Bossier City’s Jared Leto Expresses Grievances Over Suicide Squad, Feels ‘Tricked’
It doesn't sound like Jared Leto is happy at all with the final Suicide Squad product.
In Shreveport-Bossier City, we are all die hard fans of Jared Leto. He is such a success story from his music to his acting career. He can do no wrong in our opinion. So to hear that he is less than happy over the outcome of Suicide Squad, we already find ourselves reaching for our torches and pitchforks.
We'll follow you into battle, Jared!
What started off as a box office smash in its opening week, quickly became a flop in its second. Many left theaters feeling that they didn't get what was promised, which was Jared Leto as the Joker. At the beginning, his character was the only face of the film. Fans saw very little of Jared.
And Jared noticed.
According to CBS News, while holding his second annual Camp Mars in Malibu, California, Jared spoke candidly to his fans during a Q&A session., He said he felt "tricked" into playing the Joker. There's a "joke's on you" line we could throw out here, but we'll pass.
One fan said Jared felt the role had been pitched to him very differently. That fan also said that Jared has yet to see the theatrical cut of the movie so I guess we have to take this with a grain of salt. Not to mention this is second-hand information. Another fan said that Leto discussed his contract with Warner Bros. stating that he could not participate in one of his favorite activities, rock climbing, while filming.
