Jared Leto Says “A Lot” Of Joker Scenes Cut From ‘Suicide Squad’

With early reviews from Suicide Squad calling the film a jumbled mess, one thing most seem to agree on is Jared Leto’s Joker is pretty damn good. Unfortunately, it seems his Joker has relatively low amounts of screen time and new information from Leto himself could explain why.

When asked in an interview if there were any scenes with the Joker that didn’t make it into the final cut of the film, he had this to say:

“There are a lot of scenes that didn’t make it to the final film, hopefully they will see the light of day. Who knows.”

Another addition to the recent reports of the mess in the editing room of Suicide Squad. It is unclear at this time as to whether or not the film will be receiving an extended cut ala Batman V Superman, but maybe it’ll portray David Ayer’s darker vision for the film- and more importantly be a better, cleaner film. Leto seems a little sad about the cut scenes, so there very well may be a better version of the film left on the cutting room floor.

It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Suicide Squad opens in select theaters tomorrow night and everywhere Friday, August 5th.
