Jared Leto as The Joker image emerges online
News of Jared Leto taking on the role of The Joker in upcoming movie ‘Suicide Squad’ was confirmed back in December 2014 and now the first picture of the actor in his new guise has been revealed.
Director David Ayer initially tweeted a picture of the ‘Suicide Squad’ cast which features Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Cara Delevingne, Jai Courtney, and Rick Flag amongst others.
However, Jared Leto was conspicuous by absence and #WhereIsJared become a popular trending topic on Twitter.
In response to anticipation over Leto’s latest role, Ayer shared a picture of the 30 Seconds To Mars star sporting green hair with a camera in front of his face (see image below) in a nod to Alan Moore's ‘Batman: The Killing Joke’ graphic novel cover.
‘Suicide Squad’ is scheduled to be released in cinemas in August.
The Oscar-winning actor has previously spoken about having to gain weight to play the green-haired villain.
