David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad is gathering all sorts of positive and negative press as of late. Jared Leto will be starring as a new version of The Joker for DC’s cinematic universe, which may or may not play nice with the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
A lot of people have been complaining about Leto’s look and Ayer’s approach to the character, without even seeing a single piece of footage.
I personally am not the biggest fan of that tattoos, but I do respect Leto’s efforts and appreciate both Leto and Ayer for going in a new direction, without trying to copy everything that Heath Ledger and Christopher Nolan have done with the character in The Dark Knight.
Ledger won’t ever be able to be copied, so why bother? Thankfully, Leto and Ayer agree and are going with something new entirely and I don’t think we should be making such harsh reactions until we see a clip or a trailer at the very least.
