In case you somehow managed to avoid the entire internet for the past 24 hours, yesterday Suicide Squad director David Ayer tweeted out the first look at Jared Leto’s interpretation of the Joker for the upcoming super villain film.

This being the internet, reactions to the look were decidedly mixed, with some comics nerds playing spot-the-reference (the most obvious being the iconic “The Killing Joke” cover), and others riffing off the dozens of potential jokes. Is this dude going to a engineer a city-wide crime spree or get kicked out of a shitty pop punk band for showing up late to practice again?
Anyway, the movie is probably going to be fine. It will be fine.
