New Suicide Squad Teaser Reveals More Joker
During last night's game three of the NBA finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors (the Cavs won in a rout), Warner Bros. dropped a delicious new Suicide Squad teaser, giving us a bit more Joker (Jared Leto) than we've seen in the past. Leto recently spoke to Total Film about The Joker (a h/t to Digital Spy for pointing the way to this quote), saying he is “the only villain who may be more infamous is the devil. The Joker is an icon, a legend, the baddest of the bad and seems to be having the most fun. Hard not to be a fan of that. I knew I was going to have to dive deep and go to a place I had never gone before.” Leto's performance has a lot to live up to—the last time we saw the Joker on screen was in The Dark Knight, where the late Heath Ledger managed to somehow make us forget that Jack Nicholson had already turned in an incredible Joker performance in Tim Burton's Batman. If the cast and crew of Suicide Squad is to be believed, Leto brings it and then some in his take on the clown prince of chaos.
You'll get a few new peaks at the Joker in this teaser, as well as yet more proof that Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn might be the film's unofficial mascot. Come August 5, we'll get to see what director David Ayer has done with his huge ensemble cast, and find out if villains really do have more fun.
