Now, while we already knew that the soon-to-be-released #ExtendedCut of Warner Bros' #SuicideSquad will feature a whole lot of shiny new content, we've been in the dark up 'til now as to just how much content we'll actually get to see. After all, the number most commonly thrown around — 13 minutes — seemed fairly small in the face of what are apparently vast numbers of deleted scenes featuring #TheJoker. With that in mind, it's hardly surprising that many were hopeful that Warner Bros.' initial suggestion of 13 minutes of new footage was in fact somewhat inaccurate, and that we would, in fact, see even more.
Well, as it turns out, the initial suggestion of 13 additional minutes was a little off after all — just not in the way many were hoping. Y'see...
It Seems The Suicide Squad Extended Cut Will Actually Be Shorter Than We Thought
Specifically, #WarnerBros. has recently revealed that the extended cut will have a runtime of roughly 134 minutes, making it only 11 minutes longer than the original theatrical release. Which, though not exactly catastrophic, is sure to be something of a disappointment to those fans rooting for further antics from the Squad (as well as those hoping to see the extended edition solve their issues with the original).
Of course, it's also entirely possible that the movie will still feature 13 minutes of new footage, but that two minutes of that content will necessarily replace scenes that appeared in the original. After all, any sub-plots that may have been excised from the finished product would likely have been attached to the main plot at one point, leaving the lingering possibility that alternate versions will have been used in the theatrical release. If so, then, it's entirely possible that the previously indicated additional 13 minutes of content could still be accurate, if a little misleading.
Either that, or #JaredLeto just broke into the Warner Bros. lot and re-edited the whole thing, before torching all remaining physical copies and data servers on his way out. If the extended cut turns out to just be a Joker solo movie, then you know who to blame/thank. Either way, it'll be available for digital download on November 15, and on Blu-ray December 13.
