Suicide Squad: Less Jared Leto Than We Thought

Suicide Squad has certainly received mixed reviews, since the film made its theatrical release. On top of those troubles, word broke this week that Jared Leto had several of his scenes cut from the film.

The cast and crew of Suicide Squad were in the United Kingdom on a promotional tour when Leto spoke to TeleStar concerning the film’s editing process and how much of his acting made it into the film.

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.

With the massive physical and psychological preparations that Leto put into the character, its shocking that his scenes received as little screen-time as they did. One report even went so far as to say the Leto’s performance scarred his co-star Margot Robbie. Cutting parts of a performance that powerful was bound to cause controversy, especially given the film’s critical reception.

At this point, we can only hope that the extended cuts of Jared Leto’s Joker will find their way into the DVD release.

Perhaps that was the Warner Bros. plan all along.

Given that the film is directed by David Ayer, along with Executive Director Zack Snyder, one would have thought that Warner Bros. would have wanted Jared Leto’s star power to help drive the film to maximum box office profits.

Yet early reports are that the film is exceeding financial expectations, despite a tidal wave of negative reviews.
