Suicide Squad is finished…well, for most the actors anyway. After beginning filming back in mid-April, principal photography is nearing completion on the supervillain-led blockbuster. To celebrate his finished involvement, Jared Leto bid farewell to The Joker by capturing the removal of one of the Clown Prince of Crime’s most distinguishing physical features.

Yesterday, Leto posted this photo on Instagram of his trimmed emerald locks with the caption "goodbye" next to an assortment of green emojis. The 30 Seconds to Mars singer has been walking around with green hair for months, so he’s probably glad he can finally walk around in public without sporting Joker’s unique hairstyle. While principal photography is almos done, no doubt the production has allotted time for reshoots if needed either later this year or sometime next year. If Joker is needed for any of these scenes, that means Leto will have to go through the hair dying process again, which he may not look forward to.

Leto wasn’t the only who celebrated their finished Suicide Squad shoot in a unique way. While on their way to the film’s wrap party, Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney, who play Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang, respectively, visited a charity lemonade stand hours after shooting their final scenes in Toronto, Canada. However, Leto certainly takes the cake for most distinctive transformation back to normal. Aside from Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Killer Croc, Leto’s Joker was the character that had the most unusual appearance, from his tattooed white skin to the ruby lips, so his de-characterization is more radical than almost everyone else’s.

Suicide Squad had a more eventful filming process than most other blockbusters. Early in the shoot, leaked set photos were popping up everywhere, from a car chase between The Joker and Batman to the Squad itself in action on the streets. However, that started to diminish once the cast and crew finished their on-location shoots and moved to other sets. Then during San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros showed a sneak peek of the movie to con-goers during the DC panel, but after that footage was recorded and leaked, the studio officially released the footage online two days later. (See above.) Over a month later, the actors have completed their jobs (aside from the required press tours), but there’s still a long way to go until the film is completed. With post-production moving along, hopefully Warner Bros will start releasing more official Suicide Squad stills in the coming months.

Moviegoers can look forward to seeing Joker and the rest of the incarcerated DC villains when Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
