WASH­ING­TON: One of many ques­tions to come up dur­ing Sui­cide Squad’s the­atri­cal run was what hap­pened to all of Jared Leto’s Joker footage? We may get the an­swer with an “ex­tended cut” of the movie to be re­leased by Warner Bros dig­i­tally on Novem­ber 15 in­clud­ing 13 ex­tra min­utes.

Jared Leto told re­porters Warn­ers left a good por­tion of his per­for­mance on the cut­ting room ta­ble. It was ru­moured that af­ter the po­lar­is­ing crit­i­cal re­sponse to the dark­ness of Bat­man v Su­per- man: Dawn of Jus­tice, Warner Bros wanted to lighten things up a bit with Sui­cide Squad dur­ing re-shoots. Fans com­plained de­spite Leto’s Joker be­ing a huge part of the mar­ket­ing cam­paign, he was barely in the movie.

A good chunk of new scenes could be more Joker/Har­ley Quinn flash­backs, since most new footage we see in the trailer is of Rob­bie’s char­ac­ter wear­ing glasses as Dr Har­leen Quinzel. That set of scenes, in­clud­ing a scene where Quinzel holds a gun to the Joker’s head, didn’t make it to the movie. – Wash­ing­ton Post
