Suicide Squad was released earlier this month, and many fans are upset at how little The Joker (Jared Leto) was featured in the film.
Turns out, a lot of Joker scenes were filmed, but ended up being cut. Margot Robbie, who played Harley Quinn, explained why in a new interview with Tipsy Talk.
“They probably realized that the emotional through-line of the story had to be the mission that we were on, and explaining the Enchantress’ position and all that kind of stuff. And the [Harley and Joker] backstory stuff, though it’s magic and some of the stuff we shot was insane, they are flashbacks … so there’s a lot, but it just didn’t make sense to confuse the present storyline to incorporate all that,” Margot said during the interview.
Margot wouldn’t rule out a whole separate movie addressing Harley Quinn and The Joker.
“I’m trying to make that happen,” Margot said. “There’s just so much more to do.”
