Last week, it was reported that Suicide Squad’s runtime was a rather measly 1 hour 40 minutes. Thankfully, director David Ayer came out on Twitter and swiftly quashed such rumours after Rotten Tomatoes had appeared to put up the runtime on their app.
Now, the rather reliable folks over at Collider have revealed that it’s actually 2 hours and 10 minute, putting in the medium-range for modern superhero movies. To put it into context, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War ran at 150 minutes, give or take, while Deadpool was a slightly breezier 1hr 48 min.
Synopsis: It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
