The goal of this cut of this movie is to tone down the movie and to try to revert the movie to what David Ayer’s original vision may have been.

  • All around brighten up the movie, add a darker tint to the movie, and desaturate the color slightly, not to the point where it’s pretty much B/W like in Zack Snyder movies.
  • All of the neon imagery will be removed or changed to black and white. Including the title cards which will be changed to B/W.
  • The movie opens with Amanda Waller walking into the restaurant with the main theme of the movie playing. The title card will be in B/W.
  • All the title cards will be removed, and the soundtrack (not including “Standing in the Rain” by Action Bronson, because that fits the scene that it is in, unlike most of the soundtrack).
  • “Super Freak” will be replace by the score.
  • Fix the editing in the club scene.
  • Rescore the car chase scene with “Why So Serious?” from the Dark Knight score, but the buildup in that song will start in the club scene.
  • Rescore the bank robbery scene with The Flash with Steven Price score.
  • Use original score during El Diablo’s and Killer Croc’s backstories.
  • Move the section of the movie where Waller, Flag, and June go to the prison before the pentagon scene. This is so it’s like they’re checking if they are sure about this team before confirming you want to make the team.
  • The Joker knife circle scene is moved until after visiting all the Suicide Squad members in prison.
  • Move the scene where Waller compares the Suicide Squad in World War 2 to after the Pentagon scene.
  • Move the Griggs interrogation scene to after the scene previously mentioned. Replace the line “You’re going to be my friend”, with “I can’t wait to show you my toys”.
  • Rework the scene where June says Enchantress in her sleep to be having a nightmare about the Enchantress, leading her to release the Enchantress.
  • Rescore “Activate Task Force X”
  • Cut the line “You are so screwed” because Grigg’s pay off is to give Harley the phone, but that line indicates, he’ll have another payoff, but he never does.
  • Rescore the airport scene.
  • Try to omit Slipknot.
  • Rescore Gear up montage
  • Recut Katana’s introduction
  • Rescore the Airplane scene
  • Cut cringey jokes
  • Add a voice over of Deadshot’s daughter when he looks at the clothes
  • Cut back the scene where Harley plays psychiatrist because this scene runs on too long.
  • Rework the scene where Diablo uses his powers to make the reason he uses his powers to be Deadshot accusing him of not standing for anything instead of Deadshot touching his head.
  • Rescore the chemical bath scene.
  • Make the twist that Enchantress is the villain. The whole time, people will think the target is Incubus, but when Flag explains it Enchantress before the bar scene, we already know this, so make it a twist.
  • Move the scene of Enchantress getting back her heart to after the squad enters the bar, but before they pour drinks.
  • Make the dream sequences in B/W.
  • Make the fight with Incubus, and the fight with Enchantress faster paced.
  • Rescore the scene when the squad are prison again with the movie’s main theme.
