Let’s get up close and personal with the Snyder Cut’s Joker.
As we inch closer to the HBO Max premiere of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, a new look at Jared Leto‘s Joker has been revealed. We first learned Leto’s version of the Clown Prince of Crime would hop from David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad over to Snyder’s Justice League cut in late 2020. Then, in January, we got our first look at the Snyder Cut interpretation of Leto’s Joker. Well, I say “first look” but technically, it was the first obscured look at Leto. The photo shared by Snyder showed us an out-of-focus Joker holding up the Joker player card, with hints that the DC villain now has long hair and possibly a new wardrobe.
On Tuesday, Vanity Fair shared new photos of Leto’s Joker, courtesy of Snyder. These two photos give us a very clear look at Leto and tease what kind of villain we’re getting this time around. As teased in the first photo, Leto’s Joker has longer hair now and is not as polished as his Suicide Squad interpretation. In fact, this Joker looks more at home in a meatpacking plant than he does in a nightclub, with ominous stains on his clothes and a menacing look on his face. It’s still unclear how Leto’s Joker will figure into the Snyder Cut story, but it cannot be good.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League premieres on HBO Max on March 18. See the second new image of Leto’s Joker below. For more, find out what’s coming to HBO and HBO Max in February.
