Suicide Squad’s director, David Ayer has shared a page from his original script of a deleted scene from the movie involving Jared Leto’s Joker.
It’s pretty well-known now that the Suicide Squad movie we got wasn’t the movie David Ayer wanted to make.
He’s now been pretty vocal on social media sharing never-before-seen images from his cut of the movie.
He’s also been sharing script pages from his original version of the movie, and they make for pretty interesting reading.
Ayer recently revealed that many of these scenes had been shot but we were, as he put it, “not permitted to see” them.
The writer/director has now shared the script pages from another one of these deleted scenes from Suicide Squad.
This scene involved Jared Leto’s Joker and Ayer also revealed that they shot the scene.
Check out this deleted Jared Leto Joker scene from Suicide Squad’s original script

This scene involves Joker, Harley Quinn, Enchantress, Rick Flag and an unconscious Amanda Waller.
Jared Leto’s Joker has managed to get his hands on the detonator switch which will blow the Suicide Squad’s heads off.
It’s a pretty interesting scene because Joker’s making the point that they have to work together against Waller.
There’s also the question of whether this is the real Joker or just Enchantress playing with the Suicide Squad.
I would have loved to have seen this scene in the final cut of the movie.
Maybe we might get to see it in the David Ayer final cut of Suicide Squad – if they ever let him do it.
What do you make of this news?
