Suicide Squad is part of the DC Extended Universe and it was released in 2016. Due to Batman vs Superman getting bad reviews due to having a dark tone Warner Brothers began reshoots for Suicide Squad. This resulted in a number of scenes from the trailers being cut, the final cut of the film is more lighthearted then earlier cuts. Due to getting negative reviews Warner Brothers released a Extended Edition adding 11 minutes into the movie. Some scenes that were in the early test sceanings were cut, some of them were latter added into the Exended Edition.

Test Sceaning DifferencesEdit

These scenes were cut or modified in the theatrical cut.

  • 1) In early cuts, the movie's opening detailed June Moon's posession by Enchantress in real time. Reshoots reshuffled the scene to be later in the movie in flashback form in favour of a new opening centered on Deadshot.
  • 2) Deadshot in the prison cell, watching the rain fall and thinking about his daughter. (This scene was added back into the Extended Edition.)
  • 3) El Diablo observing the flame of a lit match, before putting it out due to his vow to no longer use his powers.
  • 4) El Diablo being escorted to a training center by being placed in a tube that fills with water to quel his flames, and then unceremoniously dropped onto the ground.
  • 5) Early interviews showed Captain Boomerang's racism and sexism, but the movie is light on examples of such behaviour, which have apparently been deleted. Most of them were reportedly directed at Katana, to whom Boomerang is attracted to.
  • 6) Early reports indicated more backstory for Killer Croc revealing that he spent his entire life as a social outcast due to his physical appearance and has convinced himself that he is beautiful in his own way. Croc crossed paths with Batman while working as muscle-for-hire for numerous Gotham's crime bosses, while secretly planning to take over one day. There were also scenes displaying his affinity for making sculptures out of discarded materials.
  • 7) Also deleted was a scene where he becomes sick at the helicopter escort to Midway City, throws up half-digested pieces of goat, and then eats them again, disgusting the nearby Navy Seals. (This scene was added back into the Extended Editon.)
  • 8) Early cuts reportedly included a passing reference to Slipknot being a serial rapist, likely to further paint him as unsympathetic to the audience ahead of his own death.
  • 9) More scenes of Rick Flag and June Moon's romantic relationship, including him reading the files of the Suicide Squad recruits after Waller delivers them to him.
  • 10) Another scene where Flag and Moon are out on a date.
  • 11) Extended scene of Joker interrogating Captain Griggs, including the line, "I can't wait to show you my toys," which was in every trailer, but was removed from the movie.
  • 12) Joker and his men escaping after shooting up a restaurant. Harley, who is already affiliated with the Joker, follows them on a motorcycle and intercepts their car. Joker bangs his head against the glass in frustration.(Part of this scene is in the exteened edition.)
  • 13) Joker and Harley then get into a fight, which ends with Harley pointing a gun at Joker's head. Joker sweet-talks Harley into lowering the gun, charming her, then backhands her across the face. Afterwards he sweet-talks her again and they kiss. (Part of this scene is added back into the extended edition.)
  • 14) Extended Ace Chemicals scene where Harley jumps into the chemicals. More bits of dialogue from Joker.
  • 15) Extended Batmobile chase scene with more interaction between Joker and Harley. One of the examples, presented in all the trailers, is the Joker punching the roof of his car.
  • 16) Harley using her baseball bat as a mock gun to play shoot at invisible foes.
  • 17) Extended scene of Joker breaking into the nanobomb manufacture facility to arrange for Harley's neck-bomb to be disabled.
  • 18) More interactions between Harley and Boomerang. Early cuts apparently included her really disliking him despite growing affectionate to all the other members of the squad.
  • 19) Extended bar scene with Harley taking everyone's orders. Deadshot calls for a shot, Katana wants whiskey, Croc and Boomerang settle for beer, Harley asks Diablo wants and he prefers water which she jokes, "is a good idea." The scene was featured in the trailers, but in the movie it cuts directly to Deadshot's speech about them all almost pulling the mission off. (This scene is added back into the extened edition.)
  • 20) Removed several scenes with the Joker to repaint his relationship with Harley as more loving rather than abusive.
  • 21) Joker and Harley get into an argument after he rescues her in the hijacked helicopter. In early cuts he reportedly pushes her out to kill her, then the helicopter gets shot down. This was apparently reworked into the helicopter getting shot down first and Joker pushing her out to save her.
  • 22) Joker returns during the final battle in the subway station, face half-burnt from the helicopter crash, which apparently leads to a brief altercation with the Squad. He calls for Harley to escape with him but she refuses for once in order to help her friends, and the Joker escapes after throwing a live grenade at the group to cover his own escape."

