The Hollywood Reporter reported that Leto who played Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad thought Warners had strung him along with promises of his own Joker stand-alone film but they went ahead with Phillip’s version with Joaquin Phoenix instead.
During David Ayer’s final cut, Leto’s Joker only got 10 minutes of screen time.
Leto spoke to media about how much footage of his Joker had been cut.
“In his defense, it was never really his movie, but his attempt to ‘invent’ a place for himself in it backfired,” says an insider involved in the situation.
Even then, Leto’s rep says the actor is happy working with Warner Bros, and he is currently shooting John Lee Hancock’s Little Things co-starring with Rami Malek and Denzel Washington.
Leto’s unhappiness over the Phillips project ended the already strained relationship between Leto and CAA.Follow us on Social Media
