While DC's last venture onto the big screen was met with some mixed results, they've gone full steam ahead with their next chapter, and the director of Suicide Squad says that his movie is now ready for audiences to see. David Ayer does have one important warning for fans, however. Be prepared for something like nothing you've ever seen before.
This morning, Suicide Squad director David Ayer announced to the world via Twitter that Suicide Squad's post-production was officially wrapped. He also said there's nothing like the movie out there, which certainly makes us all curious to see the final product.
Looking back on all the coverage that Suicide Squad has received over the last several months, we realize that we really don't know what we're going to get, so David Ayer's statement could be very true. While some of the early filming was very public, and announced to the world that Batman would make an appearance, once those scenes were done the film went dark, and we've heard very little about it since. We can't help but wonder if the news about Jared Leto's infamous presents was an intentional distraction to keep fans focused there, and not on the movie itself.
Suicide Squad will be interesting for many reasons, but the first is that it's the first part of the new DCEU not directed by Zack Snyder. Warner Bros. has, in the past, said that they want their directors to have more creative control over DC properties than directors are viewed as having at Marvel. It certainly seems that David Ayer feels that he has made something truly unique. He couldn't really say that there's "nothing like it" if it was significantly like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Fans were concerned recently about how the final product would be impacted by reshoots that Suicide Squad went through recently. While David Ayer, as well as the cast, tried to play the reshoots off as no big deal. The word was that Warner Bros. wanted to make the film funnier. The implication was that the final product was not going to resemble the "Bohemian Rhapsody" trailer, that was very well received.
Suicide Squad has an all-star cast which includes, Margot Robbie, Will Smith, and Jared Leto. Also, Jai Courtney is in it.
Are you ready to check out this "beast" of a film? While the production may be ready, we still have some time to wait, as Suicide Squad won't hit theaters until August 5.
