Suicide Squad Extended Cut: Worth It?
The DC Extended Universe remains a controversial corner of superhero fandom. Instead, Warner Bros was met, again, with backlash from detractors and fans alike, ushering in the DCEU's biggest critical pounding thus far. However, like Batman V Superman before it, criticisms of the film's story were the loudest and most abundant. The added and extended scenes didn't change the film's tone or how viewers might feel about Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, but they did fill plot holes, round out characters arcs, and inject payoffs that, in the original release, were cut-short in favor of a tighter "casual moviegoer-friendly" version. That is to say: for those who were willing to revisit Batman V Superman , and invest an extra 30 minutes, the end result was a much more coherent film. What the Extended Cut offers is lengthier versions of existing scenes as well as a few "deleted" sequences that have been added back in.

As much as the decision irritated some, the official stance at release was that the theatrical cut was the final word. Whether or not these added scenes and character moments make for a better film is a separate issue entirely read our take on that question HERE , but for those curious to see how much has been changed, or for fans eager to see what they have to look forward to, allow us to help. The most significant change to the movie brought with the Extended Cut is the relationship between Joker and Harley Quinn, and it begins with their very first scenes. The introduction is the same, with Amanda Waller detailing Dr. Harleen Quinzel's work with the criminal at Arkham Asylum - but the Joker's actions following his breakout now make a bit more sense. In the theatrical cut, it's easy to see that Joker's men strapping Harley to a table, and letting him shock her with electrodes is some sort of simple revenge, or twisted act of violence.