Extended Edition DifferencesEdit

  • 1)The Joker speaks to Harley when she is on the medical table in Arkham Asylum : "You helped me by erasing my mind what in memories I had! Now, you left me in a black hole of rage and confusion. Am I not the medicine you practice, Dr. Quinzel?."
  • 2)The Joker  also says a few words before Harley gets juiced with electricity: "I wouldn't want you to break those perfect porcelain cap teeth when the juice hits your brain."
  • 3)Killer Croc is more detailed in the Extended Version. The strike force walks around longer and they open the gully cover after a little discussion. Griggs: "Yo, K.C! It's supper. Go ahead, open that up, B. Got something real nice for you today, boy." Colleague "Hey boss, is it true he chewed the dude's hand off?" Griggs points at the hand of another colleague behind him: "Look at that, right there, vulcanized rubber."
  • 4)Close-up of Griggs saying: "Don't make me get you."(16:46-16:48) The colleague reaches earlier for the half pig. Before that, Griggs says: "There you are, are you hungry? You want some food? Go ahead, feed the man. What are you in the mood for tonight? I got a double cheese burger, onion rings, a little coleslaw. Or a giant skinless goat?"
  • 5)When the half pig hits the ground, all the shots lack a few frames. But more important, the last one is much longer: Killer Croc grabs the cadaver, makes a few steps forward and starts eating off-screen.
  • 6)After the meeting, there is a scene with Deadshot in his cell remenbering his daughter. A comment of hers is audible from the off: "I know you do bad things. Don't worry. I still love you."
  • 7)Two shots of the escort to the yard.
  • 8)The flight in the chopper is a little longer: Killer Croc feels nauseated and throws up. Captain Boomerang: "Hey. Is he supposed to be green like that?" Then he actually throws up. Harley: "Oh. Party foul. Not cool."
  • 9)Additional night vision goggles shot plus Harley recrutes Captain Boomerang for her plan. The latter also talks to El Diablo who is a bit sceptical. When Captain Boomerang intends to keep walking up to Killer Croc, El Diablo warns him but Captain Boomerang does not care. Shortly afterwards, Captain Boomerang gets pushed aside by Killer Croc. Harely: "So, I'm thinking if we move together we can kill all of these guys and go our separate ways, yeah?" Captain Boomerang: "Sounds good." Harley: "Spread the word." Captain Boomerang approaches El Diablo: "Psst, hoy. Hoy. We need your help, man. When the time is right, you hit Flag with a fireball, he'll be too busy burning to death to have a go at us with his final doom." El Diablo: "Then what?" Captain Boomerang: "Then we get out of here." El Diablo: "And do what?" Captain Boomerang: "What are you, a bloody socker? Ease with all the questions. Freedom, man. Freedom, you remember that, don't you?" El Diablo: "We're criminals, you know that, right?" Captain Boomerang: "Yeah, it's great. Come on, do the bastard." When he keeps walking at Killer Croc, El Diablo says: "Hey, be careful. He eats people." Captain Boomerang: "Solemn mother superia, what?" El Diablo: "He eats people for reals, homie. He's a cannibal." Harley gets to El Diablo but he rejects her: "No." Captain Boomerang then walks up to Killer Croc and gets pushed aside. Harley wants to know: "What did you say to him?" Captain Boomerang: "Nothing. Just having a laugh. No worries."
  • 10)Deadshot walks forward a little longer. Then he talks to Flag resp. he tries to convince him to get the squad focussed on their common goal. Flag: "Hey, Deadshot, I've been thinking. We don't come together, no one walking out of here alive." Deadshot: "Mm. And?" Flag: "These people respect you, you got influence."
  • 11)Deadshot: "What's your threat right now?" Flag: "You're a man of your word, right? I want my mission. And you want your life and your kid back. You help me keep this motley corporate in line, I'll hook you up." Deadshot: "While there is the puppet master, you ain't got shit to hook me up with." Flag: "I got plenty of my own strings to pull. You just get me to the top of that target building and get my rescuee on that extraction helo..."Deadshot: "And you're going to make sure I get paid?" Flag: "Yeah, you get paid. You get paid and you get your fresh start."
