Suicide Squad director David Ayer in a recent interview with Yahoo Movies, went on to discuss the nature of The Joker’s tattoo’s, how they are relevant and how they fit into the overall DC Comics canon.
ON HOW THE TATTOO’S RELATE TO THE CHARACTER
“The tattoos tell a very specific story,” Ayer continues. “And eventually people will decipher them and understand what’s going on, but obviously they’re contentious, any time you do something new it’s contentious. There’s very specific stories and easter eggs in those tattoos. And even his teeth, there’s an entire story behind that which is absolutely canon. It’s putting his history on his body. This Joker is a little more working class, who I believe could live in our world.”
ON HOW THE JOKER IN THIS VERSION MAY OPERATE
“A lot of it has to do with creating a character with some kind of history and footprint in our world,” Ayer tells us. “And not have this sacrosanct being outside of our continuum, our reality. If a guy like him really existed today, where would he come from? How would he do business? Who would he know? What would he look like? In my mind, I took a lot of inspiration from drug lords on Instagram. It’s a great way to understand the lifestyle of a villain.”
