As we heard before, Jared Leto has had some creative decisions into transforming himself into the joker for Suicide Squad, which included himself acting like the shower on set all the time, but now in a recent interview with Producer Charles Roven, he talks more about Leto’s method on set:
“Look, you know, it was different, it was fun,” he acknowledges. “The group first wasn’t sure because the AD’s had to call him ‘Mr. J’ to get him to come to the set [laughs]. And he did in many ways isolate himself from the rest of the group, but that’s really what his character was, the purpose of his character in many ways, other than when he was with Harley or trying to get Harley. It was very entertaining, it was fuel for a lot of good sport and a lot of laughs, and his isolation bonded the squad, and we wanted the squad bonded.”
As we’ve seen the trailer looks pretty dark and grim and for a film that is filled with villains, many thought that the film would be Rated-R, according to Roven the film would be PG-13.
“The intention of the film is definitely to be PG-13… We really want to make these films tonally consistent so that, as I said because this is a shared universe, at least our current thinking—and again, we’re not dealing in absolutes because while this is business it’s also a creative endeavor, so you want to leave yourself open to changing your mind, doing something different, being inspired, that’s the whole process of filmmaking is you have to allow for inspiration as well as having a road map for what you’re gonna do. So our plan right now is to make all these films PG-13. In some cases, you know, right there on the edge of PG-13, but still PG-13.”
