Suicide Squad is getting its “Extended Cut” (but not a director’s cut, mind you) on digital HD this November 15th and on Blu-ray this December 13th. To promote the release, Warner Bros. gave the behind the scenes video above to Collider. And what else would it be about than Jared Leto’s edgelord Joker and his much-discussed Method acting? He reportedly stayed in character and gave numerous creepy gifts to the other actors (and to Skrillex). He even said he had so many deleted scenes they could be their own R-rated spin-off, bless his heart.
In the clip above, Leto talks about trying to do his own take on the character to “push the envelope,” while director David Ayer talks about saying goodbye to Leto:
“So during the process of figuring out the Joker and helping Jared create that character, I kinda had to say goodbye to Jared. There was a point when he went away and was replaced slowly and surely by the Joker. It was a fascinating process to watch. There was this really nice guy, a good guy with a lot of depth to him, he’s a very thoughtful person… the Joker is not someone you’d say is a really good guy.”
He’s so edgy, you guys. If you don’t understand how edgy, you soon will.
