Suicide Squad director David Ayer has officially released an image of Jared Leto’s new haircut, giving viewers a small preview of the actor as DC Comics' Clown Prince of Crime, The Joker.
In what might be the most highly-anticipated haircut in comics history (besides 1990s Superman’s mullet), Ayer wrote last night that a Suicide Squad tease was coming sometime today. He then followed up on that with an image of Leto, who previously sported a mane more similar to Aquaman’s than the Joker’s, in the middle of a haircut.
Now that he’s fresh and clean, Leto is ready to embrace his inner sociopathic killer clown. Suicide Squad, which stars Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Dead Shot, is set to begin filming this month in Toronto.
Are you a fan of Leto's new haircut? Do you think it should have resembled the Joker's other famous hairstyles? Sound off in the comments below.
Suicide Squad opens on August 5th, 2016.
