Warner Bros Announces 'Suicide Squad' Extended Cut
Despite receiving a polarized reception during its run, "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" redeemed itself with the release of its Ultimate Edition, which explained in detail some of the film's key events and segments. Apparently, Warner Bros Pictures is looking to do a reprisal, as they have announced the inclusion of an "Extended Cut" in the home video release of the DC superhero ensemble "Suicide Squad."
In lieu of the said announcement, the company released a brand new trailer, showcasing some snippets in the cut, including a fleshed out Harley Quinn origin sequence, and new scenes showcasing The Joker.
While performing well at the box office, "Suicide Squad" was critically panned by reviewers and moviegioers, receiving a measly 40% score on Metacritic and a 26% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Most of the criticism had been directed to the film's messy editing, lack of Joker scenes, and inconsistency in terms of the movie's mood palette. It was reported previously that WB execs were worried following "Batman v Superman's" reception that they immediately ordered multiple reshoots for the said film, causing David Ayer to come up with a cut that obliges to the company's wants.
In addition, Jared Leto once mentioned during an interview that a great deal of the scenes he filmed as The Joker got taken off from the final version.
"Suicide Squad" will be released on Digital HD, November 5th, and on Blu-Ray, December 13th.
