Jared Leto as the Joker: First Photo Revealed!

by at .

Last month, we got our first taste of Jared Leto's Joker voice, and fans went (in Leto's words) really, really, really crazy.

Now, following a Suicide Squad cast photo in which Leto was conspicuously absent (sparking a #WheresJared hashtag trend), director David Ayers has posted a pic that might be our first glimpse of Jared sporting his insane clown look.

Batman fans will recognize the image from the cover of the classic Alan Moore graphic novel The Killing Joke.

It's not hard to see why this is being regarded as the first pic of Leto in costume, but let's be honest  - it's really just Jared taking a mirror selfie with green hair, which is probably something he did for years, before he got cast.

There's no makeup, no purple suit, and it definitely doesn't look like Jared made good on his promise to "gain a lot of weight" for the role. 

We're not complaining, mind you. We're actually happy that Leto and Ayers are keeping character's appearance mostly under wraps.

So far we've seen Jared chop all his hair off and hilariously banter with fans in his serial killer voice, but that's it.

Sure, we have a rough idea of what Leto's Joker will look like (there are only so many directions you can go in with the Clown Prince of Crime), but we hope it'll come as a shock the first time we see him on screen.
