With all the claptrap surrounding David Ayer's missteps with Suicide Squad and the revelations that most of Jared Leto's best Joker scenes were snipped and left on the figurative cutting-room floor, it's easy to overlook the solid work the Academy Award-winning actor did to consume himself with the essence of the Clown Prince of Crime. With Suicide Squad's Blu-ray release just around the corner, our friends at Collider have provided us with this exclusive bonus clip from the rowdy comic-book movie's home video release, showing the extraordinary Method measures Leto took in entangling his own twisted psyche with that of the insane supervillain's.
Have a peek into the maniacal mind of Leto's Joker and tell me if you prefer his iteration (as I do!), better than the late Heath Ledger's lip-licking lunatic in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight. Then watch Harley Quinn go all psycho on the Joker in the second deleted scene clip below.
You'll be able to fully grasp Leto's jarring Joker when Suicide Squad's Extended Cut strikes Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on Dec. 13.
