Can Joker save the 'Suicide Squad' extended cut?

Warner Bros. will be bringing the ensemble flick to Blu-ray on December 13, about a month after its digital release.

"Suicide Squad" wasn't received as well as Warner Bros. would have liked, but perhaps the newly announced extended cut could turn things around.

The cut, to be digitally released on November 15 ahead of a December 13 Blu-ray launch, could remedy an issue some had with the original: The conspicuously small role of The Joker.

Jared Leto, who plays the iconic villain in "Suicide Squad", previously told IGN that there were "so many" Joker scenes that didn't make the theatrical cut, so it seems likely that some of these will make the extended edition.

Though it didn't hit the commercial heights of some of the flicks in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, "Suicide Squad" was no box office slouch. The film made over $730 million worldwide, and is in the top 50 domestic grossing films of all time.
