Empire Magazine has gone and given us a full on dump of new images from the upcoming DC film, Suicide Squad, including a few new shots of Jared Leto’s already infamous Joker.
The feature story comes complete with a full cover shot of Jared Leto’s pimped out Joker along with a full spread of photos and stills from the film. In addition to the photos, Empire managed to talk to Leto a little bit about his experience playing the Joker and of course Leto had some choice words for them…
According to Leto, “There was definitely a period of…detachment, I took a pretty deep dive. But this was a unique opportunity and I couldn’t imagine doing it another way. It was fun, playing those psychological games. But at the same time it was very painful, like giving birth out of my prick hole.”
In addition to that, he went on to explain, “I always get the sense that The Joker may be much older than people think. It’s something different. If you don’t break rules, you’re not going to strike new ground. I think I’ll be cooling down for the rest of my life.”
We’re still a little on the fence about the portrayl of this Joker, but we’re definitely interested by what some of Leto has to say on the matter. For better or worse, we’re clearly getting something new and only time will tell if it’ll payoff of not. Either way, here is the Empire cover along with a new still of the Joker in a straight jacket for you to look at while you bide your time for the actual movie release.
