Jared Leto Feels Tricked by 'Suicide Squad' (Join the Club), Disappointed by How Much Joker Was in the Film

After all that crazypreparation” Jared Leto went through to play The Joker, it turns out the joke… was on him! Hahahaha! (But in all seriousness I do hope he’ll use this moment to reflect on his behavior, and work to change.)

In a Q&A session for a 30 Seconds to Mars event (by way of Batman News), Leto said Suicide Squad was pitched to him differently, in a way that made him think the film would be, you know, a more high-minded production, one befitting an actor of his status and aesthetics. And coming off the Christopher Nolan Batman films, that isn’t an unrealistic pitch. The Dark Knight is truly a work of art.

And I am on poor Jared Leto’s side. The Academy Award-winning actor thought he was going to make a piece of thoughtful commentary on society writ-large, and ended up in a boring, sexist summer sludgebuster (that’s what I’m going to start calling blockbusters that are so slow they feel like you’re moving through sludge: “sludgebusters”). Imagine Jared Leto sitting down to watch the objectively obnoxious Batman V. Superman — a film full of grim growling and aggressive angst — and thinking “This is the movie universe I’m stuck in?” And since he’d presumably already wrapped shooting, there was nothing he could do — sweet innocent artist Jared Leto, who plays guitar like this…
