Jared Leto’s Joker is going to bring nightmares!

Suicide Squad director David Ayer posted a brand new photo of the iconic DC character to Twitter on Friday, revealing the maniacal villain in all his glory.

“The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad,” Ayer tweeted.

First 'Suicide Squad' Photo of Jared Leto as the Joker Is a Classic Callback!

In the new image, Leto dons the Joker’s signature green hair, decaying teeth and a body marked with tattoos, featuring a set of playing cards as tombstones, his maniacal laugh (“HAHAHA”) and classic red lips.


Just two weeks ago, Ayer posted a photo teasing Leto as the Joker, who recreated the classic pose on the cover of Batman: The Killing Joke. And a day before, the director tweeted the first cast picture following a read-through.

Suicide Squad, which follows a group of DC anti-heroes, stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevigne, Viola Davis and Scott Eastwood.

Suicide Squad hits theaters Aug. 5, 2016.
