Was Jared Tricked?

Regardless of whether you think the movie is any good or not, the careers of some stars are benefiting more than others following the release of Suicide Squad.

While Margot Robbie, it would seem, couldn't be any happier, Jared Leto doesn't feel the same way...

It Had Been Pitched To Him Very Differently

According to a fan who wrote a now-deleted Tumblr post, Leto told of his thoughts on the film at a recent fan event for his band, 30 Seconds To Mars;

“He was very honest about the film this weekend; his disappointment in what he’s learned of the theatrical cut; feeling sort of tricked into being a part of something that had been pitched to him very differently; thinking it would’ve been more artistic than what it became," the fan wrote, according to news.com.au.

The fan event was known as "Camp Mars" and during the event, fans were invited to ask questions, one of which concerned whether or not Wrner Bros had a clause in his contract which prevents him from taking part in supposed dangerous activities.

Leto is knonw to be an avid rock-climber. The singer and actor's response was straight-up;

“Yes, and my answer is: Fuck ‘em”.

But the dangerous activities clause isn't the only thing he appears to be angry with. In fact, it is probably just a by-product of his original gripe with how much of the filming involving him was cut.

He's been openly critical of how his role turned out in a handful of public interviews.

“There were so many scenes that got cut from the movie, I couldn’t even start,” he said in one of those interviews with IGN.

It's not just him being sore about having scenes cut though. Rolling Stone mentioned that there was so little of his Joker that his part was basically reduced to a "glorified walk on”.

“I think that the Joker … we did a lot of experimentation on the set, we explored a lot. There’s so much that we shot that’s not in the film," Leto continued during the IGN chat.

“If I die anytime soon, it’s probably likely that it’ll surface somewhere. That’s the good news about the death of an actor is all that stuff seems to come out.”

Morbid as Hell. But fair...
