This is a heck of a way to celebrate The Joker's 75th birthday.

Suicide Squad director David Ayer revealed the first look at Jared Leto as The Joker in order to celebrate the Clown Prince of Crime's birthday.

Suicide Squad stars Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Also in the mix of the supervillain-heavy film are Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Viola Davis, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholtz, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Scott Eastwood and Common.

The film centers on a group of imprisoned villains who are recruited by the government for covert operations. It is possible that the film could see cameos from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor) and Ben Affleck (Batman)

The Warner Bros. film is set for a August 5, 2016 release date.
