Why so seriously terrifying, Jared?
We finally have the first look of Jared Leto’s very creepy portrayal of the legendary Batman villain The Joker in new film, Suicide Squad.
The 43-year-old Oscar Award-winning star is barely recognisable as he holds his hands to his lime green locks and screams.
Suicide Squad writer and director David Ayer shared the first photo of Jared in the role via social media, with the caption: "The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad @WarnerBrosEnt @DCComics."
The film, slated for an August 2016 release, is about a secret government agency that hires villains to execute black ops missions.
Jared will be joined by British model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne, who will play Enchantress, Australia’s Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith is set to be Deadshot, Jesse Eisenberg will take on Lex Luthor and Scott Eastwood has an unnamed role.
Batman's nemesis has been played by many famous actors, most notably the late Heath Ledger who won a posthumous Oscar for his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight. The Joker has also been played Jack Nicholson, Mark Hamill and Cesar Romero.
