Suicide Squad: the director admits he had dared too much with the Joker
Despite good takings, Suicide Squad is being heavily criticized by experts and fans for how he (re)brought to the screen some of the big villains of DC; over all, has been harshly criticised the new version of the Joker, played by Jared Leto.
Responding on Twitter to a fan, the film's director David Ayer has admitted to having dared too much in the characterization of the character, especially in regards to the tattoos, thus making the “step longer than the leg”.

Previously, the director had justified the presence of tattoos, explaining how these represent the history of the villain, noting the several Easter Egg. The spectators, however, with some exceptions, seem not to have much liked this version from “the gang” and “proletarian” character. Who knows that the interpretation of Joaquin Phoenix in stand-alone elseworld foods with even more of this discomfort for the Joker, Leto, or if, perhaps, bring the fans to listen with a new trial.
In the meantime, came the first details about the plot of the spin-off dedicated to the Clown of Crime and Harley Quinn, played of course by Margot Robbie.
“It's great, it all begins with Harley, who kidnaps Dr. Phil, interpreted by the doctor himself in the film, because he has relationship issues with his Joker,” explain the two screenwriters Glenn Ficarra and John Requa “we had so much fun writing a script, the genre, the most fun of our careers. We have mixed the tone of the Santa Bastard and This Is Us, a film of a couple on people that are completely unbalanced. It was really fun...we do not know, however, at the moment, in which position both the film and in the ranking of priority for Warner Bros. and DC”.
