Suicide Squad Director Shares Details About Important Deleted Joker Scene

"He was going to take Harley home and be 'King of Gotham.'"

Suicide Squad director David Ayer has shared some details about one important deleted scene that sheds light on a key scene involving The Joker.

In the film, which follows the titular squad of villains trying to stop Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) from destroying the world, the Joker drops Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) from a helicopter, which then crashes. The Joker (Jared Leto) then disappears for the rest of the movie until right at the end, where he frees Harley from prison. It's never made clear what exactly happened to the Clown Prince of Crime after that crash scene in the released cut of the film.

Ayer has now revealed on Twitter that, after the helicopter crash, Joker would have made a deal with Enchantress to "take Harley home and be ‘King of Gotham'” at the end of the movie. However, Harley had other plans and refused his offer.

"After Joker dropped HQ from the help and crashed, Enchantress made a deal with him," Ayer tweeted. "He was going to take Harley home and be 'King of Gotham' Harley stood up to him and refused to betray her new friends. The Squad turned on him and he escaped. That was her arc. Growth and empowerment."

Last year, Leto denied reports he was disappointed with how Suicide Squad turned out that he didn't want to be involved in future DCEU films, and instead expressed that he was proud to be part of it.

As for the sequel, rumors about Suicide Squad 2 suggest either Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam or Ben Affleck's Batman will appear in the film.
