Jared Leto was filthy that so many so his scenes got cut from Suicide Squad, but they might be released after all.

Leto played The Joker in the film that was released earlier this year, but he appeared in so few scenes that Rolling Stone described his role as "a glorified walk on".

"There were so many scenes that got cut from the movie, I couldn't even start," the actor said to IGN after the film's release.

"I think that the Joker ... we did a lot of experimentation on the set, we explored a lot. There's so much that we shot that's not in the film.

"If I die anytime soon, it's probably likely that it'll surface somewhere. That's the good news about the death of an actor is all that stuff seems to come out."

But the good news is Leto doesn't have to die ... he just has to wait for Suicide Squad to be released on blu-ray in December.

It'll feature 13 minutes of extra footage, and judging from the trailer for the extended cut, there'll be a number of never before scenes starring The Joker.

Suicide Squad, which also stars Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Jai Courtney, made more than $981US million at the box office worldwide despite being panned by critics.

As for the bad reviews, Leto told NME that they've got nothing to do with him.

"I've heard that there's been a very ... mixed response," he said.

"It's easy to hear that, but I haven't seen the film and I'm in the film so little that that really has not very much to do with me and what I'm doing now and talking and sharing the film."
