Jared Leto Says If He Dies Then Cut Joker Scenes From Suicide Squad Will Probably Surface

Warning: This article contains spoilers from Suicide Squad.

If you happened to see Suicide Squad already, there's a good shot you weren't pleased with the lack of screen-time The Joker received, especially since the character was heavily-marketed. Even the actor who played him, Jared Leto, isn't happy with many of his scenes ending up on the cutting room floor.

At about the halfway mark in the film, The Joker disappears for a long-stretch after the helicopter, he was in, crash lands. Where'd he go? “That’s a good question. I have no idea,” Leto told IGN. “I think he probably went and had a drink or something. Stretched – once you get blown up in a helicopter your muscles get a little tight.”

Will we ever see those cut Joker scenes? “Were there any that didn’t get cut? I’m asking you, were there any that didn’t get cut? There were so many scenes that got cut from the movie, I couldn’t even start,” Leto said. “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 all that stuff seems to come out.”

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?
