With the different look of the Jared Leto Joker and the reveal of the Robin suit in Batman Vs. Superman, a fan theory hit the net suggesting Suicide Squad's Joker was actually Jason Todd due to possible similar wounds on the shoulders (see above).


You can watch an interview below with the cast of the Suicide Squad, with director David Ayer asked what's the most ridiculous rumor he's heard?

"That the Joker is Jason Todd. It ain't the case," Ayer responded and pointed into the camera [at the fans]. "He's not."

Ayer also tackles the rumor that said they did Suicide Squad reshoots to add funnier moments, aka "The Deadpool Affect."

"I don't think you can do that," Ayer said. "You know you got a scene and then all of a sudden dudes are cracking jokes back to the old scene. It doesn't work like that. The movie was always funny. The movie was always a lot of fun. The studio just gave me more resources to make it even better."

"Suicide Squad" has an August 5, 2016 release date directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.


It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
