Jared Leto’s Joker is already freaking us out

Even without his beautiful ombre locks and man bun, we still have reason to talk about Jared Leto’s hair. As you likely already know — because it’s been discussed a thousand times, and we’re going to keep on discussing it forever — Leto is playing The Joker in David Ayer’s upcoming Suicide Squad. We’re very excited about the movie, and very excited to see Leto play this iconic Batman baddie. As of today, we’ve got a better look at what he’ll look like in the movie. Honestly? It’s kind of chilling. And his hair is very green. But I guess that’s the point.

While Ayer has been using Twitter to give us Suicide Squad updates, Leto used Snapchat. Yup. He Snapped out a 10-second look at what he’s going to look like in the upcoming movie. His hair is very, very short, and (as previously mentioned) very, very green. It also just might be the angle this was taken at, but it kinda looks like he’s just removed some heavy lip makeup, yeah? Hopefully the full Joker, makeup and hair, will come our way soon. This will certainly do for now, even though it is a little bit chilling.

Here’s the Snap for you to study:

For comparison’s sake, here’s another iconic Joker (Heath Ledger) in full makeup. It’s a different look, but similar ingredients:

Just to quickly recap on what we know about the Suicide Squad: the cast is BEYOND (Will Smith, Margot Robbie, CaraDelevingne, Jared Leto, Viola Davis . . . and SO many more), it will open in summer 2016, and Jared Leto looks terrifying in the best way possible.

Never thought you’d see Jordan Catalano like this, huh? Just a reminder: Jordan Catalano. *swoons*

Keep Snapping those pics, Leto. We’re officially spooked and psyched.
