Even if you’re not a huge fan of comic book movies, you’ll probably remember the controversy surrounding Jared Leto’s performance as the Joker in Suicide Squad. His performance was hyped for months, and his cast members told stories about how crazy he was on set, “He IS the Joker” they would say.
But then when the film was released, his character was barely in the movie. Most of his scenes were cut. It’s believed the studio wanted to stay away from showing the abusive side of the relationship between the Joker and Harley Quinn.
This obviously upset a lot of fans (and Leto himself) but most of them believed they would at least see the deleted scenes in the extended cut version of the movie. Sadly, that wasn’t the case either. The Joker was still missing.
Now, thanks to the internet, we are finally able to watch all of the deleted scenes involving the Joker. This shows the more violent side of the character, which is something that fans missed in the version of the film that was released in theaters.
This version of the Joker wouldn’t have saved the movie, but it would have at least made it more entertaining.
