director David Ayer
has released a never-before-seen look at Jared Leto
as a burnt Joker in a deleted scene from the original cut of the movie. Although Ayer had written Leto's Joker to have a much more prominent role, studio-ordered reshoots led to most of his scenes winding up on the cutting room floor. This means there's still a lot of footage of Leto's performance from Suicide Squad
that hasn't seen the light of day, but now Ayer has given fans another small peak at the original "Ayer Cut."
In an Instagram
story, David Ayer revealed a video of Leto as the Joker, his face burned from a helicopter crash. "You should be ashamed of yourself," the Clown Prince of Crime says. The footage is now circulating on social media with fans renewing their efforts for Warner Bros.
to release the Ayer Cut.
