Joker’s Wild: Your First Extended Look at the Craziest Villain of Them All

You've spent time with Suicide Squad primer mover Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), squad leader Deadshot (Will Smith) and the lovely, demented Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie). Now, ladies and gentlemen, it's time to greet the clown prince of chaos himself; the one, the only, the Joker (Jared Leto).

In our first extended look at Gotham's most gleeful ghoul, we get a much better sense of just much fun Leto had with the role. We also get the first glimpse of the romance between the Joker and Harley Quinn—the two share a passionate, no doubt psychotic kiss in the middle of this minute long peek. In fact, if this promo is any indication, it looks like part of the Joker's main mission in this film is to reconnect with Quinn—at one point he seethes to a hostage, "Where is she?"

Suicide Squad opens on August 5, heading into it's premiere with some serious momentum.
