This summer, there’s a new Joker moving into Gotham City and he’s more than just the Clown Prince of Crime! Eight years after Heath Ledger‘s unforgettable turn as the Joker in The Dark Knight, Jared Leto is putting his stamp on the character in Suicide Squad. This will be the third movie in the DC Extended Universe, and Leto will probably have several opportunities to play Batman‘s greatest adversary, but he only has one chance to make a first impression!
YouTube user AparTall has put together a supercut of every Joker scene from the previously released Suicide Squad trailers. Believe it or not, that amounts to just under a minute of footage! Presumably the studio is showing some restraint and holding back the juiciest of Joker scenes for the actual movie. There’s definitely a different flavor of madness to this Joker, and Leto is certainly intimidating in the brief scenes that we’ve seen so far. Leto appears to have a very different take on the Joker, and it will be interesting to see if audiences embrace his performance. Leto doesn’t have to match Heath Ledger’s Joker, he just has to be entertaining.
For those of you who want a better view of the footage, this video also includes an encore of the scenes in slow motion to that should let you explore the clips at your own pace.
Suicide Squad will be released on Friday, August 5.
