Jared Leto has teased a first glimpse of his portrayal of the Joker in the Suicide Squad movie.

In an image tweeted by the film's director, David Ayer, and later retweeted by the star on Thursday, Leto’s platinum crop is replaced by a short jade style. It's the only look so far of the 43-year-old star as the infamous Batman supervillain—who was last played on the big screen by the late Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight—so we have yet to see him with a full face of menacing makeup.

The big reveal comes after the heartthrob was noticeably absent from a cast photo that showed his co-stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Viola Davis gathering for the first script reading this week.

Suicide Squad is Leto’s first role since 2013’s Dallas Buyers Club, which landed him an Academy Award for best supporting actor. The DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. film also features Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, and Jai Courtney, and is slated for release in 2016.
