To celebrate the 75th anniversary of DC Comics' legendary villain, Suicide Squad director David Ayer revealed the first look at Jared Leto as Joker.

The new look has the traditional Joker green hair and red lips, with twist by Ayer, which features blackened teeth, "HAHA" tattoos across his chest and the word damaged tattooed on his head.

Rolling Stone reports that the new image and the blurry photo of Leto are both inspired by frames taken from the classic graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke.

"Considering that Ayer has twice hinted at that Alan Moore-written origin story suggests that Leto's Joker will have more in common with the graphic novel's rendition of the supervillain than the versions previously portrayed on the big screen by Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger. In The Killing Joke, the Joker is introduced as a failed stand-up comic turned small-time hood who is chemically disfigured and driven insane all in "one bad day."" via Rolling Stone.
