Literally minutes after I wrote about a Suicide Squad: Special Edition DVD showing up on Best Buy, Warner Bros. officially announced an unrated Suicide Squad: Extended Cut Blu-ray and Digital HD release! You can pre-order it now.
The Digital HD version will be available on November 15th, and the Blu-ray will be out on December 13th. Suicide Squad: Extended Cut will include 13 minutes of extra footage that was not shown in theaters.
As you can see in the trailer above, it’ll include those deleted Jared Leto Joker scenes we’ve been craving, and will likely focus more on his backstory with Harley Quinn.
