The cover shows Leto with vibrant green hair and a sinister stare, with a cane and without shoes. A slew of tattoos peek out from under a purple crocodile skin trench coat.
Leto's Joker appeared in a few frames of the film's trailer, which debuted at Comic-Con before surfacing online, but the Empire cover offers a full view of the famous Batman foil.
Suicide Squad features a Murderers' Row of DC villains, including Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Boomerang, Enchantress and Killer Croc, who form a secret government task force.
Suicide Squad hits theaters on Aug. 8.
