Suicide Squad Extended Cut And Special Features Revealed
The contents of the extended cut of Suicide Squad as well as Blu-ray special features have been revealed.
Although it’s been known for some time that Suicide Squad would be getting an extended cut, the exact run-time of the cut was confirmed just today. Commenters on reddit’s DC Cinematic page shared a photo of the packaging for the film’s upcoming Blu-ray release, showing details about the release on the product’s back. According to the image, the extended cut runs 11 minutes longer than the theatrical version for a total of 134 minutes:
The scan also reveals a list of the special features, which include “Task Force X,” covering the comics history of DCs dysfunctional super-team; “Squad Strength and Skills,” focusing on the how the cast “whip[ped] themselves into shape”; a short covering the Joker and Harley as “The ‘It’ Couple of the Underworld”; a gag reel; and “Chasing the Real,” a behind-the-scenes mini featurette in which writer/director David Ayer “reveals [his] techniques for creating an authentic surreal world.”
Previously, actor Jared Leto claimed “there’s probably enough footage in this film for a Joker movie,” which sounds like a lot more than the 11 minutes of extra scenes in this “extended” edition. However, it’s also possible we might see some more of this additional Joker material in the various extras.
