Warning: This photo may haunt your dreams.

We've slowly been seeing Jared Leto transform into his role as the Joker, from the moment he popped up at Paris Fashion Week with a platinum 'do and Karl Lagerfeld swag in March. Since then, he's been out and about showing off his new green hair and looking noticeably thinner.

Still, we haven't seen the actor's full transformation into the maniacal DC Comic's character...until now. Suicide Squad writer and director David Ayer revealed the first photo of Jared in the role...and chances are it will creep you out. "The Suicide Squad wishes you a Happy Anniversary Mr. J! #Joker75 #SuicideSquad @WarnerBrosEnt @DCComics," David captioned the shot, which shows Jared looking insane, with his mouth and eyes wide open as if he's screaming. His green hair is also visible, as are "HAHAHA" tattoos all over his body, a skull joker tattoo on his chest and a "damaged" tattoo on his forehead.

The late Heath Ledger was the last star to play the role, winning an Oscar for his portrayal of The Joker in 2009. Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters in August 2016 and also stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.
