Last Friday was the Joker’s 75th anniversary, so director David Ayer tweeted out a first look at what Jared Leto would look like as the supervillian in 2016’s “Suicide Squad.” And our first reaction is: ay yai yai. He’s part tatted-up Hot Topic enthusiast, part scrawny hipster, part Juggalo, plus a dash of Michael Jackson with his solo glove. He also has a delicate tattoo that says “Damaged” on his forehead so, look out ladies—this one’s got baggage.
The internet, inspired by the sheer absurdity of the Joker’s new look, took up arms the best way it knows how: by making a plethora of memes riffing on the image.
We had an equally tatted up Batman:
