We’re You Wondering About The Jokers Tatoos?
Suicide Squad star Jared Leto put a lot of effort into playing the Joker. In preparation for the role, the actor met with “psychopaths and people who had committed horrendous crimes.”
Maybe that’s where Leto picked up the used condoms and anal beads?
“I knew I had to be committed as much as possible,” Leto said. “I had to be committed beyond belief. And I did what I needed to do deliver the best I possibly could.”
While Leto did what he had to in order to develop the Joker as a character, director David Ayer had “some very specific ideas” for the character’s look. The tattoos, specifically, were Ayer’s idea—and part of the Joker being redefined for a new generation.
“He does feel like a modern-day gangster, because… he’s always been a gangster,” Ayer said.
Warner Bros.’ anti-hero flick hits theaters on August 5. Suicide Squad’s latest trailer, which features all new footage, debuted in early April.
