Jared Leto reveals that he hasn’t seen ‘Suicide Squad’ yet

Despite his high-profile role as The Joker, Leto still hasn't managed to watch himself in the movie

Jared Leto has revealed that he is still yet to see Suicide Squad in its entirety.

The actor and 30 Seconds To Mars frontman is starring as The Joker in the new DC Comics film, which is in cinemas now, alongside the likes of Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Viola Davis.

Speaking to NME shortly before the film’s release, Leto revealed that he still hadn’t managed to watch the finished version of Suicide Squad.

“I haven’t seen the movie yet, so I don’t know what’s been cut and what’s not,” Leto revealed. “But I understand [this Suicide Squad film] is a bit of an introduction to The Joker. It’s more of a supporting part than it could have been, had they used everything – but there’s a method to [the filmmakers’] madness.”

Elsewhere, Suicide Squad director David Ayer told NME that “it’s time for more diversity in film and time to recognise the power of women characters in comics.”

“In this [film], I have Harley Quinn, a female villain [Delevingne’s Enchantress) and Amanda Waller, who is the good guy ostensibly but is really in a lot of ways [also] the alpha-wolf of this insane wolf pack.”

Suicide Squad is in cinemas now. Read the NME verdict here.
