It”s be a divisive road for “Suicide Squad” and the movie is still in principal photography. After director David Ayer posted an image of Jared Leto”s Joker covered in tattoos, lines were drawn in the proverbial sand. Either you loved the idea of a modern Joker or you loathed the new Jokalo.
Of course, now there are rumblings that Ayer was merely paying homage to 75 years of Joker”s history with that Joker”s tattooed photo, citing DC Comics tweet in the aftermath.

With one hornet”s nest settling down from being kicked, Ayer released another salvo on Twitter. Meet the “Suicide Squad.”

As with any marketing bomb detonated on social media, the blowback was hard and fast. Twitter is alight with opinions, none of them moderate.

I think SUICIDE SQUAD looks pretty weird, which interests me. I like it, but then again, I like comic books and silliness.

That is a comic book image. I don't see how anyone can argue with that. #SuicideSquad

What do you guys think? Is this a bold new look for Gotham or a blight on par with Jokalo?
