SUICIDE SQUAD: Charles Roven Reveals Surprising Details About 'The Joker'; Confirms PG-13

Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad producer Charles Roven has revealed some surprising new details about the lengths Jared Leto went to to get into characters as The Joker, while also confirming that the very dark and violent looking movie will indeed be rated PG-13...

We've been hearing a lot about Jared Leto's decision to go method for The Joker in Suicide Squad, but in a recent interview with Collider, producer Charles Roven talked more about how the Oscar winner (Dallas Buyers Club) behaved on set in order to become The Clown Prince of Crime. "Look, you know, it was different, it was fun," he acknowledges. "The group first wasn’t sure because the AD’s had to call him ‘Mr. J’ to get him to come to the set [laughs]. And he did in many ways isolate himself from the rest of the group, but that’s really what his character was, the purpose of his character in many ways, other than when he was with Harley or trying to get Harley. It was very entertaining, it was fuel for a lot of good sport and a lot of laughs, and his isolation bonded the squad, and we wanted the squad bonded." The special features for this movie should be very interesting indeed, and it sounds like a fascinating way to have approached the character. 

As for the movie's rating, you can forget it following Deadpool by taking aim at an R. Despite the impression given off by pretty much everything we've seen from Suicide Squad, it's going to a PG-13 in order to crack into that all important summer blockbuster audience for box office success. "The intention of the film is definitely to be PG-13… We really want to make these films tonally consistent so that, as I said because this is a shared universe, at least our current thinking—and again, we’re not dealing in absolutes because while this is business it’s also a creative endeavor, so you want to leave yourself open to changing your mind, doing something different, being inspired, that’s the whole process of filmmaking is you have to allow for inspiration as well as having a road map for what you’re gonna do. So our plan right now is to make all these films PG-13. In some cases, you know, right there on the edge of PG-13, but still PG-13."
