Leto’s Joker is suited up in a purple snakeskin trench coat; matching violet cane; blue baggy, drawstring “Arkham Asylum” pants; plenty of black ink; and slicked back, green hair. He has no shoes, no shirt, but likely problems galore, reported Variety.

This is a far cry from Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger’s takes on Batman’s arch nemesis.

Leto also opened up for the very first time about the physical and mental toll of playing the Clown Prince of Crime.

“There was definitely a period of detachment,” Leto said, according to, about his method acting, which involved staying in character around his costars.

“I took a pretty deep dive. But this was a unique opportunity and I couldn’t imagine doing it another way. It was fun, playing those psychological games. But at the same time, it was very painful, like giving birth out of my prick hole.”

Directed by David Ayer, “Suicide Squad” also stars Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Adam Beach as Slipknot and Jay Hernandez as El Diablo.

The movie hits theatres on August 5.
