There you have it, folks. The new look of the Joker for Suicide Squad. Ever since it was revealed over the weekend, opinions on it have been divided right down the middle. Some people think he looks psychotic and interesting, and dig how the shot is clearly an homage to the iconic Killing Joke Joker illustration.
On the other hand, some people think he looks like he is squarely aimed at the Hot Topic target demo and that he too closely resembles Marilyn Manson than the Joker we all know, love and fear.
The reality is, we cannot pass any judgement here until we have heard the voice, seen the walk and see how Jared Leto chooses to play the clown prince of crime. For now, all we have to go on is a visual, and in terms of character, that is a fairly shallow way to judge. But screw it, since when do I care about being shallow?
Join us as we take a look at both the good, and bad, about this new version of everyone’s favorite comic book villain and examine him from both sides of the fence.
