Axel-In-Charge: Bringing "Dead No More" to FCBD, the Original "Civil War's" Legacy
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie is still more than three months away, but we’ve already plenty of related merchandise, from DC Collectibles statues to Pop! vinyl figures to Harley Quinn’s “Daddy’s Lil Monster” shirt. Now add to the list a Joker action figure that not captures that tattoos of the film’s Clown Prince of Crime, but also his, let’s say, unhinged nature.
With Jared Leto’s Joker likely poised to be the Halloween look for guys this year — seriously, there are going to be at least three Jokers, and (still) two Spartans, at every party — Wholesale Halloween Costumes has released a helpful tutorial to show you how to get the hair and makeup just right.
Of course, the undeniable tricky part is the body art, which isn’t covered in the video. For that, all of those trick-or-treat Jokers may be to count on the steady hands of their own Harley Quinns.
Reaction to Jared Leto’s tattooed Joker from Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad has been decidedly mixed, but cosplayer Mary (aka SuperMaryFace) embraced the new look in a series of photographs by James Gilstrap.
With the help of makeup artist Devan Weitzman, Mary is transformed into the Clown Prince of Crime for an image set that’s both fun and unsettling while channeling the spirit of the original photograph posted by director David Ayer.
Despite all of the teasing by Suicide Squad director David Ayer and star Jared Leto, the unveiling of the heavily tattooed Joker on Friday still caught a lot of fans by surprise. While we’re no closer to understanding what led the filmmaker to arrive at that look, FilmCow may be able to offer insight into the thinking of the Clown Prince of Crime.
By now we’ve all seen, or at least heard about, the Twitter-rocking star-studded selfie orchestrated by Ellen DeGeneres during Sunday’s 86th Academy Awards ceremony. Snapped by Bradley Cooper (who actually owns the rights to the image), the photo was retweeted a 3.2 million times, shattering the previous record of more than 778,000 set in November 2012 with the election-night post from President Obama.
While the not entirely spontaneous stunt certainly paid off for ABC and Samsung, which was reportedly promised airtime for the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone as part of its $20 million sponsorship and ad buy, they weren’t the only ones to get promotional mileage out of the photo.
