Director David Ayer has shared the first official image of Leto as the DC villain.
Unless you’ve been living under an entertainment free rock you’ll know that Jared Leto is set to play The Joker in David Ayer’s upcoming Suicide Squad movie. Of course you’ll probably also know that Leto has been undergoing a pretty drastic transformation in recent months in order to become the DC villain. Well prepare to see things taken one step further as the first official image of Leto's Joker has been revealed.
As he was, Jared before going full on Joker
Director David Ayer shared the first official image of Leto in full on Joker garb on Friday, on the 75th anniversary of the character’s first comic book appearance. With his hair cropped and dyed green, the 43 year old cut a pretty menacing figure in the pic, which also showed him sporting silver capped teeth and a variety of tattoos.

Don't worry, Jared Leto is still playing the Joker.
Jared Leto as the Joker - I was into it from the word "go," but now we even have a first look picture to get the online convo going. The actor's look for Suicide Squad calls back to an earlier Joker from the comic book universe.
Where is Jared?
The square hairdo and blurry, 80s-looking filter add a nice arty touch, but the camera Leto is holding seems to call back to one of the character's most iconic covers -The Killing Joke. It's one of the few origin stories for the Joker. The pic was tweeted on Thursday by Suicide Squad director David Ayer, who added the hashtag #whereisjared.

R.I.P. the most luscious locks in Hollywood...
It had to happen one day, but we’re still deeply sadden to report that Jared Leto’s long, shiny, ombré-d locks are unfortunately no more. Against our wishes, the 43 year old actor took a trip to the hairdressers yesterday, in preparation for his upcoming role as The Joker in David Ayer's Suicide Squad movie.
Before the chop, Jared with hair and beard in tact.
Oscar winner Leto was just as well known for his luscious mane as he was for his acting talents, so the loss of his locks has hit fans hard. The handsome actor has sported the long haired look since 2012, though he has previously rocked a shorter style and even had a pink mohican in 2010.
The primary Suicide Squad cast is complete. And it's a good one.
Will Smith, Tom Hardy, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne have been announced as the primary cast members for the DC Comics supervillain movie Suicide Squad. Leto is set to play Batman's fearsome rival The Joker, while Smith will play Deadshot. The gang will be helmed by Hardy's Rick Flag.

Could Cara Delevingne play Harley Quinn in David Ayers's 'Suicide Squad'?

Brad Pitt took extensive research into the toils of war in preparation for 'Fury'.
Now storming through cinemas worldwide after claiming the US box office crown last weekend, the World War II tank-crew thriller 'Fury' is an old-school war movie that attempts to update the genre with a more internalised approach to its characters.
Brad Pitt has deep respect for the war veterans who inspired 'Fury'
"It's about a family and their love for each other," says writer-director David Ayer of the five-man crew played by Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal. "We wanted to explore the moral and psychological hazards of war, and how they affect this family of brothers."
Continue reading: Brad Pitt And Co Head Back To WWII With 'Fury'
From Training Day to this year's Sabotage, filmmaker David Ayer writes and directs movies about the cathartic power of releasing your inner warrior. And this World War II action thriller is more of the same, with a "war is hell" message stirred in for good measure. The problem is that there's nothing particularly new here. It's a beautifully shot and edited film, with terrific performances and a remarkable sense of scale, but there have been so many movies made about this conflict that it's difficult to find something original to connect with.
It's near the end of the war, April 1945, as Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) leads the crew of a tank named Fury: Bible (Shia LaBeouf) is a true believer, Gordo (Michael Pena) is a relaxed joker, and Coon-Ass (Jon Bernthal) is a hot-headed thug. Having just lost their driver, they're joined by rookie Norman (Logan Lerman), who doesn't yet have a wartime nickname because he never thought he'd end up driving a tank. Together, they head further into Germany, not as liberators but as invaders and occupiers, working with other tank crews to take a strategic town before heading further into the hot zone, where a series of particularly brutal Nazi assaults ensue.
The point of the film seems to be that war erodes a person's humanity over time, and the sharpest aspect is the way each character emerges at some point on the continuum. Obviously, Norman is the naive newbie who still has a strong conscience, while at the other extreme Coon-Ass is virtually a monster. Wardaddy is somewhere in between, a tough guy who still has a sense of perspective, such as when he reasons that Norman should be allowed to have some private time with a young German girl (Alicia von Rittberg) simply because they're "young and alive". All of the actors are excellent, adding telling details to their characters that deepen every scene. And the camaraderie between the five-man crew is remarkably authentic, as is their ease inside the cramped quarters of the tank, which makes submarine movies look spacious by comparison.

Brad Pitt was joined by his 'Fury' co-stars at a Paris photocall held at Les Invalides. He posed on the red carpet in front of an army tank with actors Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Jon Bernthal and Michael Pena, as well as director David Ayer. During the photo session, Shia and Jon appeared to share a little playful banter, with Shia exclaiming, 'What's the deal, man?!' as they are joined by General Christian Baptiste and General Herve Charpentie.
Brad Pitt's 'Fury' swept aside 'Gone Girl' - though it may struggle to pull in the audiences next weekend.
It was undoubtedly the star pulling power of Brad Pitt that helped David Ayer's World War II drama Fury accelerate past Gone Girl to the top of the box-office this weekend. Pitt and his tank buddies took $23.5 million in ticket sales to finish at No.1, whilst David Fincher's mystery thriller took a creditable $17.8 million to drop to second place.
'Fury' is said to be one of the most violent movies of the year
In third place was Fox's animated feature The Book of Life, which took $17 million, and Disney's Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day took $12 million.

In a recent interview over the recently released 'Fury', Brad Pitt discussed how the film focuses on the psychological aspects of war.
With the recent news that 'Fury' has topped the box-office over the course of it's opening weekend, Brad Pitt - the film's star - talks about what went into the creation of this hit film. In an interview with the BBC, Pitt explains how the film was never intended to act as a glorification of war. "War is hell," he says, while discussing the film's dramatic impact. In his own words, the film "was about the accumulative psychic trauma that every soldier carries to some extent."
Brad Pitt stars as Sergeant Don "Wardaddy" Collier, alongside Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña and Jon Bernthal. 'Fury' follows the story of these five men who work together within the titular Sherman tank, throughout the final days of World War Two. According to 'Walking Dead' star, Jon Bernthal, "This movie is family drama. It's about a family travelling through hell in a metal box."
