With the divisive and controversial Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice firmly in the rear view mirror, we can now all calmly begin to cast our glance forward to the second chapter of the DC Extended Universe: Suicide Squad. Expectations are now even higher for the supervillain team-up movie and if one of the stars is to be believed, the film may still be able to meet them. Will Smith is describing the film's finale in some pretty epic terms.
Will Smith will portray Floyd "Deadshot" Lawton, the sniper assassin in Suicide Squad, and the actor appears to be truly excited for people to see the film’s final project. He sings the praises of director David Ayer’s ability to create the big giant world within the DCEU while still making a character piece that will give fans an understanding of each member of the team. With all that, however, he tells ComicBook.com that his favorite part of the film is the end.
The ending of the movie is - spoiler free - the ending of the movie is a really unique way to have everybody collide. I'd never been in a scene like this with as many different elements as take place in the final sequence. It's very cool.
While Will Smith doesn’t elaborate exactly what he means by "elements" we can assume that there’s just going to be a lot going on at the end of Suicide Squad. With the cast of characters, and great actors, that David Ayer is working with the potential for a big climax is certainly there. Will Smith is certainly no stranger to filming blockbuster movies so whatever David Ayer has planned appears to be bigger than anything that he’s done before. Bigger than Kenneth Branagh and a giant mechanical spider? Say it ain’t so!
The end may not end up being the only part of Suicide Squad that turns out huge. The film recently went back for reshoots, and while reports have varied regarding exactly why, the official reason was simply to go back and make the entire movie bigger. It's possible the ending was a large part of what they added to the film. If there was any concern that the ending needed more, it would make sense to add it there.
While the early buzz regarding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was mixed, Warner Bros. is apparently very high on Suicide Squad. With Dawn of Justice not meeting expectations, a lot is now riding on the Squad to make the DCEU viable in the long term. Are you excited for Suicide Squad?
