Apparently, there were a LOT of scenes that were cut and Jared is not very happy about it.
IGN took the opportunity to ask about the specifics of those missing Joker scenes, and Mr. Leto’s response seemed to display a degree of impatience. “Were there any that didn’t get cut?” he said to IGN. “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. I think that the Joker… we did a lot of experimentation on the set, we explored a lot. There’s so much that we shot that’s not in the film.”
“If I die anytime soon, it’s probably likely that it’ll surface somewhere,” he added. “That’s the good news about the death of an actor is all that stuff seems to come out.”
Although I liked his version of the Joker, I did feel it kind of distracted from the main plot, which was meager at best. More Squad, less diversions might have helped. But I am looking forward to seeing more of him and much, much more of Harley Quinn.
