We recently learned that Jared Leto’s take on the Joker would appear in the Director’s Cut of Zack Snyder’s Justice League and now we have our first teaser image of how his Clown Prince of Crime will look in this 4-hour epic.
Described by Zack Snyder as a “road-weary Joker,” this version will honor what David Ayer created in 2016’s Suicide Squad. Snyder even shouted out Ayer in his tweet, tagging the Suicide Squad director and noting that he’s “honored to have our worlds collide.” Check out the tweet from the filmmaker below:

In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid, and their dreadful intentions.
