Here's a quick recap of what's happened since Suicide Squad came out a few weeks ago: Method actor Jared Leto gives out gifts to help (?) his method acting. Suicide Squad gets bad reviews. Fans are pissed at the bad reviews and that Method Actor Jared Leto is hardly in the film. Method Actor Jared Leto has more screen time as the Joker in a garbage Rick Ross video than in Suicide Squad. Method Actor Jared Leto thinks his cut Suicide Squad scenes deserve their own movie.
But what happened to all those scenes of Method Actor Jared Leto's method acting? According to Leto, they were just TOO good for the movie. Which totally makes sense if you're Method Actor Jared Leto. But Margot Robbie, whose performance as Harley Quinn was one of the few redeeming qualities of Suicide Squad, has a more logical theory.
"There was so much of our backstory… they probably realized that the emotional through-line of the story had to be the mission we were on, and kind of explaining The Enchantress' position and all that kind of stuff, and the backstory stuff—though it's like magic… there's a lot but it just didn't make sense to confuse the present storyline with that."
Yeah, you know, storytelling and what not?
