THE SUICIDE SQUAD Director James Gunn Reveals Run-Time & Whether There's A Post-Credits Scene
As is often the case when a new superhero movie is on the way, there's been a lot of speculation about the run-time of The Suicide Squad, and director James Gunn has now taken to Twitter to confirm...
For whatever reason, a movie's run-time has become a frequently debated topic of late (maybe people want schedule bathroom breaks?), and The Suicide Squad director James Gunn has decided not to leave us in suspense any longer by taking to Twitter to officially reveal that his DC Comics "requel" will take up 2 hours and 12 minutes of your precious time.
Not exactly butt-numbing, but still long enough to test the patience (and attention spans) of those who feel no "superhero" movie should ever exceed the 2-hour mark.
More interestingly, Gunn also revealed that The Suicide Squad will indeed feature a post-credits scene, though he didn't give any indication of what it might entail.
"Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Bell Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out — even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today's do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin, and everyone's favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese."
"Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave...and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them."
We recently found out that the movie was officially rated R for "strong violence and gore, language throughout, some sexual references, drug use and brief graphic nudity."
The Suicide Squad is set to premiere on HBO Max and in theaters on August 6.
