PHOTOS Jared Leto as The Joker in Suicide Squad is pretty Much Marilyn Manson meets Riff Raff

Jared Leto The Joker Suicide Squad

Director David Ayer has shared the first image of Jared Leto as The Joker from the upcoming film Suicide Squad and the result is an appropriately chaotic and frightening mash up of Marilyn Manson and Riff Raff!

Here’s what I mean:

Marilyn Manson Riff Raff Jared Leto Joker

In the photo, Jared Leto can be seen with his famous long hair cut off, shaved eyebrows and lack of beard sporting a wide array of tattoos, including the word “Damaged” o his forehead and numerous HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAs all over his body. In addition, he is sporting the Joker’s signature green hair as well at silver-capped teeth and a single purple glove.

“The opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character — that’s what graphic novels and comic books are becoming, right?” Leto said in an interview with Billboard in February. “[He’s] this beautiful disaster of a character — what a big challenge.”

As you might imagine, the internet was quick to have a little fun with the image, and here are some of my favorites:

Ben Affleck Batman tattoos like Jared Leto's Joker

I think Jared Leto looks frighteningly ridiculous as The Joker, which seems exactly right. Personally, I cannot wait to see him on screen! Unfortunately, I do have to wait. Suicide Squad is currently being filmed in Toronto and is set to be released August 5, 2016.
