Taking to Twitter, director Ayer has revealed his original plans for Leto’s Joker, stating that: “After Joker dropped [Harley] from the [helicopter] and crashed, Enchantress made a deal with him. He was going to take Harley home and

David Ayer Says Joker Should Have Been The Main Villain In Suicide Squad

There’s something quite refreshing about a filmmaker being very open and honest about the work they deliver – and also something very unusual.

While interacting with a fan on Twitter, David Ayer conceded that he regrets not making The Joker – played by Jared Leto – the main villain of the piece.

Yeah it was a big fun silly movie. It could have been a bigger
