Will the Joker’s fate be shown?
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
