Jared Leto: They cut “a lot” of my Joker scenes out of ‘Suicide Squad’

The Suicide Squad cast is over in the UK promoting their new movie, and TeleStar caught up with the Joker himself, Jared Leto. Leto was asked if there was a scene that didn’t make it into the final cut of the movie that he wish had, and apparently there were a lot of them!

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

That’s pretty disappointing, especially if fans really like Jared Leto’s Joker (which judging by the reviews, they probably will).

News broke today citing some behind-the-scenes drama around the production of Suicide Squad. Apparently there were two versions of the movie being worked on simultaneously — a Warner Bros. version and a David Ayer version. WB’s ultimately won out, and maybe that one had less Joker for some reason?

No word yet on any kind of “Ultimate Edition” Blu-ray like they did for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but I really hope there is so fans can see the Joker footage that was cut out of the movie. It sounds like Leto wants the world to see it too!
