Apparently, fans weren’t the only ones who were unhappy with Suicide Squad.
Jared Leto, who played The Joker, was reportedly speaking at a recent Q&A when he aired his grievances about the movie, which has been slammed by critics.
According to a Leto fansite, the Academy Award-winner, whose scenes where mostly cut from the film, said he felt “tricked” into participating in the project.
“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 a part 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…”
The 30 Seconds to Mars singer went on to say that Warner Bros. prohibited him from participating in any dangerous activities during filming, including one of his favorite hobbies, rock climbing. In response, Leto reportedly said, “f*** ’em.”
Previously, Leto had said that they shot enough footage during the making of Suicide Squad for a whole Joker movie, but he only ended up in about several minutes of the final product.
