So it's looking we might be getting a combination of The Killing Joke, Dark Knight Returns, and All Star Batman & Robin Joker all rolled into one!?
I'm okay with that. Wasn't expecting this picture but I'm not turned off by it. I'm glad they went with something different instead of just repeating what was already done. There are many different versions of these characters and they should get attention.
Superman and Batman are a lot closer to their comic versions. Joker should be as well. The teeth right away tell me this is a Joker that will get physical and likely has had his face punched in by Batman in the past. The Batman we saw in the teaser trailer would do some damage to people he's fought. Everyone commented on that when the trailer was released. The Joker of all people should actually reflect that. This looks like a Joker that potentially could have been a threat to Batman and and going up against him several times over the years. If he's locked up he would naturally work out the same way other prisoners would. Why wouldn't he to protect himself and to basically rule over others?
Also from the other pictures we've seen he should show up in the white suit at some point.
Well, I'm kinda sold on Leto Joker. Considering the fan reaction when Ledger Joker was first revealed, I don't think initial appearances are any indicator of Jokerness. Although, the Ninja analogies seem so apt.
Would it be possible that he's a copycat Joker and not the real one? Like you don't find out until the end or something? I know that's almost certainly not the case, but it feels off, like he's trying too hard.
I think the biggest problem I have is that the tattoos are too clean... too neat... too designed... That kind of bothers me, but I guess it's just going to be a matter of seeing where they take this character. I think if the designs were closer to what you see in prison tattoos, or self applied tattoos with homemade tattoo needles, I could understand it... But as it is, the self-referential nature of the tattoos and their aesthetic screams to me too much.
