Though Suicide Squad 2 is within the works, at this level many followers are conscious that the unique Suicide Squad film had some issues, and one in all its largest points was the misuse of Jared Leto’s Joker. Trying again on the challenge, many have questioned if Joker ought to’ve been the central unhealthy man of the film, thus forgoing Enchantress (Cara Delevegine) completely. It is a view shared by lots of the movie’s followers, and now even director David Ayer himself has acknowledged his use of the Joker could not have been the very best. Whereas chatting with followers on-line about the potential of honing in on Joker’s Suicide Squad position in a extra substantial means, David Ayer tweeted:
We’ve got spoken at size about this explicit Suicide Squad difficulty right here at CinemaBlend. The DC flick felt slowed down by the truth that it did not fairly know what it needed to do with The Joker, which arguably neutered him as a personality. Did he characteristic too prominently within the movie or not sufficient? That debate has raged for the final yr and a half, however now David Ayer’s post appears to have lastly confirmed that, if given a redo, he doubtless would offer The Joker with a extra distinguished villain position.
It is fairly straightforward to see why Joker would’ve made such a great enemy for Job Pressure X to face off towards in Suicide Squad. By its very nature, the titular group is designed extra for covert, clandestine operations than large superhero battles. Nevertheless, the risk posed by Enchantress did not actually slot in with that concept. She was a city-destroying, probably apocalyptic risk with arguably much more damaging powers than Doomsday in Batman v Superman. In my view, she wanted the Justice League to take her down; not the Suicide Squad.
It isn’t too late to beef up Joker’s position as a villain because the DCEU strikes ahead into the longer term. Justice League‘s final end credits scene–and minor spoilers if you have not seen the flick–sets up the Legion of Doom when Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) meets Deathstroke (Joe Manganiello) after his escape from Arkham, and Joker has appeared as a member of the Legion previously. If DC desires to refocus the character and permit him to go full unhealthy man in some unspecified time in the future, then teaming him up with other DC big bads might let him turn into the villain that everyone knows and love.
