In a recent interview with Suicide Squad director David Ayer, the director finally squashed those persistent and ridiculous rumors of Jared Leto's The Joker In Suicide Squad being Jason Todd a former Robin to Ben Affleck's Batman, saying: “Jason Todd being the Joker, It ain’t the case, he’s not.”
In the video below courtesy of Comicbookmovie, Ayer emphatically shoots down the rumor at the 03:25 mark. Check it out below and sound off in the comments with your thoughts.
Here's is the official synopsis:
"It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?"
Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Karen Fukuhara, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne.
Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 5, 2016.
