Suicide Squad: Jared Leto shares new Joker, Harley Quinn photos
Suicide Squad is finally hitting theaters on Friday, but the Joker still has a few surprises up his sleeve.
Jared Leto took to Instagram this weekend to share some new photos of everyone’s favorite green-haired villain. Although most of them are solo shots of the Clown Prince of Crime himself, one features the Joker getting face-to-face with his former psychiatrist Dr. Harleen Quinzel — a.k.a. Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
Quinn and the Joker, of course, have a notoriously twisted relationship, and the beginning of Suicide Squad finds the Joker pining for his former therapist. It’s a role that Leto took extremely seriously — as evidenced by the countless news stories about him sending his cast mates live rats, switchblades, and unwrapped condoms.
“You’re kind of walking upon hallowed ground, and it deserves the very best that you can do,” Leto told EW last month. “It takes over your life and that’s what I needed to do for myself.”
Still, Leto recently revealed that not all of his gifts were the stuff of nightmares, and he told E! News that he also sent cupcakes and wrote poems for his costars — as well as a few crazier presents that haven’t been talked about in the press.
“I did get thank you note for some of these gifts, mind you,” Leto said. “I’m not going to say who or what or what specific gift was thanked, but there was a lot of, ‘Joker likes to share his toys.’”
