Over a year ago, when we got the first look at Jared Leto as The Joker, the reaction was…mixed, to say the least. A lot of people weren’t fond of his grill, the body tats, and the tat on his forehead. It’s a bold look, one that some fans still have a lot to say about since Suicide Squad‘s very successful opening weekend at the box office. In none of the film’s many, many flashbacks are the origins of Mr. J’s tattoos or teeth revealed, but writer/director David Ayer says they help tell the character’s story.
