First look at Jared Leto in “kind of like” The Joker for “Suicide Squad”

“Suicide Squad” director David Ayer tweeted a highly-filtered picture of Jared Leto with Joker-green hair.

To be honest I didn’t notice the resemblance until a friend pointed out it was an homage to Alan Moore’s “The Killing Joke.”

Judging by how blurry Jared Leto’s face is in that picture, it seems David Ayer is trying to keep the final look as secret for as long as possible.

I don’t want to jump to conclusions and say he looks either great or bad until I see him in full makeup, so I’ll just hope for this movie to do well in theaters.

On a personal note, I wonder if tumblr or twitter will take it against that picture for “glorifying a graphic novel that encourages rape against women,” like it happened a few weeks ago when an alternate cover for Batgirl that was a homage for that cover was pulled for that exact reason. It even had its own hashtag on twitter, #ChangeTheCover, so I kind of wonder if they’re gonna try the same thing with the hashtag #ChangeTheTeaser.
