Back in April, Skrillex played an unreleased collaboration with the rapper Rick Ross during a DJ set in Atlantic City. Ross's verse contains a reference to Suicide Squad, so listeners were quick to speculate that the song is slated for inclusion in the forthcoming Suicide Squad movie. The film is due out later this summer, and it stars Will Smith and Jared Leto.

Skrillex recently Snapchatted a snippet from the video shoot for the mysterious track. The site Batman News reports that Leto will also appear in the music video, and that the famous actor will play the role of the Joker in the clip -- as he does in the Suicide Squad movie itself. Leto recently posted pictures of his Joker get-up on Twitter.

Billboard reached out to representatives for Skrillex and Warner Brothers for comment, but had not heard back at time of publication.

Check out Skrillex's video teaser and Instagram post below.
