– Director Aaron Stewart-Ahn said he read the Blacklist-approved script a couple years ago back when Warner Bros. had been trying to make it for years. On page 2, the Japanese characters stare at the prisoner of war's (Leto's) dick, trying to see if it's bigger than theirs "as they've heard." Whether this scene was cut or not when switched to Netflix is currently unknown.
