suicide squad

 

The Suicide Squad movie has been one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2016. It’s the third movie in the DCEU. Though poorly reviewed by the critics and Rotten Tomatoes, it’s been very much embraced by the fans. This is my all time favorite comic and I’ll say this, it stayed very true to it. Visually and story wise. Except for one major part.. The Joker and Harley origin story.

Wednesday we found out that Warner Bros had cut quite a bit of David Ayer’s original piece. Just like they had done with Batman v Superman and Zack Snyder. I’m not sure if this is due to it being a controversial topic and they’re worried about a backlash, or really due to the rumors of them wanting to resemble the trailers. Seems to me that can’t be why because in the trailers it looks like joker is abusive to Harley.

The scenes that were cut involved the abuse by the Joker. If you know their story, that’s how their whole relationship has been. He beats her and tries to murder her several times. In the movie, he actually loves her and even saves her in some ways. Some fans say it’s a good thing. Saying things like “How is it a bad thing someone isn’t getting beat?”.  Other fans, such as myself, are simply saying that this isn’t promoting abuse but going by the story of the couple that began with Harley’s first appearance.

Set photos released and leaked over a year ago clearly show her being beat. These were all cut. Now Jared Leto’s performance is being criticized  by many and it due to the twenty plus minutes that were removed from the film. In my opinion, he is the perfect portrayal of the character and it has caused a whole new joker in the DCEU that he didn’t aim for. He’s an amazing method actor and acted on the original script and uncut version Ayer wrote without the Warner Bros edits. I hope this doesn’t affect people’s views on DC and it’s new extended universe. Again, the movie, acting and direction was AMAZING. These edits have changed a whole character story line that may affect two character’s appearances in every movie they appear in upcoming films.

I loved the cartoon feel it added with the dark villainous side the bad guys should portray. Was something different and refreshing. If there’s only one thing a little off, and it has nothing to do with DC, director/writer or story line issues, the critics are just living up to their titles and criticizing.
