Based on the way last year’s Suicide Squad turned out, it’s hard not to see the abundance of studio meddling that undoubtedly took place. In fact, if you compare the trailer premiered at San Diego Comic-Con more than a year before the movie’s release and compare it to the finished film, it’s impossible not to see it.

Additionally, on the heels of the movie’s release, there was buzz surrounding Jared Leto’s Joker. Apparently, there were a whole bunch of scenes that were cut in favor of the main plot. Fans pointed to scenes in the trailer that weren’t in the film, as well as some other pieces of promotion, not the least of which was a Joker dressed up like Batman.

David Ayer took to Twitter to clarify all that.

So it sounds like that Joker figure was just a toy concept, and that the shot of Harley Quinn in a dress wasn’t a part of a full-on scene. Furthermore, Ayer flat-out refutes the claim that there were enough cut Joker scenes to make its own movie, as was previously claimed.

What do you think of this claim from Ayer? Do you believe it? Let us know your thoughts down below!
