He has a “J” tattoo that could easily stand for Jason, who he used to be. There’s also evidence in the Batman v Superman trailer. Not only the paper, but also that destroyed suit sure look like something Joker would pull, but would he know Wayne is Batman & where the Batcave is? The biggest evidence may also be again the tattoos. While the Joker of old may not have waited around for hours to get those things, a former protege of Batman who felt abandoned by him when the original Joker beat him with a crowbar and left him for dead may exactly be up for that kind of thing. It may even explain the grill if original Joker knocked Jason Todd’s teeth out.
