We recently got our first official look at Jared Leto as the Joker….or did we? The photo was received with very mixed reactions. The tattoos made the Joker seem like a common thug, and even those were questionable. Of course, as is the case with every major comic book character, the reaction of the Internet was vociferous.
However, recent tweets, from Zack Snyder and the official DC page have us believing the photo was just a troll, which would actually be pretty clever on DC’s part. See the tweets below:

Some very cryptic tweets from both Snyder and DC. Also, the original tweet from David Ayer never mentioned it was an official look, only that it was a homage to the 75th anniversary. What do you think? Was the image a troll? If so, it means we have yet to see what Jared Leto as the Joker will look like.
