The Internet Reacts To The New Joker

The Internet Reacts To The New Joker

Presenting...Jared Leto’s Joker.

Probably not what you were expecting, huh? Here’s the full image of the Suicide Squad’s take on the Joker, tweeted earlier today by David Ayer, its director:

The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad @WarnerBrosEnt @DCComics pic.twitter.com/LZXz0x947Q

Though it only shows part of the overall costume, there’s already a ton to analyze here. The forehead tattoo. The grills. The expression. Cynically, it feels like someone who is out of touch tried to come up with something edgy, and this is the result.

But, that’s just my take on it. What’s the internet saying about the new design? Overall, most people are poking fun at the design. People seem to think the design looks silly. And maybe there was nothing Ayer could have revealed that wouldn’t have been met with skepticism; Heath Ledger is a tough act to follow. Still, if nothing else, there’s always the possibility that the acting will make everyone change their minds. It’s too early to make judgement!

For now, though, there are jokes:

oh wow I can tell this version of the Joker is a real bad dude because his origin story involves falling into a vat of hot topic

I need to see the suit. This is a take that could work. Trying to do Ledger's Joker wasn't going to work.

April 25, 2015

Also Jared Leto's Joker shaves his armpits???

April 25, 2015

Wait so Jared Leto is playing Ninja from Die Antwoord playing Joker?

April 25, 2015

Everyone at Marvel just high-fived, happy to find they no longer have the worst comic book movie press this week! #JuggaloJoker

April 25, 2015

As long as the Joker behaves like a fucking lunatic, all will be forgiven.

The new Joker look is pretty awful. What the hell were they thinking?

April 25, 2015

To be fair to the Joker design, this guy would definitely freak me the hell out.

April 25, 2015

"So Jared, what's your vision for the new Joker?""Well first off obviously he's 'Down to Clown...'"

April 25, 2015

That Jared Leto Joker is certainly out there. But he's a fantastic actor so I'll wait to judge until there is actually something to judge.

April 25, 2015

Wow the joker and his gang look ready to take over gotham. pic.twitter.com/tDPsCtrujU

April 25, 2015

Jared Letos Joker looks absolutely bonkers.

April 25, 2015

Somebody sic the actual Joker on whoever did that character design for Suicide Squad. That is TERRIBLE. WOW.

April 25, 2015

really impressed by how Leto looks as the Joker pic.twitter.com/VAvpfYm0KD

April 25, 2015

If that’s what the Joker looks like, just imagine the Juggalette Harley Quinn we’re getting.

April 25, 2015

I have often said there's no wrong way to portray the Joker, as long as you do the basics.Now, I'm not sure. pic.twitter.com/2p5V6ojxwb

I love the idea of The Joker taking time to carefully tattoo "Ha" all over his body. The Joker, carefully applying bactene and moisturizer.

April 25, 2015

Ok so those ka-razzzy HAHAHA's are supposed to be tattoos right? So does that mean just the tip of the Joker's left nipple is tattooed?

April 25, 2015

Joker with tattoos? Is he an insane and twisted murderous clown or an angsty teenager defying his parents?

April 25, 2015

This is a Joker for the leather-trenchcoat-wearing, Crow-loving, wallet-on-a-chain types who have always been the Joker's biggest fans.

April 25, 2015

Joker looks insane and awesome.

April 25, 2015

The new joker looks disturbing

April 25, 2015

love this new joker design pic.twitter.com/8NHIHPgucg

April 25, 2015

Now that’s a Joker that likes EDM and uses Snapchat.

April 25, 2015

Joker's 'Damaged' is as subtle as the guy who writes 'Bat + Man' in a game of Pictionary. We get it! But...you're kinda missing the point

April 25, 2015

Let’s look at the bright side, guys. The Joker is supposed to be upsetting.

April 25, 2015

Oh hey, I used my minimal Photoshop skills to fix #SuicideSquad Joker. You’re welcome. pic.twitter.com/lzg7jTdX6s

April 25, 2015

Remember when everybody said Heath Ledger couldn't upstage Jack as the Joker?

April 25, 2015

so the new joker definitely vapes right

April 25, 2015

New joker looks like fan fiction. pic.twitter.com/x001Bsnjok
