With the announcement of DC and Warner Bros. creating their equivalent to Marvel’s MCU, it was announced that, unlike Marvel films, these movies would pretty much all contain a darker and grittier tone. Then, with the announcement of Suicide Squad being one of the films in their DCEU, you’d kind of expect that film to be dark and gritty, seeing as how it’s based off of a team of villains and murderers and psychopaths, and i mean the title has the word “Suicide” in it. But, according to some, the film isn’t going to be so grim after all.
According to Devin Faraci (the editor in chief over at BDM), he spoke to an unnamed source a couple of weeks ago who claims that Warner Bros. is actually revisiting some scenes and reshooting them (expensive scenes, i might add), due to the extremely positive response from fans to what was shown in the film’s first official trailer (which was accompanied by Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody). According to the source, all the “fun” and light-humored jokes that were shown in that trailer were literally all of that type of content in the whole film. The trailer apparently didn’t match the tone of the entire film at that time, so Warner Bros. is going back and redoing some scenes to try and lighten the film to a certain degree, to make it a more enjoyable experience for the audience as a whole.
Some people think they’re also doing this in direct response to a lot of the negative feedback that was given to Batman V Superman, and that may be true, but like we said, these are unconfirmed rumors at the moment so don’t take our word on this. We’ll just have to wait and see how the film actually turns out in the end.
Suicide Squad is scheduled to release on August 5th, 2016.
