I don’t think any of us are naïve to the pressure he’s under.” Referring to that fact that Leto is under a lot of scrutiny not only because Joker is such an iconic character, but has already had two different but very memorable portrayals by two top notch actors. “It’s not something I’ve talked about with him, but I’ve seen him working and it’s cool, man.”

Courtney also discussed the difficult shooting schedule of Suicide Squad:

"We’ve been doing nights for the best part of a couple months. It’s been wild, dude. [We’ve got] ‘til the end of August, so we’ve got a while."

Seeing as it’s only June, that sounds like there is still plenty of Suicide Squad we haven’t seen. Check out the interview with Jai Courtney below and Suicide Squad opens in theaters August 5th, 2016:
