The "Suicide Squad" Extended Cut is one that was promised not long after the theatrical version-and many had their hopes up that it will deliver. However, the mix of feedback may be something that deserves a little bit of attention, especially for those who are yet to see it.

Some spoilers may be in order for the "Suicide Squad" Extended Cut. It is highly advised that if not yet seen, reading the contents below will be under personal discretion. As the differences from both renditions of the movie will be detailed, fans are urged to take note of such to further understand-especially with only a few minutes to spare.

According to recent news, the "Suicide Squad" Extended Cut was released not too long back and it has already stirred all sorts of reactions all over the Web. Adding a mere 12 minutes of deleted scenes, there are apparently more room for exposure for the likes of Killer Croc, Katana and more importantly, The Joker. As there were people before who saw the scarcity of Jared Leto's Joker acting as a plague to film, some see that the recent addition of his scenes were somewhat beneficial if not completely game-changing.

The "Suicide Squad" Extended Cut also showed a proper build up for Waylon Jones or Killer Croc, starting with the way that he was said to have bitten off a staff member's hand. The same can be said for the way that Harley Quinn was pushed further in terms of connection to Joker, establishing the romance from the get-go. Sadly, there were some downsides to the latter rendition that could have made the extended version worse.

One of the most noticed downsides of the "Suicide Squad" Extended Cut is how the story's pacing became utterly slow, as some reports suggest. Also, some say that apparently, the version did not have much points to interest the fans more than the theatrical version. Lastly, some fans can agree that there are still some parts left out that were seen in the trailers. Overall, the move could be considered helpful, but not fully satisfactory.

The "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" Ultimate Edition was considered by some to be slightly more sensible, whereas some fans can agree that the "Suicide Squad" Extended Cut is not. To sum up the idea, it may just be a collection of omitted scenes that do not imply further relevance to the plot. Is Warner Bros.' move in any way salvaging to the movie?
