A disgruntled fan of Suicide Squad is planning to take legal action against Warner Bros for “false advertising” after they deleted scenes from the movie that were included in the trailer.

A Reddit user, who goes by the handle BlackPanter2016, is determined to take legal action against the film studios after scenes of the Joker (portrayed by Jared Leto) were not included in the final cut of the movie, reported Female First.

Taking to the popular social networking site, the furious fan said, “‘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 Warner Bros/DC Comics 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 punches the roof of his car, when Joker drops a bomb with his face all messed up and says, ‘Bye bye!’ None of these scenes were in the movie. (sic)”

The angered enthusiast believes he should be entitled to a refund after he drove 300 miles to London to watch the “specific scenes explicitly advertised in TV ads.”

“I drove 300 miles to London to go watch these specific scenes they had explicitly advertised in their TV ads. I wasted a lot of money paying and travelling to go watch this movie because of these specific scenes they had advertised to me.

“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. (sic),” he wrote.

The fan is set to file his case later this week.
