The latest news about Jared Leto’s Joker portrayal has been having fans excited for the film, as the latest photo of Leto sporting green hair, has been uploaded by director David Ayer.
In the photo uploaded on the “Suicide Squad” director’s twitter account, a blurry Leto could be seen with green hair, putting up a semi grin, while holding up a Nikon camera to his face.
According to fans, the photo bears a striking resemblance to “The Killing Joke” edition of the Batman comics, where Joker was drawn smiling and also covering half of his face with a camera.
This has made their excitement greater.
In other news, Leto is rumored to be portraying the Joker character with minimal makeup.
Unlike Joker’s looks from the previous movies where the actors would wear heavy makeup to achieve Joker’s white face with his sinister eyes and lips, Jared is reported to be bleaching his face this time to achieve the white face his character is known for.
The 43 year old has been known in the industry to be one of the few actors who goes to great lengths in order to achieve the looks of their characters, however they may be.
According to fans, this is probably one of the reasons why he has won numerous awards for his acting, including the Oscars.
Two of his most famous looks included gaining 67 pounds as he portrayed the role of John Lennon’s killer, Mike Chapman, in the film titled “Chapter 27.” The film was released in 2007 and garnered positive reviews for Leto’s acting and his transformation.
Another famous look that Leto was recognized for was his recently released film with Matthew McConaughey titled “Dallas Buyers Club.” In the film, Jared played the role of Rayon, a transgender who is a victim of HIV.
Leto was able to lose a big amount of weight in order to fit the look intended for his role.
His portrayal was able to get him a Best Supporting Actor win at the Oscars.
