Suicide Squad is about to begin production soon. However that is not stopping director David Ayer of getting fans hype for the film. Today Ayer tweeted a picture of Jared Leto holding a camera. I know some of you're saying big deal. Actually it's a huge big deal. If The Killing Joke Joker is the one we might get for the film. Then all I have to say is this is going to be The Joker for ages. As you see from the pic below Leto hair appears to be green. He's holding the camera the same position as The Joker. The only thing missing now is the killer smile. Personally I hope Ayer will ease up on the teasing. I would love The Joker's reveal to be kept under wraps until the film comes out.
Universe of Origin: Nightmare Alignment:
Hero For millennia, the vampire Ra’s al Ghul used his League of Assassins to manipulate Earth-19 from the shadows. His daughter, Talia, also cursed with vampirism, desired her father’s power. All Talia’s efforts failed until she finally found the edge that she required, a man who was strong enough to challenge the Demon’s Head: Bruce Wayne. Talia, knowing Bruce was Batman, spent years influencing him toward her ultimate goal of her father’s destruction. Yet she would leave nothing to chance. Talia created a child, the perfect union of her family’s vision and Bruce Wayne’s potential. She named the boy Damian, training him in secret before sending him to apprentice with her estranged lover, as Robin. Here, once more, Talia’s plans met with frustration. In the final confrontation between Batman and Ra’s al Ghul, Damian realized the depth of his mother’s depraved manipulation when Batman was infected by his grandfather. Damian watched as Batman, the man he loved and respected, became a ravening monster, succumbing to the curse of vampirism. The ashes of his father’s humanity kindled a burning certainty that the blood of al Ghul could only birth monsters. Now, feeling the compulsion of his own vampiric curse, the young Damien fights a war to scourge the filth of vampirism from the world.
Universe of Origin: Atomic Alignment:
Villain When they broke into an abandoned military bunker, those blighted survivors of the nuclear war couldn’t have realized what they were about to unleash on themselves. Within its derelict walls, they discovered a hibernating computer system. Sensing their movements, the system activated and they found attached to it the head of the Joker suspended in a preservation vessel. The Joker welcomed them with a cackle and told them it was time to build the future. The Joker told them that the military had wanted to use his unique mind to come up with nuclear war scenarios. Displaying a brutal pragmatism that the Joker appreciated, they put his head in a preservation vessel and got rid of the “superfluous” parts. Now that the “serious” world was dead and gone, he told the survivors, it was time to build a new “crazy” one. So desperate were the survivors that they decided to listen to the Joker and began building a new community within the bunker.
