There Is Another Cut Of ‘Suicide Squad’


After Suicide Squad released to generally poor critical reception, one thing many people have been clambering after is some form of directors cut. While Ayer has confirmed that there will be no R-rated cut of the film, and that the version released in cinemas is his version of the movie, there is at least one different cut of the film out there. Speaking to Empire Magazine, Ayer revealed that the cut of the movie released is referred to in house as the ‘dossier’ version.

“There’s a linear version we did where it opens up with June in the cave and tells the story in sequence with the arrests and Batman, and then we go to Belle Reve. Honestly, there may be six or seven different versions of the film. In that version, [test] audiences were left with a lot of questions and a little disoriented as to who to watch and why. So we came up with what we call the ‘dossier’ version which has Amanda presenting the backstories and origins of the various members.”

Would you want to see the linear version of the movie, or an extended edition of the movie with all of those rumoured deleted scenes? Or where you happy with the version of the film released in cinemas? Sound off in the comments below.

It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?

Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Karen Fukuhara, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne, Suicide Squad is in theatres now!

    I want to see the version with more Harley/Joker.

  • These types of conversations really bug me… there are are variations and alternative cuts of literally every movie. Studios testing different cuts, directors having their own version, etc… DC can’t keep releasing crap movies and saying, “Oh, well, you’d really enjoy the ‘real’ cut of the film”. We as fans of DC can only judge the film that was released. Stop making excuses and start making better decisions.

    SO will this be the new Blade Runner? 4 or 5 different versions of the film? GIVE ME AN EXTENDED CUT.

    Just saw the movie today and I’d love to see an extended cut. More Squad!

    I feel the dossier version was the right choice, they made seeing there history and flashbacks so much fun.

      Same, it added a sense of purpose to Waller’s scene, whereas if it were in chronological order, that scene would be boring as it would just be her talking with those fellas. We wouldn’t be flashing back to each character because we already saw them. I’m fine with the theatrical cut

    I really enjoyed the theatrical version and don’t understand the comments about confusion and whatnot
