During a recent conversation with NME, Jared Leto responded to the film’s negative reviews and reception. According to Leto, the response to the movie “doesn’t have very much to do with” him.
On the mixed response: “I’ve heard that there’s been a very mixed response. It’s easy to hear that, but I haven’t seen the film and I’m in the film so little that that really has not very much to do with me and what I’m doing now and talking and sharing the film.”
On footage of Joker that was cut from the film: “We shot so much footage, there are so many scenes that are not in the film. I haven’t seen the movie yet so I don’t know exactly what’s been cut out or not, but I do understand it’s a bit of an introduction to the Joker, it’s a bit more of a supporting part than maybe it could have been if they had used everything. But they have a method to their madness.”
Suicide Squad is in theaters now.
