“Suicide Squad” is set to hit theaters in August and one of the things fans are looking forward to seeing the most is Jared Leto’s Joker on the big screen. Jared Leto’s Joker has been hyped up big time, but fans were less than thrilled when they saw the first photo of him.
The first photo of Jared Leto’s Joker that was released showed The Joker with tattoos all over his body. The look has been divisive to say the least, but director David Ayer recently spoke to Yahoo! and according to him the tattoos serve a purpose.
“The tattoos tell a very specific story and eventually people will decipher them and understand what’s going on, but obviously they’re contentious, any time you do something new it’s contentious,” David Ayer said. “There’s very specific stories and Easter eggs in those tattoos. And even his teeth, there’s an entire story behind that which is absolutely canon. It’s putting his history on his body. This Joker is a little more working class, who I believe could live in our world.”
See that? We can all relax, because even The Joker’s teeth serve a purpose and we’ll find out what purpose they serve when “Suicide Squad” hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