  • 12)Flag is shown longer, and Deadshot asks if he knew who was up there. Deadshot: "Flag, who's up there?" Flag: "It's none of your concern." Deadshot: "Do you know who's up there?" Flag: "Nope." Deadshot: "The president?" Flag: "It's not the president..."Haley is getting worried and the result is a flashback of her confronting The Joker out of jealousy. According to her, she had always done anything he had told her to do. But of course, The Joker is not impressed and during a longer conversation on the street, she shoots an innocent truck driver in the middle of it.Joker: "You..." Harley: "You're not leaving me. You're not leaving me!" Joker: "You, you, you are a pain in the ass. Harley: "I have done everything you said, every test, every trial, every initiation. I have proved I love you, just accept it." Joker: "Gada gada gada ga... I am not someone who is...loved. I'm an idea, state of mind. I excute my will according to my plan and you... Doctor, are not part of my plans." Harley: "Please let me in. I promise... Let me in. I promise I won't hurt you." Joker: "Promise?" Meanwhile, the honking truck driver got out of his truck: "Hey, dickface! Mind screaming at your bitch somewhere else." Harley reaches for the gun in The Joker's jacket and shoots him. Joker: "I was going to say, I wouldn't do that if I were you." She puts the gun right to his head and The Joker says: "Don't hurt me. I'll be your friend. Do it. Do, do, do, do, do it." Harley: "My heart scares you and a gun doesn't?"
  • 13)Joker: "DO IT! If you weren't so crazy, I'd think you're insane. Go... away."Subsequently, Harley teases Killer Croc on the street. When he rejects her, she talks to the other members of the squad as well. At the end of the day, Deadhshot sets her straight. Harley (to Killer Croc): "Why do you eat people?" Killer Croc: "Give me power."
  • 14)Harley: "Would you like to eat me?" Killer Croc: "Hell, no." Harley: "Aw, why not?" Killer Croc: "I don't want your crazy." Harley: "Says the guys who lives in a sewer." Killer Croc: "At least I know it's a sewer." Harley: "Oh, I get it. Because it's like, this is a sewer too. Only with nice shops and restaurants, right? You hate mankind much? Let me guess. Mommy didn't take you to Chuck E. Cheese on your 6th birthday. I can recommend a good therapist."
  • 15)El Diablo interferes: "Why?" Harley: "Because I'm bored. I need a victim, a mind to pry apart and spit in." Captain Boomerang: "You just leave it, mate. She's a rabbit hole, don't fall in." Harley goes to Katana: "And here's one now. Japanese, female, mid-twenties, 5 foot 5, good health, athletic and... an only child, with deep seeded father issues. Daddy wanted a son, so she has to hide behind a mask." Katana takes off her mask: "I am not... hiding." Harley: "Yeah, that was gangster." Deadshot takes her aside: "Harley, why don't you stop acting like a drunken stripper." Harley: "You want to tell me what the hell is going on then? Because... I smell a rat." Deadshot: "If they don't blow our heads off, we'll have to fight our way out of this city. I need you to play nice with the other children." Harley: "And quietly return to my cage. Sure. Okay. Hey, that's okay. Sellout, I get it. Like you. I know how the world works, okay? And when it comes to the heart, everyone for themselves, right?"
  • 16)The scene at the bar starts earlier: Killer Croc is a little depresssed and Harley tries to cheer him up resp. takes care of the entire squad by being the waitress. Harley: "What's you having, KC?" Deadshot: "Bloody mary, right?" King Croc: "Rick goes to mind." Harley: "KC, it's the end of the world. Have a drink with us." King Croc raises is eyebrow: "Beer." Captain Boomerang: "There he is. Give the man a B." Harley: "How about you, hot stuff?" El Diablo: "Water." Harley: "That's a good idea, honey. Ninja, you want some sake?" Katana: "Whisky." Deadshot points at his tiny glass: "What am I, twelve?"
  • 17)Another shot at the bar, Captain Boomerang says: "I actually prefer to think of myself as an asset relocation specialist."
  • 18)El Diablo also says: "We weren't picked to succeed, you know that, right? We were all chosen to fail." Deadshot a little earlier: "Yeah, I know that."
  • 19)The conversation is a little shorter in the Theatrical Version plus the order of events is sligtly alternate in order to for it to be a better fit. In the Exteended Edition, Harley also asks: "So, you're going to tell us now what your big deal with Flag was." Deadshot: "Same thing Waller offered me, to kill you. Chance to be a father. Chance to have a life outside the shadows. I trusted Flag."El Diablo puts his foot down: "Flag had you chasing a carrot on a stick, homie, you don't know that?" Harley: "I love this guy." El Diablo: "You played yourself, dawg." Deadshot: "Bitch, I'm having a drink. I'm... breathing fresh air. (For 2 sweet seconds...) In the Theatrical Version, the previous shot of Deadshot is a little longer instead and the cut to calm El Diablo is also different. the close-up of Deadshot starts earlier here, he says "For 2 sweet seconds..."
  • 20)Deadshot, Flag and El Diablo longer in the hallway. They are having a chat. Flag: "You must really love this girl. And I thought love was bullshit, getting serious. Desire, mutual benefit whatever. I mean, I get that, but... actual love? I mean, I rated that with UFOs. A lot of believers, no proof. And then I met June." Deadshot: "Do what you got to do. I got your back."

