See Jared Leto’s Joker With Tattooless Suicide Squad Look In New Image
Jared Leto’s Joker gets a simplified new look influenced by the comics in this intimidating Suicide Squad artwork.
While Suicide Squad was universally criticized by fans and critics alike for various reasons, one of the most resounding complaints was the direction David Ayer and Warner Bros. took with Jared Leto’s Joker. The gangster take on The Joker wasn’t popular with the majority of fans, with many taking a strong disliking to Jared Leto’s facial tattoos. But thanks to a talented artist, it’s easy to see the genuine potential of the Suicide Squad star if the design had gone in a different direction.
The Suicide Squad art from digital artist “jscomicart” on Instagram removes all of Jared Leto’s tattoos and only adds the green eyebrows alongside the comic-accurate red smile. It’s a minor change, but instantly the Suicide Squad star looks more like The Joker that fans know and love. It would be interesting to see how Jared Leto’s performance as The Joker would’ve been received if he looked closer to this rather than the disappointing gangster from Suicide Squad. Take a look at the Suicide Squad star without the Joker tattoos below.

David Ayer’s Suicide Squad followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a dangerous black ops mission in exchange for reduced sentences. The sequel will see the return of four cast members from that film: Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag.
James Gunn is expected to deliver on the fresh take on the supervillain team in his upcoming movie The Suicide Squad, with Idris Elba playing a new character on the team, David Dastmalchian starring as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, and Steve Agee voicing King Shark. Other cast members confirmed for the ensemble picture include John Cena, Storm Reid, Flula Borg, Nathan Fillion, Taika Waititi, Peter Capaldi, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Mayling Ng, Jennifer Holland, Pete Davidson, Juan Diego Botto, Alice Braga, Tinashe Kajese, Julio Ruiz, and Joaquín Cosío.
The Suicide Squad will be released in theaters on August 6, 2021. Stay tuned to us for the latest news regarding Jared Leto and The Joker.
