It sounds like Jared Leto is biting the hand that feeds — and with those metal chompers, Warner Bros. should be worried!
At a recent 30 Seconds To Mars fan retreat called Camp Mars, the singer/actor/bad-gift-giver spoke to candidly about his feelings on the response to Suicide Squad.
According to eyewitnesses, the new Joker said he was disappointed with everything he was hearing about the theatrical cut of the movie — though he also admitted to not having seen it yet.

At one point Leto reportedly said he felt sort of "tricked" into signing on for something that ended up a lot different than was pitched to him and thought it would be more artistic than what it became.
The method actor previously told BBC Radio 1 he wished the film had been rated R and that he shot a lot more Joker material than was included in the final cut:
"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."
Obviously some were more upset than Leto himself; one deluded fan even threatened the studio with legal action over the disparity of Joker screen time vs marketing.

Jared isn't going nearly that far, but he isn't exactly defending the studio or the film — as some of his costars have been doing.
In fact, speaking of NOT being on damage control, someone at Camp Mars asked him if he would still do things like go rock climbing and other daredevil stunts despite his WB multi-picture contract.
Do YOU think Jared's mouth will get him in trouble with the studio??
