David Ayer Admits He Should Have Done ‘Suicide Squad’ Differently
  |  @   |  

Suicide Squad may not be the most popular film amongst critics and some fans, but it was one of the top-grossing films of last year. Warner Bros. third entry of the DC Extended Universe was polarizing in more ways than one. The loyal fanbase supported the film even though critics eviscerated it for having too many plotholes and a lack of character motivation. But if there is one thing that Suicide Squad suffered from the most, it’s the fact that the marketing campaign failed to deliver its promise on giving us the Joker (Jared Leto). Sure the Clown Price of Crime was in the film, but trailers and TV spots had assured us he would be a vital plot point. Instead, he was an unnecessary factor. Even Leto voiced his displeasure saying that he shot enough footage for a Joker movie. The extended edition supports that fact.

‘Suicide Squad’ Extended Edition Blu-ray Trailer Reminds Us About A Forgotten Joker
  |  @   |  

Aside from the narrative and pacing flaws of Suicide Squad, one thing the film mishandled was the way we saw the Joker (Jared Leto). As much as the marketing campaign hyped the character, we saw very little of the Clown Prince Of Crime. In fact, Leto, who himself was unhappy that there was so very little of him, said he shot enough footage to make his own movie.

Now, a new trailer to help promote the release of the Suicide Squad Extended Edition Blu-ray shows us how much of that Joker footage we were promised, plus a few other scenes that were in the original trailers but gone from the final cut.

Check it out below.

Movie Review: ‘Suicide Squad’
  |  @   |  

Suicide Squad
Director: David Ayers
Screenwriter: David Ayer
Cast: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: August 5, 2016

Suicide Squad should have been a lot better than this. Much better. Trailers sold us the idea that the film was about bad versus evil, with the bad guys being played by an all-star cast. Then the marketing threw in some awesome music, and the anticipation for DC’s version of the Dirty Dozen only grew. Sure enough, we all thought that this was the one film that the DCEU needed to break the negative streak that it has been on. It has all the right pieces laid out before them to be a great movie. However, maybe we should reserve that hope for another DCEU film because although Suicide Squad isn’t the worst comic book movie ever, it sure as hell one of the most disappointing ones.
