Suicide Squad: What Was Cut

A lot of people have mixed feelings about Suicide Squad. Even the people that have enjoyed the film are aware that there are ways that it could have been improved. Even the most adamant of fans are curious about the extra scenes that have been cut from the film at the request of the studios. When the comic con released, the film looked a lot like a dark and possibly R-rated film. With Deadpool being released, it did add fuel to the rumors that Suicide Squad might also get the R rating. However, this has changed due to Warner Bros wanting the DC film universe to have the same tone as the Marvel Universe.

 

This resulted in quite a few scenes being cut from the film. Among the scenes were a few bits with the Joker. There were also quite a few scenes that were featured in the promotional material that did not make it into the theatrical release, and with the way David Ayer defends this theatrical cut, there is no telling if a version of the film which features these scenes is going to see the light of day. However, these extra bits may be available on Blu-ray as deleted scenes.

 

It is also not just what was cut, but how the scenes were arranged. When Suicide Squad was done, Joker was originally to be shown as merely abusive and manipulative to Harley Quinn. However, the theatrical version paints a more sympathetic image of the Joker. He is shown to care about Harley. There are also some scenes that were shown being filmed that did not make it to the cut between Harley and Joker. As it stands right now, the theatrical cut seems to be holding its own. However, even if there is no need for an alternative cut of the film, a lot of fans will be interested in seeing the darker version that was screened before test audiences. All that needs to happen is that the effects are completed.

 

Yanni Hufnagel Touted as Assistant Coach of the Century

In April 2016, Yanni Hufnagel became the assistant Nevada Wolf Pack men’s basketball team coach that’s headed by Eric Musselman. Yanni Hufnagel brings with him quite a large resume in sports. In 2009, Hufnagel was the assistant coach for Harvard’s Crimson men’s basketball program. He worked with Tommy Amaker. Yanni Hufnagel was voted by his peers in 2011 to be the assistant coach most likely to make a big time. Hufnagel wasn’t ready to stay put for long. Four years after he joined the Harvard basketball team, Hufnagel left to become the assistant basketball coach for Vanderbilt Commodores coaching staff where he worked under the coaching of Kevin Stallings. Hufnagel had been given credit for helping Vanderbilt rank 29 in basketball recruitments for 2014. Not long after raising the recruitment rank of basketball players for Vanderbilt, Yani Hufnagel was off again to join another basketball team. He joined the University of Berkely’s coaching staff for their California Golden Bears team.

 

Eric Musselman met Yanni Hufnagel a decade ago, touting Hufnagel as a high energy coach. Musselman noticed that Berkey’s basketball team had scored in the top 10. The California Golden Bears team posted a 23-11 overall record and earn a No. 4 spot in the NCAA Tournament during the final season that Hufnagel was there. It was the highest in the history of the program. He’s responsible for recruiting such highly regarded basketball talents as Jaylen Brown and Ivan Rabb. At Harvard, the then 30-year-old was responsible for the Crimson’s four-year success streak.

 

Yanni Hufnagel was born in Scarsdale, New York in the early 1980s. He graduated from Scarsdale High. After graduation, Hufnagel went to Penn state University and Cornell University where he studied education.