Trailer DifferencesEdit

  • The Joker wagging his fingure was cut-This moment was intended to be the close of the same electrocution scene, as Joker’s henchmen place the gang boss’ jacket around his shoulder, before Jonny Frost goes to put a bullet in Dr. Quinzel. Joker makes the famous spin, instructing Frost to leave her be. In the finished cut, the scene is simply a quickly-cut blur of surreal scenes focused on Harley and Joker. It was cut out of the movie.
  • Biblical Metahumans-In an early trailer, Amanda Waller doesn’t just rely on threats of a terrorist Superman, or a world war fought with metahumans to push her Task Force X proposal into motion, but The Bible. She singles out two stories: that of Samson, the man strong enough to bring a stone temple down with his bare hands, and “the weapon of mass destruction” known as Goliath. It was cut out of the movie.
  • Harley's Gunshot-When Harley Quinn uses her bat at as a gun was cut from the movie.
  • Harey Winking-When she winked at Deadshot when they were preparing to go the city was cut from the movie.
  • Joker's Toys- After having the gaurd kiss his ring and the joker says "we are going to be freinds" the gaurd then seems to be in pain. When the Joker was a gaurd cornered in his trailer he says "Let me show you my toys." This is impling that the joker was torturing or hurting the gaurd. It was cut out of the movie.
  • Reading the Dossiers-Flag reads who is going to be in Task Force X and he desribes them based on what he sees. "an assassin who shoots people, a crocodile-man who eats people, a guy who burns people, June’s possessed by a witch, and Harley Quinn is… well, just crazy." It was cut.
  • Flag and June-Flag pressing June, which implies a romantic relationship between the two. One of the only scences with any sort of intimacy between June and Rick was cut. 
  • Enchantress Wants to Have Fun-The , as the villain playfully toys with a piece of her costume and urges those present to “do something fun.” The tone of the final scene was serious and chilling. After performing the task demanded of her by Waller, Enchantress idly runs her fingers over a One-Star Admiral, who replies with a terse but humorous “don’t touch me. Please don’t touch me.” It was cut out of the movie.
  • Harley's Impressed-Most of the Suicide Squad isn't shocked or scared the members when they go into the city . Harley Quinn takes in the mission with more wonderment than the rest, beginning with the light show seen in the helicopter taking them into Midway. There’s another example of her wide-eyed enjoyment of this new show seen in the trailer, as the entire cast stands shoulder to shoulder looking at… something. Harley isn’t frightened or worried, but simply impressed, letting out a long “whoaaaaa!” It was cut out of the movie.
  • Kanata's Soultaker-Soultaker is part of Kanata's backstory and in the comics it traps people's souls inside of the sword. Katana drawing her blade through the air over her head, as a wave of skulls appeared alongside the blade, it was cut out of movie.
  • Harley Quinn Hair- When the attack first beings Harleys hair is in the way so she blows it out of the way.
  • Flag Fist Bumb- When the enmies being attacking the team flag fistbumbs one of his soldiers,was cut out of the movie.
  • Enchantress Army- In the trailer they were regular humans but in the movie they became monsters.
  • June putting her hair down- She appars happy with flag this was cut from the movie.
  • Kanata Processed-Her eyies change to a different color witch makes it appear as if she is processed, this was cut from the movie.
  • Freindly Fire-A shot of Killer Croc attacking Kanata was removed from the movie.
  • Joker's- Joker exists with a burnt face and a gernade in his hand, this was not in the movie.
