When WB released the first look at Jared Leto as the Joker for Suicide Squad, the internet exploded.

Reaction swung both ways, but the tattoos seem to be what most fans disliked.

Then speculation began with thought the image wasn't really Leto's Joker as rumors began swirling the tattoos were just for Joker's 75th Anniversary.

A reported Hollywood insider even said the image isn't what Leto will look like in Suicide Squad, and then a second rumor stated the tattoos were just being used to cover something else up.

Now former Spawn and Quasar artist, Greg Capullo, who now draws Batman for DC Comics, has added some fuel to the fire.

During a DC Comics Twitter Q&A, Capullo stated he thought the look was "pretty rad," but then offered, "I heard it was just a troll."

"Suicide Squad" has an August 5, 2016 release date directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, and Viola Davis is playing Amanda Waller.
