A lot of opinions online are negative, which is reminiscient of Heath Ledger being announced as Joker, but probably the opposite of when Ledger's Joker was finally revealed (as everybody liked it).
Comments on Leto's Joker range from being compared to Marilyn Manson to people questioning what the "beep" is WB doing with the reinvention of its characters, to just about everybody disliking the tattoos.
Now the memes have begun to hit the the net as well.
Check out the Jared Leto Joker memes that have been hitting various social networks below.
The Ben Affleck Bruce Wayne meme is pretty funny, as while Leto's Joker has "Damaged" tattooed on his forehead, Bruce has "I miss my mom and dad and that is why I fight."
(io9 put these together)
"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.
