The Suicide Squad runtime is officially 2 hours and 12 minutes long. Gunn broke the news on his Twitter account while responding to a hilarious dream that a fan had.

I dreamed that The Suicide Squad was split into two movies; we saw the first part, featuring cameos, extremely gory training montages, no/offscreen deaths, country meadows, the Thinker with hair and the WB offices,” said the fan, who then asked for the exact time. Gunn said the dream was “very inaccurate.”
