I think we can all admit, whatever we might have thought about 2016′s ‘Suicide Squad’, that there just wasn’t enough Joker in the movie. So much so that it’s hard to tell if Jared Leto’s performance of the character is good or not. David Ayer, who directed the movie, recently admitted to this line of thinking as well on Twitter:
“Believe me. I agonize over this. Yes. Joker should have been main bad guy.“
Of course, it’s too late to go back and we’ll never know what might have been. With Warner Bros ordering a solo Joker movie not starring Leto, we may have seen the only on-screen interpretation by the actor.
Believe me. I agonize over this. Yes. Joker should have been main bad guy.
