Jared Leto Laments Lost Joker Scenes, Wishes "Suicide Squad" Had Been Rated R

During last week's "Suicide Squad" press tour, actor Jared Leto revealed that more than a few scenes featuring the Joker had been cut from the film. In a more recent interview with BBC Radio 1 host Edith Bowman, the Joker actor got into more detail about exactly how much was cut -- and why he thinks it was cut.

"I think that I brought so much to the table in every scene that it was probably more about filtering all of the insanity, because I wanted to give a lot of options, and I think there's probably enough footage in this film for a Joker movie," said Leto. "If I were to die tomorrow maybe the studio would roll something out."

And that's not the only opinion Leto gave regarding the new DC/WB film. "I always wished this film was rated R, and I had actually said that when we were starting," said Leto. "It felt like if a film was ever going to be rated R it should be the one about the villains."

The possibility of an R-rated "Suicide Squad" sequel isn't out of the question, should the film get a follow-up. Director David Ayer told MTV back in April that an R-rated sequel "would be worth lobbying for."
