Turns out Jared Leto’s Joker performance was ‘ripped out’ of the film
Jared was pretty mistreated during this. No one has seen his performance. It was ripped out of the movie. https://t.co/gSOeyJjtyd

David Ayer’s words will probably bolster the cry for Warner Bros. Pictures to release his cut of Suicide Squad on HBO Max.
Here’s what Ayer revealed about Leto’s performance in Suicide Squad:
Jared was pretty mistreated during this. No one has seen his performance. It was ripped out of the movie.
This is a pretty big claim to make, and I’m sure that people will now be dying to get to see Ayer’s version of the movie.
They’ll want to see what the initial vision for Jared’s Joker was, as opposed to the awful performance we got in the theatrical version of the film.
