DCEU fan says that Jared Leto’s Joker is the most electrifying man in DCEU, not Black Adam
However, a fan took a jab at the title of Black Adam as ‘the most electrifying one in the DCEU’ and shared a gif of Jared Leto’s Joker from Suicide Squad. The tweet also included #ReleaseTheAyerCut, which is a reference to the fans’ demands for the release of the director’s cut of the film.
No, because Black Adam doesn’t give a fuck.

Dwayne Johnson’s reply was straightforward and brutal. However, it was likely meant just for laughs, and it doesn’t suggest the actor’s contempt for David Ayer or the film Suicide Squad, even though it did not receive positive reviews from the audiences or the critics.
