Oct 26, 2015

Are they going for a 90s look? Not a good idea considering the visual connotations with *shudder* Joel Schumacher

Terry Craig on Oct 26, 2015

Bad Costume Designing , Maybe Good Acting ... a little disappointing

Ehsan Davodi on Oct 26, 2015
