Suicide Squad writer/director David Ayer has tweeted that he thinks Jared Leto's Joker should have been the primary villain of the 2016 film. Ayer revealed it in a conversation with a fan.
"Believe me. I agonize over this. Yes. Joker should have been main bad guy," tweeted Ayer. "Yeah it was a big fun silly movie. It could have been a bigger success had I done it a little different. But it did great and made an impression."
Ayer is currently working on a Harley Quinn-led spin-off, Gotham City Sirens, while Gavin O'Connor is writing and directing a second Suicide Squad film.
