The Worse Mistake In Suicide Squad That Everyone Missed



Rockefella Superhero Collection

It’s been nearly a year since David Ayer’s Suicide Squad divided fans (yet made a ton of money at the box office and inspired 2016’s Halloween costumes). While the movie had several moments of WTF, there’s one glaring mistake that nearly everyone missed involving Jared Leto’s Joker.

The Worse Mistake In Suicide Squad That Everyone Missed

You see, the Joker’s gangster look drew the ire of fans. However, his metal grill was something that we could all get behind, particularly after Ayer described the reasoning for it. In an interview promoting the film, Ayer said the following of his creative decision:

“This is sort of my personal thing and maybe less about a larger connection. But Joker killed Robin and Batman basically smashes his teeth out and locks him up in Arkham Asylum.”

Sounds cool and a nice tribute to A Death in the Family, right? At the same time, keep in mind that when we’re introduced to Harley Quinn in the film, her bio says she was an accomplice in Robin’s murder.

Harley Quinn Accomplice to murder of Robin

So, here’s the weird part, when Harley, as Dr Harleen Quinzel, meets the Joker for the first time, he already has the metal grill and is in Arkham Asylum. So, then what? How can she be an accomplice to the murder if the Joker’s teeth have already been knocked out, or is the grill merely an afterthought?

We think that Ayer owes us an explanation about this, because this is one gargantuan plot hole.

I did notice that. Huge oversight

Guest

That doesn’t make it a plot hole if you are asking if it was a creative decision or not.

Guest

The moment you try to ridicule someone or something as being the “worst” but instead deem it the “worse mistake”.

Guest

Good point.

Doesn’t there need to be a plot for plotholes?

I love this comment

There was a plot. Get freaks together to fight other freaks. That’s a plot.

Guest

Waller shooting her coworkers in front of Deadshot was out of character for a fed.

Guest

She helped him in her role as Doctor at Arkham, before becoming Harley. That still makes her an accomplice. No one said the shots we saw of them together was the first time they met or the first time he was locked up.

Guest

Dude the whole movie was a giant plot hole.

Guest

I can’t believe I just wasted 4 minutes of my life reading that. It’s really not that big of a plot hole considering the whole movie was a giant dud

Guest

Amen!

Guest

It took you 4 minutes to read two paragraphs?

Guest

4 minutes?? Did you know the average newspaper is based off of an eighth grade reading level. They like to think that the general public only has the capability of reading at an eighth grade reading level. Just a thought. 4 minutes…

Why did it take you 4 minutes to read that?

Guest

I enjoyed the Batman parts……glad I didn’t pay movie price to see that 2 min

Guest

I’ll stick to my one comment why was magic neccesary in a movie full of street/building level villains.

Guest

But what confuses me about this is if the grill was a nod to A death in the family Harley Quinn wouldn’t have been involved as she technically was not created until the early to mid 90,s and a death in the family was 88-89

Guest

Comics. Movies. Not the same.

Guest

No they are not but don’t make the comment that a particularly aspect stems from a certain story that was published 5-6 years before a certain character was created and call it a plot hole

Guest
Guest

Waaahhhh, wah wah wah wah waahhh, waaaahhhhh waaahhhhh, who cares, the movie was terrible!

Guest

Oh you mean the ENTIRE length of his gargantuan waste of time?

Guest

Well its possibly a hole in letos explaination.

Its entirely possible that Harley used her status as a doctor to help the joker hide robins death.

Guest

The entire movie was a mistake. What were they thinking?

Guest

Nobody gives a shit.

Guest

Im just glad dc did something different then Marvel. Too often marvel seems to innovate more then dc does.

Ive always wondered if dc should emphasise the villans over the heros in their films. Its absolutely something that marvel isnt doing and might be worth a shot

Guest

I’ve been saying this since the day Ayer announced the story of his teeth and Damaged tattoo. This is why Ayer needs to be kept the fuck away from DC movies.

Guest

This^

Guest

Yea it’s called the joker

Guest

Guest

The joker wasn’t Jason. It was tim. Harley fried his brain with electroshock, killing off certain memories (jokers own words) and maybe implanted other memories in there. Don’t forget harley has a history of manipulating the men in her life. Maybe that’s who this joker is. Tim drake. (just a theory. No need for negativity)

Guest

Batman would never leave Tim to rot in Arkham.

Guest

Maybe by that time, Tim had been full gone into the psychosis. And where else would be put him? Blackgate? Once again, it’s a guess. Maybe I’m wrong.

Guest

Yeah, that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Kind of undermines this Joker’s status as Batman’s archenemy if he’s just a pissed-off ex-Robin.

Guest

Dude, in the cartoon, Tim was joker, Jr. In Batman beyond, he was the new joker. Why is it such a stretch to think joker, before his death, put a plan in motion? He is good for those kind of things.

Guest

Also the scars on Joker correlate with the damages on the Robin suit, implying the Joker is that Robin. This Robin was confirmed to not be Jason, and it has Tim’s staff.

Guest

It didn’t work on ‘The Dark Knight Strikes Again’ and it wouldn’t work here. What would it accomplish apart from pointless drama?

Guest

It would work, in fact. They can fuse the canon reason Tim turned to the movie. That’s if they use their heads.

