‘Suicide Squad’ Director David Ayer Debunks Jared Leto Joker Rumor

Suicide Squad director David Ayer has shut down a recent rumour regarding how he felt about Jared Leto’s Joker performance.

This weekend has been dominated by an article from The Hollywood Reporter that discussed how Jared Leto tried to stop Warner Bros. from letting Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker from getting made. The article also goes on to discuss how Jared Leto’s performance as the Joker in Suicide Squad was ill received by many, including the director of the picture, David Ayer.

A fan on Twitter messaged Suicide Squad director David Ayer asking if what the report said regarding his displeasure of Jared Leto’s Joker was true. David Ayer then replied on Twitter to state that what the article had to say was not factual.

Here’s what Suicide Squad director David Ayer had to say on the matter.

This is turning into a very interesting mess. The entire article presented by The Hollywood Reporter essentially suggests that Jared Leto was vilified by everyone from the studio to the director of Suicide Squad, yet it now appears that David Ayer had no qualms with his performance. With the production history of Suicide Squad so muddled and Jared Leto’s behaviour towards Warner Bros. being so obscene, it’s hard to tell what’s factual and isn’t. In the end, it’s good to know that David Ayer had an opportunity to debunk the Jared Leto rumor.

James Gunn is expected to deliver on the fresh take on the supervillain team in his upcoming movie, with Idris Elba playing a new character on the team, David Dastmalchian starring as Polka-Dot Man, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, and Steve Agee voicing King Shark.
