Reddit User Wants to Sue Over Lack of Joker Screen Time in Suicide Squad
File this one under "First World Problems", folks.
A reddit user, whose screen name is BlackPanther2016, decided they weren't satisfied with the amount of screen time that the Joker received in the new "suicide Squad" film, and said that he plans on suing over the issue.
"I told the theatre about this unjust act and said ‘I didn't get what I came here to see, can I have my money back?' They laughed at me and kicked me out. So I'm now taking this to court. I want my refund, the trauma of being embarrassed as I was being kicked out and people laughing at me for wanting my refund, and also the £160 of fuel money I used to drive to London from Scotland."
His complaint is as follows - "Suicide Squad trailers showcased several SPECIFIC Joker scenes that I had to pay for the whole movie just so that I can go watch those SPECIFIC SCENES that WB/DC had advertised in their trailers and TV spots. These scenes are: When Joker banged his head on his car window, when Joker says, ‘let me show you my toys', when Joker punchs [sic] the roof of his car, when Joker drops a bomb with his face all messed up and says, ‘BYE BYE!'. Non [sic] of these scenes were in the movie. I drove 300 miles to London to go watch these specific scenes they had explicitly advertised in their TV ads…and they didn't show them to me."
While one could certainly be upset over this fact, it's also certainly a frivolous lawsuit to say the least. Warner Bros and DC Comics have not yet commented on the claim.
