After 'Suicide Squad' director, David Ayer, posted a cast photo from the table read on twitter everyone wondered "Where is Jared Leto?" Well, again Ayer went to twitter to dispel any rumors and provided another photo, this time of Leto with green hair holding a camera as an homage to the seminal cover of 'The Killing Joke' by Alan Moore and Brian Bolland.

Leto is playing the Joker in the DC Comics film adaptation of a group of imprisoned supervillains enlisted by a government agency to perform dangerous missions for lighter sentences in exchange. The initial reveal showed the additions of Adam Beach, Jim Parrack and Ike Barinholtz to the already star-studded cast. Their roles are rumored to be Ravan, Deathstroke and Dr. Hugo Strange respectively.
Now that we know for sure Leto is in Toronto and getting into the role how long before we get a clear look at him in full Joker mode?
Suicide Squad opens August 5, 2016. It also stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Viola Davis, and Scott Eastwood.
