While we impatiently await the arrival of the impending Harley Quinn spinoff film co-starring the Birds of Prey, let us not forget that the release of Suicide Squad Extended Edition is upon us. And, in advance of that, comes the expected breadcrumbs that make a valiant effort to satisfy our hunger.
The new cut of David Ayer’s film hits Digital HD tomorrow and Blu-ray on December 13th, and from what we’ve heard, it’ll come packing 11 minutes of new footage. Some of that has been teased out over the past few weeks, and after getting a new clip of the Joker and Harley Quinn earlier today, we now have a new scene of Dr. Quinzel and Killer Croc.
As much as we feel that the latter character certainly didn’t get enough time on screen (he barely even spoke), it’s not hard to see why this particular moment was cut. While a fun little interaction between the two members of Task Force X, one which helps to establish their dynamic a bit more, it doesn’t add a whole lot to the film and is more filler than anything else. Still, the banter between Harley and Croc is amusing and we’re happy to see more footage of them both.
With Suicide Squad having finished its box office run at a more than healthy $745.5 million, it’s clear that the “worst heroes ever” are here for the long run, and that’s quite alright with us. We’ll be the first to admit that Ayer’s film had issues, but there were enough bright spots in it that we’re looking forward not only to this new Extended Cut, but also to seeing how Warner Bros. and DC develop the property further.
Suicide Squad will arrive on Digital HD tomorrow, followed by a physical Blu-ray release next month. Will you be giving the film another chance though? Sound off down below and let us know!
