SUICIDE SQUAD Director David Ayer Shares New Look At A Deleted Scene Featuring Jared Leto's Joker

The recent Justice League "Snyder Cut" news has prompted David Ayer to revisit Suicide Squad, and the director has now shared a new shot from that much-discussed deleted scene involving Jared Leto's Joker.

With Warner Bros. finally announcing that the "Snyder Cut" of Justice League will premiere on HBO Max next year, many fans have turned their attention to Suicide Squad, and are urging the studio to #ReleaseTheAyerCut.

David Ayer has already made it clear that his original version of the movie ever seeing the light of day is highly unlikely, but the director has been happy to revisit Task Force X's cinematic debut over Twitter, sharing some new details and tidbits with fans in the process.

Yesterday, Ayer debuted a new black-and-white shot of Jared Leto as The Joker.

As previously reported, The Clown Prince of Crime originally had a far more substantial role in the film, and this image is taken from a deleted sequence which would have taken place just before the final battle. Joker was going to reappear after surviving the helicopter crash (hence his burned face), before striking a deal with Enchantress to save Harley Quinn's life. Apparently, HQ would have rejected Joker's offer and stood by her new friends.

Ayer captioned the image "Dream," which obviously suggests that he would very much like the opportunity to show fans his original cut of the movie. Who knows, if Zack Snyder's Justice League is a massive success for HBO Max, the studio might be persuaded to allow the filmmaker to do just that.
