The Suicide Squad’s director is psychotic? Well, I guess we couldn’t have asked for anything more! Perhaps DC/WB were looking for somebody who truly envisioned their…um…vision! Joking aside, in a recent interview with Collider, Captain Boomerang actor Jai Courtney spoke to Suicide Squad‘s effect. Sure, we’ve heard that Suicide Squad was going back for reshoots(people thought it was for comedy but it turns out it was action) but Courtney let’s us know exactly what he thinks we’ll love about the movie…and how the Suicide Squad’s director is psychotic. I believe I mentioned that already, no? When asked what Courtney thinks the audience will most appreciate about the David Ayer flick is, “The boundaries we’re pushing within that genre. It’s so hard to talk about without saying anything, and as you know, I can’t say anything. I think people can see from the material that is out there that there is something new and exciting that they haven’t seen within this realm that Suicide Squad will offer. We’re all just pumped to share that with the world.” Somewhat evasive, but at least he’s enthusiastic!
Courtney then continued about David Ayer, the aforementioned artistic sociopath.“Psychotic. He is the man. He’s one of the greats,” said Jai. “I think he has an amazing future ahead of him, and I hope we get to work together again. I have nothing but admiration for him, and small amounts of fear. That about sums it up. He loves that attention to detail, and he’s not interested in comfort. Nothing is about making anything easy for anyone. And that’s not about making it hard, it’s just that when you’re off center, it creates a space for wonderful things to happen. That’s the world he likes to play in, and I think that’s very exciting.” So not only was Jared Leto being a total nutter but David Ayer as well! That’s certainly promising, isn’t it? Suicide Squad opens up on August 5th, 2016 and stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, and Scott Eastwood.
