It’s a very different Joker to any we’ve seen previously. He looks positively deranged, completely unkempt and has very obvious nods to comics such as The Killing Joke and Grant Morrison’s Arkham Asylum series. The tattoos and doctored teeth are a touch bizarre, but I’m optimistic that the character portrayed will justify such a jarring approach. The Robin tattoo is especially curios.
What do you think? Excited to see Leto’s take on the madman? Let us know in the comments!
