Although he's not a member of Task Force X, Joker has been advertised as a key player in Suicide Squad for over a year now, to the point that he's been one of the main marketing focuses. However, Jared Leto isn't happy with many of his scenes ending up on the cutting room floor.


During an interview with IGN, Leto expressed his frustration with how much of his Joker material didn't make it into Suicide Squad, and if he were to suddenly die, maybe that could be the catalyst for the scenes being released to the public. In his words:

"Were there any that didn't get cut from the movie? I'm asking you, were there any that DIDN'T get cut? [...] Oh, there were so many scenes that got cut from the movie, I couldn't even start [to name one that he was sad to lose]. I think that the Joker, we did a lot of experimentation on the set, we explored a lot. There's so much that we shot that's not in the film. [...] If I die anytime soon, it's probably likely that it'll surface somewhere. That's the good news about the death of an actor is like, you know, all that stuff seems to come out."

As reporters left the interview room they told Leto they hoped that wouldn’t be happening anytime soon, to which he “rather darkly responded” by quipping: “We all die.”

In addition to negative reviews, reports emerged that there were two different edits of the movie being worked on simultaneously, one done by director David Ayer and the other done by the studio, Warner Bros., with the latter ultimately deemed the version that was released in theatres.

Written and directed by David Ayer based on the characters from DC Comics, the film stars Will Smith (“Ali”), Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Joel Kinnaman (“RoboCop”) and Viola Davis (“The Help”). The cast also includes Jai Courtney (“Insurgent”), Jay Hernandez (“Takers”), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (“Thor: The Dark World”), Ike Barinholtz (“Neighbors”), Scott Eastwood (“Fury”), Cara Delevingne (“Paper Towns”), Adam Beach (“Cowboys & Aliens”), and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut. It is produced by Charles Roven and Richard Suckle, with Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder, Colin Wilson and Geoff Johns serving as executive producers.

Suicide Squad is now playing in 3D, and in 2D, and in select IMAX 3D theaters.
