OFFICIAL: SUICIDE SQUAD Is Getting An Extended Cut; Check Out The Trailer Here

Like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before it, Suicide Squad is getting an extended cut when it hits Blu-ray later this year. Hit the jump for the teaser and to find out the release date...

In some respects, Suicide Squad was more disappointing than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While the latter suffered because Warner Bros. allowed Zack Snyder to shoot a movie that was just too big and needed to be cut down to the point where it became a mess, the former was butchered in the editing room by execs who were worried that moviegoers wanted it to be less dark and more fun. 

Clearly realising that fans weren't overly happy with the version of Suicide Squad they ended up getting in theaters (which David Ayer has maintained was his final cut), they'll be releasing an extended version on November 15th digitally and December 13th on Blu-ray. It's worth noting that this hasn't been called a "Director's Cut", but neither was the Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman to be fair.

The trailer below doesn't reveal much, but we do see more of Harley Quinn's origin story and some fresh shots of The Joker, so this version of Suicide Squad already promises to be a must-watch.
