Last month, the word around the superhero campfire was that “Suicide Squad” was undergoing some extensive reshoots to make it funnier, and less serious than a certain Zack Snyder movie. However, that narrative has begun to shift. Last week, cast member Jai Courtney said it was about adding more action, not jokes, and it’s the line director David Ayer is taking as well.
Hitting Twitter, the director has struck back at those who have posited the studio is worried about “Suicide Squad,” saying that Warner Bros. “loves” his movie and have essentially allowed him to go back and add even more awesomeness (read: more action). And really, if last night’s trailer is anything to go by, Ayer has nothing to worry about in terms of the movie being “fun.”
So there you go. If anything, “Suicide Squad” is going to be even more balls to the wall than previously thought. The movie opens on August 5th.
