|SECOND STAR ENTERTAINMEMT|
this weekend we got our first view of Jared Leto as the Joker, David Ayers and Leto have been giving us little teases for the last month or so, but this is the first official image of the oscar winner in full blown joker mode. it's a bit jarring to be honest, and not at all what i was expecting. The joker has been immortalized in tow previous film incarnations first Jack Nicholson, and secondly Heath Ledger, and personally for me Mark Hammil's joker from Batman The Animated Series is always going to be the definitive Joker. This is something completely different, gone are the purple suits, and acid spraying corsages, in their place is a hardened criminal who has lost his mind, this Joker is not one who hides behind goons and henchmen, he has got the muscle to fight his own battles, he is covered in tattoos like a hardened gang leader, his teeth have been knocked out and replaced with silver caps. this Joker is in a deep dark spiral of despair found in the darkest corners of Gotham. i am interested to see how it all plays out. Now we wait with bated breath for Harley Quinn to give us a bit of a show.
