Jared Leto teases Joker transformation for Suicide Squad…

April 6th, 2015 by Marc Comments


It looks like The Suicide Squad’s Joker, Jared Leto, is starting to get into the transformation into comic books’ most famous bad guy…

Sharing yet another picture on his Instagram, the actor can be seen looking ghostly white with the words ‘Transformation begins’ appearing with the pic.

Two things jump out at us here – firstly, we know the image is simply over-exposed, but it really gives us an idea of the bleached (painted) skin of Batman’s arch-nemesis.

Secondly, he really reminds me of the Dark Knight Returns Joker, especially with that mouth (see pic at bottom of the page from Frank Miller’s definitive Batman tale)

Let me know your thoughts…

Suicide Squad stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jared Leto as The Joker, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. It arrives in theatres August 5th, 2016  

Transformation begins.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
