Jared Leto is mad at Warner Bros. Studios for cutting his Joker scenes in Suicide Squad.
Speaking to fans at Camp Mars, a retreat for supporters of his band 30 Seconds to Mars, the actor reportedly expressed his frustration over the DC Comics movie. He claims that he was tricked into doing a film that was pitched quite differently to him by the studio. An attendee of the camp posted Leto’s thoughts from the Q&A.
“He was very honest about the film this weekend,” read the post which has since been deleted (via Batman News). “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.”
Then, when asked whether Warner Bros. had contracted him not to rock-climb during the production of the film, his response was simple: “Yes, and my answer is, f–k em.”
Whether Leto will continue to play the Joker is unknown, but it wouldn’t surprise anyone if he tries to get out of his contract — especially after being so open about his disappointment.
