Concept art has no limits. And with a character like The Joker there is limitless possibilities for the maniac to present himself in the DC world. Now, fans and audience members get to see the Suicide Squad bad guy in a different light, with new images leaked from production.
With a different set of tattoos, the most prominent still is from the chin down to show his name "The Joker" in bold red and black ink. Scattering lots of "HA's" in the process. It is not known how this look would have affected Leto's performance or style in any way, shape or form, but it could have played a role in transforming people's opinions about him.

The remainder of the images focused on the little 1% details like the villain's shorts, bling, guns and attire. Sporting something a lot more dark and less colorful than we saw on the big screen this year. Leto's take on the character was far more image conscious than previous editions from Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger. And it seems ironic that he was slated for looking like a Gen Y punk on steroids.
Other outfits indicated that he would wear less facial makeup and instead transfer the flash to his suits. The final product is for the viewer to decide, but the Clown Prince of Crime might have been received with a touch more fanfare if the studio went another angle on this one.
Jai Courtney Talks Captain Boomerang Spinoff
Australian Jai Courtney was one actor praised for his take on Captain Boomerang. And, while the actor did not outline any details from DC, he held out hope for his own movie.
"Listen, they keep their cards very close to their chest," stated Courtney. "I actually have no idea, I pray the answer is yes. I certainly don't feel like I'm done with that character. I had a lot of fun playing him, and I don't feel like anyone is done with that franchise, certainly not yet. So, I hope so, sooner or later. The studio is very busy at the moment, director David Ayer is directing something else at the moment, but I'm sure they have plans, just none that they've shared with me."
