While Suicide Squad Extended Cut did add over 11 minutes of previously deleted footage including more scenes of Jared Leto's Joker, quite a few scenes were still left behind on the cutting room floor.
A new video (above) outlines which scenes were left out of the Extended Cut, from something as simple as Joker banging his head on the window of his purple Lambo to more telling scenes like when he kills and beats several innocent people.
Unfortunatley, Joker only got 7 minutes of screentime in the theatrical version of Suicide Squad and Jared Leto's personal incarnation of the Clown Prince of Crime was grossly underused and underdeveloped.
Joker was portrayed as a crazy love sick puppydog and virtually harmless. All he wanted to do was get his gal Harley Quinn back by his side in a romantacized version of their tortured, abusive comic book love story.
The Extended Cut added more depth to every character, including Joker and Harley Quinn, but we still didn't see just how violent Joker could be.
The scenes in the above video mostly show Joker acting out his violent, maniacal tendencies, which would have helped develop his character more.
After watching the above video, maybe we can stop asking Jared Leto why his version of the Joker took him so much time and effort to perfect.
As with any movie, what is actually written and then filmed, doesn't always come out of the post-production process in the theatrical cut.
It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
