Rafael Albuquerque has revealed his Fried Pie variant for Batman #1 via an Instagram post - but has he revealed more than that?

The cover features a Joker very reminiscient of Jared Leto's take on the character in the upcoming Suicide Squad film, wearing a white suit seemingly homaging The Dark Knight Returns. Is this a simple homage, or a glimpse at Rebirth's version of the clown prince of crime?

Albuquerque is the regular artist on Rebirth's Batgirl. Batman #1 is on shelves June 15.
