SUICIDE SQUAD Joker Infuenced By Joker Graphic Novel By Brian Azzarelo - Designer Says

The new take on the Joker is controversial as it is bizzare, Ayer must have taken many inspirations from the character, but the director just cited one important and surprising one.

Suicide Squad's Joker is a controversial one. From the weird tattos, to the drug cartel lord influences, what CAN'T be said about this Joker. I, for one, have faith in Jared Leto. A great actor and a creepy presence as the Joker. Costume designer, Kate Hawley, talked about designing the character's look in a set visit. This is what she said, and teased the source of inspiration.

They're all wearing versace and Balmain and all of that. David wanted that world. When we go into this club scene in his and Harley's world, they're not the only freaks in there. There's this high end, almost like a Studio 54 thing. It's like everyone's [frick]ed up in this world and there's a normality to it. There's that beautiful book which actually i based some of the jester stuff we were playing around with.

When asked if he was talking about the graphic novel Joker then Hawley confirmed it, saying "That i'd say has the closest visual quality to what David is trying to get to".

Well, that is an interesting source of inspiration. What do you guys think? Do you like this Joker's look? Or preffered any other look? Share your comments below and make sure to share this post.

However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
