The signature Leto long locks are no more. The former 30 Seconds to Mars frontman and Oscar-winner (“Dallas Buyer’s Club”) Jared Leto has officially cut and dyed his hair to take on the role of the Joker in the coming "Suicide Squad" movie.

A tease from director David Ayer’s Twitter account confirmed a newly shorn Leto for the part:

The next step of the process was to prepare for his character's signature green hair. Such a vibrant cartoon green wouldn't show on the naturally brunette Leto, so a thorough bleaching was in order. He revealed the new bright blond 'do at Paris Fashion Week moments after Kim Kardashian was spotted with similarly bleached hair. No word yet if she's starring in another superhero franchise.  

Speculation continues as to how the Joker will factor into the dynamics of the team. Margot Robbie is set to play his off-and-on again love interest and Suicide Squad member Harley Quinn. Other actors confirmed for the highly anticipated D.C. movie include Will Smith (Deadshot), Joel Kinnaman, (Rick Flagg), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller) and Jesse Eisenberg’s reprise of Lex Luthor from “Batman vs. Superman.” Principal photography for "Suicide Squad" is scheduled to begin in April.

With each of the previous big screen iterations of the Joker drawing from different storylines and character arcs, there’s a lot of room for Jared Leto to add his personal twist to the character. The characteristic green hair and purple suit gets a makeover for every on-screen version. No two Jokers are quite the same. Consider when Jack Nicholson took the Joker’s brightly colored suits and mischief to new diabolical heights in Tim Burton’s 1989 rendering of the classic D.C. story. In Christopher Nolan’s darker 2008 reboot, Heath Ledger help cement his Joker as a chilling killer who “just wants to watch the world burn.”

What Leto will bring to the role remains to be seen, but it will be very easy to spot him from now on with green hair.  

“Suicide Squad” is set to open nationwide Aug. 5, 2016.
