It’s been a couple of days since you saw new photos of Jared Leto’s version of Joker, which means you probably just now stopped laughing about it (until we see more pics from Suicide Squad, anyway). But here’s something to interest (and maybe frighten) you: special effects master Rick Baker has created his own rendering of Joker, one that is not only great, but kind of unnerving — you know, the way Joker should look. It’s too bad we might never see this version on the big screen.

FOX’s Gotham lay plenty of groundwork in Season 1 for Batman’s beginning (like, way too much in fact), but its first major Season 2 change proves a welcome one. Not only will Morena Baccarin reprise her role as future Bat-ally Dr. Leslie Thompkins, she’ll even stick around as a series regular.
Ladies, gentlemen and Batman fans of all types, our long national nightmare has come to an end now that Gotham has officially come to a Season 1 close. Bullets flew, Riddlers riddled and bats fluttered, so find out if "All Happy Families Are Alike" with our spoilery review of Gotham's first season finale!
The Batman vs. Superman trailer came and went, and we still didn't get a great look at Ben Affleck in the traditional Batman costume (we’ll leave that armored suit out of this). We’ve all seen that black and white promo shot, but what does Batfleck look like in clear, full color? Today, we have that answer.
The comic book movie craze may have exploded in recent years, but there have been movies and TV shows based on our favorite comics for decades. For all the action we see on screen, however, we hardly...
Jared Leto’s Joker will be an important component in Suicide Squad, but we may get to see him on screen before then, as it’s being reported that Leto will make a cameo appearance in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman before he makes his formal debut in Suicide Squad. If the rumor is true, it looks like DC is definitely taking another page out of the Marvel handbook, which isn’t exactly a bad thing. In other Joker-related news, those laughable tattoos from our first official look at Leto in character might not actually be a part of his look.
With a cast filled with villains and antiheroes from all corners of the DC comic book universe, Suicide Squad was already looking like one of the most jam-packed superhero movies of all time before Ben Affleck was reportedly spotted arriving at the film’s Toronto set. Although nothing has been confirmed, this certainly lend credence to the rumors that Batman (or at least Bruce Wayne) will be showing up in David Ayer’s supervillains-on-a-mission movie.
After selecting the best sci-fi movies of the last 25 years and the best comedies of the last 25 years, the only logical way to wrap up our #CountdownToUltron and Avengers 2 here on ScreenCrush was to choose the best superhero movies of the last 25 years as well. Initially, this was just supposed to be a brief essay. But on an innocent field trip to the world’s most advanced genetics lab, this blog post was bitten by a radioactive list and transformed into the gargantuan piece you see before you. On that day, we all learned a valuable lesson: That with great power must come great listicles.
Frank Miller hadn’t tweeted for over three and a half years before today. Guess he waited until he had something major to tweet about it. I would say this qualifies:
Rather than create an entirely new Batmobile or simply modernize the caped crusader’s more classic model, Zack Snyder basically took the tumbler from Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and combined it with the vague shape of the retro model for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. We got a peek at the tumbler last year via the first official photo of Ben Affleck’s brooding Batman last year, but now you can get a more thorough look at the hero’s super-vehicle with this new footage.
