Suicide Squad Director Says Jared Leto's Performance was 'Ripped Out of the Movie'

Zack Snyder's Suicide Squad hasn't even come out yet, but DC fans had jumped on the momentum to demand the release of David Ayer's cut of Suicide Squad, and Ayer himself is very vocal about it as well. One of the things that cut boasts is the "real" performance of Jared Leto's Joker, and Ayer has decided to speak out more about it.

Replying to a post by ReleaseTheAyerCut on Twitter, Ayer talks about how Leto was basically mistreated when it came to his performance of the film. He posts:

It's worth noting that the post of the Ayer Cut people was all about Leto liking a post from the page, so we know that Leto himself is for the release of Ayer's version of the film as well. After being one of the most reviled elements about the film, it would make sense that Leto would try and get his version of the Joker "redeemed" as well.

We don't know exactly what to expect from Ayer's version of Suicide Squad, but we do have some bits and pieces scattered online about the film. When it comes to Joker, it was always said that his relationship with Harley is portrayed as toxic, and he was also said to have a final round with the Squad during the climactic battle with Enchantress. This is also just my guess, but I think Leto's Joker would have fit right in the movie if it was more dark and serious and not as "colorful" as it came out to be.

No official news has been said about the Ayer Cut, but it's possible WB is waiting on the reception of Zack Snyder's Justice League before they make their move.
