One of the biggest complaints fans had about Suicide Squad was the suspiciously small role Jared Leto’s Joker had in the film. Now, based on a new trailer released by Warner Bros., that may be rectified in an extended version.
The studio confirmed today that an official extended version of the film would be released this holiday season. Based on the amount of deleted scenes featuring the Joker that Leto and other Suicide Squad actors have boasted about, this may be the best opportunity to see him in action.
In an interview with IGN back in August, Leto joked about the lack of scenes that his character was in. Despite the heavy advertising surrounding the film and the inclusion of the Joker as a major arc, many referred to his role as supporting at best. Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers called it a "glorified walk-on" and when pressed about the decision to cut some of the scenes, Leto got upset.
"Were there any that didn’t get cut>" Leto asked during the IGN interview. "I’m asking you, were there any that didn’t get cut? There were so many scenes that got cut from the movie, I couldn’t even start."
The digital version of Suicide Squad will be available to download on Nov. 15, with the Blu-ray version arriving a month later on Dec. 13.
