With the earlier news of the drama surrounding Suicide Squad that includes mention of multiple edits, now it's learned WB cut out a lot of Jared Leto Joker scenes from the movie.

"Oh, there are a lot of scenes," Leto responded when asked if there was a scene that didn't make it into the final cut. "Yeah, there are a lot of scenes that didn’t make it to the final film. Hopefully they'll see the light of day. Who knows," Leto told Telestar.

Leto also confirmed he'll be back as The Joker in more movies.

"I learned a lot about the Joker the more that I worked on the character, and I think that's probably going to continue to happen," Leto said.

Leto also offered playing The Joker "is the most fun I've ever had with a character" and that "it was an honor to get asked to play the part."

Update: One of the Joker cut scenes has become known, and it's a pretty big scene.

"Suicide Squad" has an August 5, 2016 release date directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.


It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, 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?
