Jared Leto As The Joker!

The Joker / Suicide SquadYou can say a lot of things about how DC Entertainment is creating movies, though one thing you can’t say is that they’re playing it safe.  Superman killing Zod, the virtual destruction of Metropolis, they’re definitely looking to make themselves a real alternative to Marvel Studios.

ScreenRant recently posted the photo to the left, of Jared Leto from the David Ayer’s upcoming Suicide Squad.

And while it’s an interesting interpretation, I am not too fond of it.  It’s trying too hard to be edgy, and comes off as just a bit desperate.

In my eyes, the Joker is somewhat subtle.  You can’t necessarily tell what he’s going to do by looking at him, while this version seems to wear his intentions on his sleeve, so to speak.

I think it’s a bit much, and could use a huge dose of subtlety.
