New 'Suicide Squad' Joker Photos Are Absolutely Terrifying

6/11/2015 4:30pm EDT
Jared Leto
New set photos from "Suicide Squad" have just hit the internet, and they make Jared Leto's Joker look even more terrifying than ever. In the photos, Leto's looking right into the camera- his smoldering stare, plus the eyeshadow, gold teeth, pale skin and menacing tattoos makes this Joker look positively revolting.

Leto was spotted wearing a heavy black cloak- clearly, the "Dallas Buyer's Club" Oscar winner was trying to hide his costume. But given the white collared shirt and purple bow tie, it looks like he's wearing a very comic-appropriate purple suit. Just like the Joker should.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice won't be the only DC Comics superhero film that Ben Affleck will star in as the Caped Crusader -- it appears that he'll be reprising the role for next summer's Suicide Squad.

The actor was spotted on the streets of Toronto last week and his stunt-double (who looks an awful lot like him) was filming a scene opposite Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and the stunt double for Jared Leto's Joker on Wednesday.

Some of the action was even caught on video and posted to YouTube, with the stars involved in a car chase that gives us a great look at the newly redesigned...

Less than a week after the first teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice leaked online someone has already created a parody of it.

The new teaser was, er, teased last week by director Zack Snyder, who posted a 21-second video heralding what would be the arrival of the film's first clip on Monday, April 20 at IMAX theaters.

Naturally, someone got a hold of the teaser (with Portuguese subtitles) and posted it online, prompting Warner Bros. to just go ahead and release the whole thing early (one would think the movie studios would stop doing stuff like this considering it happe...

No Butts About It: 30 Celebrity Smokers
Everyone knows smoking is bad, but many celebrities can't help lighting up. Maybe they have a tough time quitting the habit, or perhaps they smoke to keep off the weight. A cheeseburger is worse than a cigarette, right?

It may surprise you that some of these stars smoke - others you won't find so shocking.

Keira Knightley is a smoker, and it's probably part of the reason why she's so thin. She's also been accused of having an eating disorder. Early in 2014 she admitted that her grandmother and great-grandmother had anorexia but denied suffering from the disease herself. Either way, both h...

Ben Affleck went head to head with Bill Maher during a panel discussion of current affairs on HBO's "Real Time With Bill Maher" on Friday. The actor, who was on the show to promote his new film "Gone Girl," got angry when Maher and author Sam Harris began discussing radical Islamists.

Feeling they were stereotyping all Muslims, Affleck told them their talk was "gross" and "racist."

When Harris explained the need to criticize bad ideas and called Islam “the motherload of bad ideas,” Affleck responded, “That’s an ugly thing to say.”

Review: Unforgettable Rosamund Pike Gives Mediocre 'Gone Girl' T
It seems like just yesterday I was sitting in a dark theater in awe of the visceral visuals of a young David Fincher. The original demented mind behind such heart stopping work as "Seven," "Fight Club," "The Game" and even to a certain extent "Panic Room" seemed to be a new brash and bold voice in film that was able to have his stylistic cake and eat it too. But lately as Fincher has mellowed and matured, there’s been a desire to merely just tell the story minus pomp and circumstance and in the case of his latest outing "Gone Girl" it seems as though the trend of adding signature style is...

Celebrities are like regular people in that they occasionally overindulge in things they should consume in moderation.

But too many stars have battled drug addiction and alcoholism, and although many are currently sober, some still struggle to stay clean.

Batman is celebrating his 75th birthday at this year's Comic Con, and to honor the Caped Crusader, Warner Bros. unveiled a new photo of Ben Affleck wearing the hero's famed cowl at the annual pop culture event.

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is still nearly two years away, it's a good bet that DC Comics will be using the occasion to steal a little thunder from rival Marvel Comics, which will be trotting out several superhero films between now and then, beginning with this summer's Guardians of the Galaxy, which opens August 1 and will be the studio's main focus at Comic Con.

Batman v. Superman
Zac Snyder teased us this past Spring with a sober, depressing photo of Batman as portrayed by Ben Affleck. Now, we have confirmation that Superman in the 2016 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' will indeed be played by Henry Cavill. Warner Bros released this picture yesterday from the set of Dawn of Justice.

While the tone of this picture isn't quite as somber as Ben Affleck's Bat-pic, it still has a decidedly dark feel to it. Cavill's Superman costume hasn't really undergone any radical changes, and the overall look and feel of the character remains much the same as it was in the l...

Zack Snyder Reveals First Look At Ben Affleck As Batman

Zack Snyder teased a reveal of the new Batmobile yesterday, but today he delivered much more.

The director uploaded a photo of Ben Affleck as Batman standing next to his new wheels, which appear to be a blend of the classic Batmobile roadster and the new "Tumbler" we've grown fond of from Christopher Nolan's trilogy.

Affleck certainly looks buff in the smoky, black and white picture. If Batman vs. Superman is really following Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, they pretty much nailed the larger frame of an older Caped Crusader. In Miller's story, the aging hero is more of a blunt tra...

For Argo, Ben Affleck made like a hockey player and kept a beard for "the playoffs," AKA awards season. He shaved it off at an Oscars after-party when his film won Best Picture.

George Clooney, like Ben Affleck, grew a "producer beard" while Argo was striving for awards. He also rocked just a moustache for a bit, but for the last year or so he's been clean-shav...

But these screen presences who’ve been able to hold Hollywood’s attention even into their later years have also found a strong niche behind the camera, directing Oscar worthy films and Hollywood blockbusters that encapsulate audiences’ attention while reaping critics’ acclaim.
