Over a year ago, when we got the first look at Jared Leto as The Joker, the reaction was…mixed, to say the least. A lot of people weren’t fond of his grill, the body tats, and the tat on his forehead. It’s a bold look, one that some fans still have a lot to say about since Suicide Squad‘s very successful opening weekend at the box office. In none of the film’s many, many flashbacks are the origins of Mr. J’s tattoos or teeth revealed, but writer/director David Ayer says they help tell the character’s story.
Below, you can read what David Ayer had to say about Joker’s teeth, and you can also check out a fan theory about the crown prince of crime and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie).

Suicide Squad contains a good amount of Easter eggs for fans of DC Comics. Some are more noticeable than others, like when writer/director David Ayer stages a nice tip of the hat to artist Alex Ross‘ “Tango with Evil” cover for Batman: Harley Quinn, with Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) wearing her signature costume. There are plenty of more winks and nods in the film, and if you think you missed any of them, then you may want to check out the video below highlighting the many Suicide Squad Easter eggs.

You’ve probably read by now the long and troubled story of Warner Bros.’ meddling with Suicide Squad, which included extensive reshoots and the studio testing an alternate cut of the film which more closely matched the tone of the popular marketing campaign.

Let’s take a look at the rumored list of Suicide Squad deleted scenes, followed up with some quotes from director David Ayer and Joker actor Jared Leto.

If you’ve already seen Suicide Squad this weekend, you know that there are plenty of references to the events of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, not to mention some easter eggs and set-ups for future films in the DC Comics cinematic universe. However, there’s one blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-detail that changes our perspective on a certain event that’s only alluded to in the aforementioned superhero battle.
In Batman v Superman, there’s a key moment where Bruce Wayne takes a moment to glance at the suit of his former sidekick Robin as it’s displayed in a glass case. Spray painted on the suit is, “Ha ha ha! Joke’s on you, Batman!” We’ve all accepted this to mean that The Joker killed Robin, however, a little moment in Suicide Squad indicates that he wasn’t the only one responsible.

Fans of the Joker aren’t going to see a whole lot of the clown prince of crime in David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad. Quite a bit of Jared Leto‘s scenes were cut from the film, and Ayer and the studio may have gone as far as to remove an entire confrontation between him and the Squad. Because of the character’s grotesqueness and Leto’s choices, it’s a performance that may divide audiences. But if you leave the theater as a fan of the actor’s take on the character, and want to see more of it, then Skrillex & Rick Ross have you covered.
Below, watch the pair’s Suicide Squad music video “Purple Lamborghini,” featuring Leto as the Joker.

DC fans and audiences are now only a mere few hours away from seeing Suicide Squad. Very much a co-star in David Ayer‘s supervillain picture is the Joker (Jared Leto), a character that isn’t too involved in the main storyline but is pivotal to Harley Quinn’s (Margot Robbie) journey. Leto is less than 15 minutes of the movie, and according to the actor, the character used to have more screen time, before Ayer and editor John Gilroy reduced his role.
Below, learn more about The Joker deleted scenes.

There’s a lot riding on Suicide Squad, the third entry in Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe. Both Man of Steel and Batman v Superman made a lot of money, but polarized fans. Among the chief complaints? That the DC films were too grim, too gloomy, and not nearly “fun” enough.
Which is where Suicide Squad comes in. With its zippy pop tunes and its neon color scheme, the Suicide Squad marketing campaign has been all about fun. The trailers and posters promised a movie that’d finally bring jokes back to the DC universe, not to mention a welcome shot of comic book weirdness. So does Suicide Squad get the franchise back on track, or send it veering further off the rails? Read our Suicide Squad spoiler-free review after the jump. Read More »

For months now we’ve heard about how tight the cast of Suicide Squad is, and that camaraderie was definitely on display at the film’s New York press conference this weekend. The stars, director David Ayer, and producers Richard Suckle and Charles Roven talked about the pressures of making the film, the lengths they went to in order to research their roles. They also talked about the unusual and welcome diversity of the Suicide Squad line-up, and some of the crazier on-set antics (one of which involves a naked Jai Courtney).
