We’ve known for a while now that director David Ayer shot more footage for “Suicide Squad” than made it into the film’s theatrical release. Now, despite the director’s earlier assertion that “there’s no sort of parallel universe version of the movie, the released movie is my cut,” the film’s Extended Cut just arrived on home video, clocking in at 11 minutes longer than the version audiences saw in theaters.
Now that the Extended Cut is finally available, audiences will get to see for themselves exactly what those 11 minutes contain, and it seems much of the new material is in the form of jokes and other humorous interactions that emphasize, highlight or repeat character beats that appear elsewhere in the movie.
Among the top moments added back into the mix there is a cameo from Ayer himself as prison guard “C10,” slinging a dead goat down for Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) to eat in a significantly extended feeding scene.
There is more Harley (Margot Robbie,) both as a villainess, diagnosing/teasing Killer Croc over his mommy issues, and in her previous identity as Doctor Harleen Quinzel, where she demonstrates the depth and craziness of her feelings for the Joker (Jared Leto,) going so far as to hold a gun to his head.
But possibly the most significant additions come in the form of the banter between the various villains in the bar scene before the final assault – including Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) insisting he is more of an “asset relocation specialist” than a thief and the fiery Diablo (Jay Hernandez) wanting a simple glass of water.
The “Suicide Squad: Extended Cut” is available now on Blur-ray, DVD and digital download.
