Find out why Suicide Squad is getting reshoots on the flip…
Though plenty of audiences still enjoyed the Batman v Superman film, it’s not exactly fair to pit DC and Marvel movies against each other. Warner Bros. is taking no chances with Suicide Squad, since one common criticism from both parties is that Batman V Superman was a serious and unrelentingly humorless affair.
While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, Warner Bros. is taking it upon itself to amend that fact.
Birth.Movies.Death editor in chief Devin Faraci reports:
Warner Bros. has heard the concerns and complaints from its fans and will be taking strides to make changes to its slate accordingly.
This doesn’t just include future movies from the DC Cinematic Universe, but ones in which principal photography has already wrapped. In Faraci’s article, he claims that a source revealed that WB is reshooting scenes for Suicide Squad on a big scale, like “tens of millions of dollars big.”
Hearing that WB is aware that they need to inject some fun into these movies – and that’s what I’m hearing is happening here, not that they’re inserting jokes left and right but that they’re beefing up fun character moments and interactions – can only mean good things for the future of the DC Movieverse after the deadly serious, zero fun Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Allegedly, the tone of the popular Suicide Squad trailer featuring “Bohemian Rhapsody” didn’t match the finished product and included every joke in the movie. With these reshoots, Warner Bros. hopes fans will feel that their expectations were better met.
There’s no telling how this will affect Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League movie, but since filming has yet to start, there is still some time to make adjustments if the studio sees fit.
We loved Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but the film did drag in the beginning. We know they had to take you back to the beginning of why Batman is the bat, but when you put it next to the Dark Knight franchise, it falls flat. It was done tasteful, but we’ve seen this so many times we just wanted to hit fast forward. We know why Snyder added it as it holds a tie in at the end of the film, but with reboots comes repetative story lines we are all so sick of.
The only ones who enjoy it are the 10 – 13 year olds who we’re a thought in the mom or dads minds when the Dark Knight or the Batman films hit the big screen with Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson.
