How did I get these tattoos, by the way?
There were several deleted sequences from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad that featured Jared Leto as the Joker. Recently, a picture from one of these scenes surfaced on Instagram, offering us a brand-new perspective on the Clown Prince of Crime.
Suicide Squad, as directed by David Ayer, has reportedly never been more well-liked. At the time of its debut, the movie received harsh criticism for everything from its plot and characters to Ayer’s direction. A large portion of this criticism was attributed to intervention from Waner Bros. studio executives who wanted the movie to be funnier to fit the tone of Marvel films like Guardians of the Galaxy. As a result, many scenes—including a significant portion of Leto’s Joker development—were completely removed from the movie. Below is a brand-new look at one of these scenes.
Many fans are hopeful that Ayer’s version of Suicide Squad will eventually be released after the publication of Zack Snyder’s Justice League cut. Ayer recently teased the potential of this happening by noting that he has spoken to James Gunn, the co-chair of DC Studios, and he urged fans to be patient. If Ayer’s vision for the movie ever materializes in the DC universe’s future, only time will tell.
According to James Gunn and Peter Safran, their plan for the DC Universe entails fixed screenplays, leeway, and a common plotline for all cinema, television, animation, and video game ventures. The two clarified that their eight-year plan is not a complete reboot because the DC Universe might bring back components from earlier DC eras.
The four DC Universe films are all expected to be released in theaters in 2023 and are currently in various stages of post-production at Warner Bros. Discovery: Shazam! Fury of the Gods, Blue Beetle, The Flash, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.
