We're only a few months away from finally seeing Jared Leto's highly-anticipated portrayal of one of cinema's most sinister characters.
The Suicide Squad director David Ayer recently said 'the world stopped' the moment Leto's Joker walked onto set.
His co-star Will Smith also revealed that he's technically never actually had a conversation with Leto because he has been in character since the pair met.
"He was all in on the Joker... I'm looking forward to meeting him," Smith admitted on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 Radio show.
Now the man himself has teased us by posting a Snapchat video on Twitter, introducing fans to the bearded Joker.
In all previous images of the 44-year-old in character, he has appeared clean-shaven, so it's not certain whether the facial hair will appear in the film.

He has some awfully big clown boots to fill after Heath Ledger's Oscar-winning performance in The Dark Knight, but early signs suggest the Joker is going to be absolutely terrifying.
Suicide Squad also stars Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Ben Affleck as Batman and Will Smith as Deadshot. The film lands on British and American shores on August 5.
Written by Liam Bond.
