Suicide Squad sucks. Accept it and move on. Some of the criticism stems from the fact that the theatrical release of the movie made Jared Leto‘s The Joker pretty much an unnecessary character and a needed lie for the trailer. He’s also been getting shit for going method, but during a Q&A session at “Camp Mars“, Leto
“He was very honest about the film this weekend; his disappointment in what he’s learned of the theatrical cut (he’s still not seen the film); feeling sort of tricked into being apart of something that had been pitched to him very differently; thinking it would’ve been more artistic than what it became; feeling overwhelmed by the hate regarding the look and choices… In one breath he would say he too “needs more joker”, but in the next it seems very unclear if he wants any part of the process going forward. However it was clear he feels very fragile still about everything that had happened just two weeks before – and had spent a lot of hours trying to come to terms with his work and compartmentalize just so he can move forward onto the next film project.”
Now, if you’ve seen Suicide Squad, then you know Jared Leto probably didn’t agree to do a two hour music video with forcibly inserted jokes about people who survive helicopter crashes for no reason. What he said this weekend is pretty much consistent with what he’s been saying all along, and if you feel like Googling, there’s a long list of descriptions of scenes available online that were cut from the movie. Which sucks. Because the movie could have been great. Trump will fix when elected.
