Zack Snyder has released the first look at Jared Leto’s new-look Joker, ahead of next month’s release of Snyder’s Justice League.
The tattoos from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad are gone, with Leto now sporting a look that will definitely be compared to Heath Ledger’s Joker in terms of vibe.
“The Joker is really the only thing that I thought of in retrospect,” Snyder told Vanity Fair. “But I will say that it was always my intention to bring Joker into that world.”
It has already been reported that Leto’s Joker will be appearing as part of the Knightmare sequence in the film.
“The cool thing about the scene is that it’s Joker talking directly to Batman about Batman,” Snyder explained. “It’s Joker analyzing Batman about who he is and what he is. That’s the thing I also felt like fans deserved from the DC Universe. That is to say, the Jared Leto Joker and the Ben Affleck Batman, they never really got together. It seemed uncool to me that we would make it all the way through this incarnation of Batman and Joker without seeing them come together.”
So what do you think about this new look for Leto’s Joker? Are you looking forward to Zack Snyder’s Justice League next month?
