11 crucial Suicide Squad trailer scenes cut from the final film

Why was so much of the superhero movie changed at the last minute?

4. Katana collects souls


In another weaponly moment, Katana (Karen Fukuhara) has her sword collect the souls of her enemies – an ability mentioned but not seen in the finished film.


5. Let’s do something fun


Cara Delevigne’s Enchantress gets a slight change in attitude in this line that didn’t make the final cut, with the actress also speaking in her own voice as the powerful witch (whereas the film version had a dubbed or modulated style of speech).

6. Diablo fights fire with fire


When we first meet pyrokinetic gangster Diablo (Jay Hernandez) in Suicide Squad, he’s held inside a watery tube – but as can be seen in early trailers, he was supposed to also spend his time in an ordinary cell where he could play with matches to his heart’s content.

7. Roll call


A scene of Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) and June Moone/Enchantress (Cara Delevigne) sharing some down time while the colonel sarcastically described his new squad didn’t make the released version of the film.