Guest

And maybe Batman found this out and shattered his teeth. (How many good guys are left? How many stayed that way?)

Guest

Hardly a plot hole if you have to dig just to find out about the teeth in first place. The scene should have at least been in the movie or even the scene they are using the picture for (joker post helicopter crash)

Guest

I figured the worst was adding Jared Letto, the joker, or trying to promote the movie based on him trying to get “in character”.

Guest

That is not a gargantuan plot hole. That’s a continuity goof…Idiots.

Guest

I didnt miss anything it was leto

Guest
There’s a lot of things missing from suicide squad that I really wish they put in the movie my problem most of all with Suicide Squad as much as I enjoy the movie there’s one flaw that this movie has and that’s Harley’s origin story wasn’t told right I feel like they should have told it the way it was told in the Animated Series because we all know that Harley and Jokers relationship was never perfect at all her relationship with the Joker was very abusive I hate how they made their relationship look all lovey dovey when it… Read more »
Guest

This relationship was hardly perfect considering how Joker manipulates her and tortures her with electroshock. Then telling her to go away later on.

Guest

I think we saw it the way Harley saw it, in the movie.

Guest

Watch the animated version its 10 times better

Guest

It might not have been for the murder of Robin, but it’s more than likely that it was Batman who knocked Joker’s teeth out- just for some other reason. Maybe for the crippling of Barbara Gordon

Guest

Worst

Guest

The mistake was the entire movie

Guest

Doesn’t matter, I still love the film and think it’s great.

Guest

I think if they would have went with Ayers first version on Suicide squad , people wouldn’t hate or dislike so much

Guest

I have a feeling the jokers scenes were cut Bc of his poor performance
Whats left in the film is cringe worthy
I like the idea of Jared Leto joker there is still hope for a great performance but he needs to tweak the character a bit

Guest

Alyse Marie

Guest

Jarrod Saunders (worse mistake)

Guest

the worstest ever

Guest

Casting leto was the worst mistake….

Guest

I disagree , but I accept you’re opinion

Guest

I disagree as well, he is an amazing actor. Don’t hate on the actor for the writers mistakes.

Guest

I disagree

Guest

So ive heard

Guest

Why was him casted a mistake? If I may ask

Guest

Cuz he sucked! To flamboyant its like he tried way to hard and that laugh which is god awful, sounds like a mixture of popeye and the aliens from mars attacks! Ak ak ak ak ak

Guest

The joker is famboyant, he didn’t sound like popeye or the aliens form , when Mars attacked. I don’t get that

Guest

I honestly cant remember a single line of his dialog either. Completely forgettable performance

Guest

Eccentric maybe, not flamboyant

Guest

Maybe if you would give him a chance instead of judging to quickly, you would like him

Guest

Ive seen the film 3 times and i was one of the dumb asses defending letos casting before the movie was released, i stand by my opinion….

Guest

The people that like leto , or defend him aren’t dumbasses, I stand by mine. And again I accept youres

Guest

Dont get me wrong i like leto as an actor, requiem for a dream is one of my all time favorite movies, but i hated him as the joker

Guest

Well , nobody is making you like him but I really don’t understand the hate or dislike. But people like different things

Guest

That’s a good one

Guest

Leto was the worst casting they could come up with. Might as well have been Jim Carrey, with Leto’s crappy attempt at sounding like him along with the cringey purrs, i thought i was watching Ace Ventura.

Guest

That laugh was the worst! He sounded half retarded with that cackle!

Guest

Yeah exactly. The defenders of Leto’s joker with the argument that it was only a few minutes. I can only imagine the torture of having to watch a full performance. Ive been told that it was a growl……..like ok if you like crap performance that’s good for you.

Guest

Assault on Arkham was a better take on what Suicide Squad didnt even try to do.

Guest

his Joker reminded me of a retarded Tony Montana on crack

Guest

Ahahahaahah oh god that’s too funny.

Guest

Harley was so fkn overrated as well, Slipknot’s murder was pure comedy laughed my ass out, Will Smith be Will Smith-ing as usual, last battle was, oh i don’t even wanna comment on that, bunch of bad asses started a gay bromance in the end, totally missed the point of the Suicide Squad, hot garbage that movie was

Guest

Tony monana with pop eyes cackle

Guest

i tried to defend him before the movie came out when people were shitting on him, after i watched it, i had to avoid people for a month cause i was ashamed of Leto’s Joker aka Ryuk

Guest

Woooow you’re dumb lol.

Guest

Did anyone really expect this to be a good film? I appreciate it for the little things, playing Margot on a loop in her suspension scene.

Guest

I actually think it is a good film

Guest

I like it better than any film in it’s genre atm tbh, despite it’s “flaws”, I can sit through it, I can’t sit through many action films without wanting to claw my eyes out, so they got something right

Guest

It had its moments but I also think it was a good movie

Guest

I didnt. Id say Leto and crappy writers made it suck ass.

Guest

Glad i didnt pay anything to watch it. Watching it for free was even an insult.

Guest

The movie was effing terrible who cares about this little issue when you have a completely botched effort?

Guest

The fact Harley wants a normal life

Guest

It was a bad movie the cartoon on Netflix was 100x better

Guest

…Other than the fact that Leto was in it?
