Over the past couple of years, it has become somewhat of a sport, tradition and favorite past time for celebrities to arrive at any given Comic-Con in disguise, fooling fans and even some longtime friends. This past weekend was no different, as two very high profile members of the superhero movie community went incognito to enjoy NYCC 2015. One was from DC Comics, the other was from Marvel. Though, the Joker may have gotten the upper hand this time out.
First to admit he went to New York Comic Con to hide among the masses was Jared Leto, who even fooled some of the real-life Jokers laughing their way through the Javits center. On his personal Instagram, the method actor showed off his crazy looking Baboon mask, which features his insane eyeballs peering through the primate's nostrils. It's a scary getup, one that the Joker himself might don if he wasn't such an egomaniac.
At one point, Jared Leto even went so far as to pose with one of the many Jokers in attendance at NYCC. The poor guy didn't have a clue! Jared Leto now successfully joins the ranks of other actors such as Bryan Cranston, Daniel Radcliffe, Patton Oswalt and Andrew Garfield who have all tricked fans into thinking they were just another, ordinary sweaty nerd. But Jared Leto wasn't the only high profile genre actor traipsing across the Javits center unnoticed.
Avengers: Age of Ultron star Mark Ruffalo, has also shared photos of his clever NYCC 2015 disguise, which helped him go unnoticed throughout the weekend. He traded in the unmistakable green skin of the Hulk for the face of an old man smoking a cigar as he enjoyed the sights and sounds of the con experience. Sadly, we don't get to see a picture of him posing with someone as the Green Goliath.
Just this morning, it was rumored that Mark Ruffalo will next appear as Bruce Banner (aka The Hulk) in Thor: Ragnarok. Of course, that has yet to be confirmed by Marvel or Disney. Jared Leto makes his big screen debut as The Joker in Suicide Squad, which is set to premiere in late summer. While we got a first look at him in action during SDCC this past July, DC and Warner Bros. didn't bring any new footage, photos or posters to NYCC. Instead, we get to see The Joker in a Baboon mask...Which, if you ask me, is probably cooler than whatever the studio could have cooked up. Take a look. Did you see either of these cleverly disguised actors when you were at New York Comic Con this past weekend?
