Jared Leto Says 'Suicide Squad' Cuts Could Make Joker Movie

Days after Jared Leto said many of the Joker's scenes were cut from "Suicide Squad," he's giving fans more speculation fodder.

During an interview with BBC Radio 1, Leto told Edith Bowman "there's probably enough footage" for the Joker to have a movie of his own.

"I think that I brought so much to the table in every scene, it was probably more about filtering all of the insanity, because I wanted to give a lot of options, and I think there's probably enough footage in this film for a Joker movie," said Leto.

The Joker appeared in less than 15 minutes of the film, much of his role being to fill out Harley Quinn's backstory.

Leto also said in the interview he told director David Ayer during production that "Suicide Squad" should be rated R.

"I always wished this film were rated R," he said. "It felt like, if a film was ever going to be rated R, it should be the one about the villains."

Leto wasn't the only one to question "Suicide Squad's" PG-13 rating. Last week, filmmaker Mike Birbiglia tweeted, "Suicide Squad has machine gun killings and bombings and got a PG-13 rating. @DontThinkMovie gets an R because adults smoke pot. Confusing?"
