The Joker takes his own sweet time, thank you very much.

We loved seeing yesterday’s first cast photo of Suicide Squad. But we wondered about the conspicuous absence of Jared Leto, who plays the Joker in the upcoming supervillain film.

Well, wait no longer, because here’s the first pic of the Oscar winner in the role, with cropped green hair and camera in hand – an homage to the famous cover of Batman: The Killing Joke from 1988.

It’s creepy, indeed! But in keeping with the maniacally comic character, director David Ayer included the #WhereIsJared hashtag in posting the reveal on Twitter.

For his part, Leto, 43, was feeling in an existential mood as he made an appropriately devilish reply to PEOPLE’s Tweet about his absence from the first photo.
