New look at Jared Leto’s Joker in Suicide Squad
Jared Leto’s stern Joker graces the new cover of Empire magazine, giving fans the first head-to-toe look at his Suicide Squad character in full costume.
Leto’s Joker is suited up in a purple snakeskin trench coat; matching violet cane; blue baggy, drawstring “Arkham Asylum” pants; plenty of black ink; and slicked back, green hair. He has no shoes, no shirt, but likely problems galore, reported Variety. Leto also opened up for the very first time about the mental toll of playing the Clown Prince of Crime. “There was definitely a period of detachment,” Leto said. About his method acting, which involved staying in character around his costars. I took a pretty deep dive. But this was a unique opportunity and I couldn’t imagine doing it another way. It was fun, playing those psychological games. But at the same time, it was very painful.”
