When the first image of Jared Leto as The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie first hit the net, fandom went wild at how stupid it looked, with a bunch of lame tattoos that made no sense (why would The Joker care about tattoos enough to sit for hours getting that work done) and caused him to look like a juggalo. But soon enough, hardcore DC fans, battle-hardened from years of stupidity from the company, found a way to defend the image, saying it was just a test image produced to create excitement for the movie and that the tattoos wouldn't be there in the actual film.
Well, Jared Leto fansite Just Jared obtained some new pictures from the set, and...
Oooh, that's gotta hurt. Yeah, the tattoos are still there. So it's time to accept that the Joker is now basically a less morbid Marilyn Manson. So now, that's settled, right fanboys?
To confirm, we spoke with noted fanboy Angus MacStickenbutt:
Outhouse: Angus, I assume you saw the new pictures from the Suicide Squad set.
Angus: Yeah, Harley Quinn looks pretty good, right?
Outhouse: Well, no, but you know that's not what we're talking about.
Angus: What do you mean?
Outhouse: Don't play coy with us. Look at The Joker. LOOK AT HIM!
Angus: What? I don't see the problem.
Outhouse: The tattoos and grill are real. They're not just to stir up interest on the internet. That's what he looks like.
Angus: No they're not.
Angus (sweating): When they saw how much interest the first photo got, they had to stir up even more interest. The more interest, the better. Ha ha! So they had him wear the tattoos and grill while filming the movie. Aren't they clever?
Outhouse: But it's not just drumming up interested if they film him with those. Now they'll actually be in the movie.
Angus: Nah, they're gonna remove those in post-production.
So it looks like there's some people who will never be convinced, but for the rest of you, sorry about this. No one wins in a situation like this, where a beloved villain is made to look like a doofus in a major motion picture.
Ah, who are we kidding? We definitely win, because we get to make fun of it. Suck it, DC fanboys!
