    Ayers confirms Waller figuring out Batman's secret identity and more importantly reveals after Joker killed Robin, he whupped him before locking him up in Arkham.

    Robbie confirmed Harley's descent into insanity was longer but cut for time to focus on the main story.

    Why even include Harley's origin if you are going to cut all the context from it? The general audience aren't comic book geeks who know what the hell is going on in that scene. To them it just looks like Joker told her to jump on a dare. Joker was much more involved in the main story in an alternative cut as well, so they gutted the main story not just the backstory of one of the movie's protagonists (Harley and Deadshot).

    This ties into the problem of them cutting out how sadistic the Joker really is and abusive toward Harley, making it into some pure love story where Joker is oh so sad Harley is gone. Joker throws Harley out of the helicopter in the original cut, which mirrors that he was ready to let her die from that fall into those chemicals but changed his mind at the last moment.

    I love the mix they did with the original Heathens song and the Orchestra.

    Yeah, lot's of nice tidbits. Judging by drenched Harley's mug shot - the flashback took place on October 13, 2014. And Harley was an "accomplice to the murder of Robin." Thought I saw that when I saw the movie.

    Enchantress was 6313 years old -- so born around 4297 B.C.

    Both Deadshot and Harley's files solidify Gotham City is in New Jersey. Though I'm sure that Shortlist guide probably said something about it.

    ... Yeah see this is why it was a stupid idea to make a Suicide Squad movie when it's obvious you had to cut so much just to get time to focus on the squad. Like I said before, dial it down to a Deadshot and Harley movie (as Suicide Squad aren't that well known to audiences anyway and it's not like you would of gotten more tickets just because Killer Croc or Katana or El Diablo starred in the movie) and have the main antagonist force be Amanda Waller and her cronies and have the focus be on Harley and Deadshot so that way you can really flesh out their backstories without it feeling so jarbled. Heck you could of just ended it with them in jail to set up a Suicide Squad movie next even which would of been better then what we got. Maybe WB would be hesistant on just Robbie and Smith's starring power alone after Focus underperformed last year but... would of been a lot better movie then what we got. Oh well maybe the backlash over this and BvS will at least make WB realize over stuffing a movie with boat loads of characters result in a general mess that gets loads of negative reviews and they'll learn to focus their efforts better in the future. At least Wonder Woman doesn't look terribly cluttered at all.

    As someone who dislikes Shia, I'm glad WB made that choice.

    Just another example WB had more say in everything than we think and that everything around the cut was damage control and lies. Sadly we will never see the real full cut as intended.

    Wow! Just read the soundtrack went gold a few days ago (sold 500,000 copies) and was the only soundtrack in 2016 so far to do so.

    10/26: Better list of specials seen on digital release.

    They probably like his films or his style, want to try something new, think they can convince him with a pile of cash and then there's also a small chance he might like the characters/plot/setting. So all in all not completely nonsense. But I can't quite imagine it, yes.
