Apparently it looks like the Suicide Squad criticism is touching all corners of DC’s Cinematic Universe! Suicide Squad was supposed to save and restore faith in Warner Brothers and DC Comics movies. After the critical savaging experienced by Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, all eyes were on David Ayer’s film featuring a mish-mosh of DC villains. What could go wrong with the guy from Fury and Training Day?
Unfortunately, Suicide Squad suffered the same fate as Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Critics weren’t all that happy with it, though some fans don’t believe it should be considered so foul. Whatever the case may be, people at WB and DC have definitely felt the Suicide Squad criticism. After BvS, reshoots were ordered for Suicide Squad which some expected to add additional humor to the film. However, it looks like that had the side effect of making some scenes a little jarring!
Ezra Miller, who plays the Flash in both BvS and Suicide Squad, said “You needn’t look any further than the Suicide Squad director and cast response to the negative reviews to feel how negative critiques motivate us.” He continued, “Ultimately, we can’t base anything on [the critical response]. As artists, we aim to please absolutely everybody with our work, but we also know that we have to keep expressing ourselves as best as we can express ourselves.” It would seem like now they are starting to take it personally after this recent bout of Suicide Squad criticism! We will see if that’s a good or a bad thing in due time.
Suicide Squad is out now and stars Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Jay Hernandez as Diablo, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Adam Beach as Slipknot, and Cara Delevingne as the Enchantress.
