Proceed with caution, spoilers ahead!
Okay, so, I'd like to confess. I loved 'Suicide Squad' to the core. All the pre-excitement was surely rewarded. All thanks to the trailers, behind-the-scenes, interviews etc. to keep my thunder alive. But, what I noticed after watching the extras, many scenes were deleted. Moreover, Jared Leto, too, is quite disappointed because many of his scenes were deleted.
I found a thread on Reddit which compiled about 22 scenes which were deleted in Suicide Squad.
You can thank me later, but you need to read this if you watched the movie yesterday. And it's not a friendly caveat for those who hadn't watched it yet!
PLEASE DON'T PROCEED, IF YOU HAVEN'T WATCHED THE MOVIE, YET!
Here's a list for ya!
"Reshoots reshuffled the scene to be later in the movie in flashback form in favor of a new opening centered on Deadshot."
...but the movie is light on examples of such behavior, which have apparently been deleted. Most of them were reportedly directed at Katana, to whom Boomerang is attracted to."
...revealing that he entire life as a social outcast due to his physical appearance and has convinced himself that he is beautiful in his own way. Croc crossed paths with Batman while working as muscle-for-hire for numerous Gotham's crime bosses, while secretly planning to take over one day. There were also scenes displaying his affinity for making sculptures out of discarded materials. Aside from jokes about Croc viewing himself as 'beautiful,' one of these were retained in the final cut."
"Harley, who is already affiliated with the Joker, follows them on a motorcycle and intercepts their car. Joker bangs his head against the glass in frustration."
"Joker sweet-talks Harley into lowering the gun, charming her, then backhands her across the face. Afterwards he sweet-talks her again and they kiss."
"Early cuts apparently included her really disliking him despite growing affectionate to all the other members of the squad."
Deadshot calls for a shot, Katana wants whiskey, Croc and Boomerang settle for beer, Harley asks Diablo wants and he prefers water which she jokes, "is a good idea." The scene was featured in the trailers, but in the movie, it cuts directly to Deadshot's speech about them all almost pulling the mission off."
"In early cuts he reportedly pushes her out to kill her, then the helicopter gets shot down. This was apparently reworked into the helicopter getting shot down first and Joker pushing her out to save her."
"He calls for Harley to escape with him but she refuses for once in order to help her friends, and the Joker escapes after throwing a live grenade at the group to cover his own escape."
