Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar is a well-known fan of Batman. He dressed as the superhero with his on-again, off-again girlfriend Bruna Marquezine last winter, and he’s been glimpsed on social media wearing Batman-decorated clothing on several occasions. He even earned the nickname “Batman” from his former Barcelona teammates for his, shall we say, propensity to stay out late at night.
So on Monday, when Neymar debuted new dyed green hair on his Instagram story, the dots were obvious to connect:
The photo offered no caption or further hints, but it seems likely he’s going to be the Joker for Halloween.
More specifically, Jared Leto’s Joker from the 2016 film “Suicide Squad.” Neymar’s build and hairstyle aren’t too dissimilar from Leto’s interpretation. See for yourself:
Perhaps he’s even honoring his Brazilian international teammate Givanildo Vieira de Sousa, more popularly known as Hulk. You know where this is going:
Neymar should reveal his plans soon enough. Maybe the real truth is he just wanted to change up his look.
That would be slightly disappointing, and his time thus far with PSG has been anything but.
Neymar did in fact dress as Jared Leto’s Joker. Good work everyone!
