Here he is, in all his Clown Prince of Crime… um, grandeur: Jared Leto as the Joker in Suicide Squad, as seen on the eye-searing cover of Britain’s Empire magazine.
If you ask me, this is the dictionary definition of trying too hard!
I mean, does every square inch of him have to be tattooed? Does he need a cane?
Every time I start to think this production might be tolerable, some new piece of information is released that ruins it again.
Pretty sure this movie is going to suck.
Naturally I haven’t yet seen a movie that is still filming and I don’t read the current incarnation of the Suicide Squad comic book, but after seeing the cast in costume for DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad live-action movie — courtesy of director David Ayers — I’m glad this team’s mission is to commit suicide.
The roster includes (from left to right): Adam Beach as Slipknot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo.
Don’t laugh; it’s no small thing that the lead character’s onscreen costume will resemble what he wears for his four-color adventures in print every month — just ask the X-Men!
Star Ryan Reynolds unveiled his latest superhero threads — remember the atrocity that was his Green Lantern costume (and movie)? — this morning by aping a famous Burt Reynolds pose.
Of course a character that I despise gets a great costume…
