Kids these days don’t realize how good they have it. There was a time when people actually had to wait to see what the film adaptation of their favorite comic book characters looked like. Yes, waiting whole months for a photo to appear on TV or in a magazine to give them a glimpse of what was to come.
Of course, technology has changed everything. Anyone with a cell phone and a social media account can now unleash plot details and characters from films instantly. For filmmakers and people who hate spoilers, the world has turned into a cruel and unjust place.
Alas, more photos have leaked of Jared Leto’s take on The Joker. And the Internet exploded in a nerd rage due to the fact that those goofy tattoos where not simply just for a publicity photo, those tattoos are staying for the film. Though the rage at the idea of Joker having tattoos, and folks barely batting an eye at the fact these photos show the Clown Prince of Crime smacking his partner Harley Quinn like a pimp from a 70s-era exploitation film, is kind of messed up.
Also, for a character historically known to smile all the time, Leto’s Joker in these photos look like the Joker never smiles. Why so serious?, indeed Jared.
The scenes look like they are probably part of a flashback, due to the fact The Joker is not part of the Suicide Squad and Harley Quinn doesn’t look like someone ready to got to an Insane Clown Posse concert in these photos.
“Suicide Squad” is set for release in 2016 and also stars Will Smith as Deadshot.
Anyway, here are some of those photos:
