The black and white photos, first revealed by Vanity Fair however then posted to Twitter by the film’s official account, present a Joker with heavy white make-up, smudged eyes and lips, and greasy, lengthy hair. The massive distinction, although, is that there is not a single tattoo in sight. Yup, the a lot debated ‘Broken’ brow design is gone.
