I just read an article…okay, I read several articles about Suicide Squad heading in for reshoots to add levity to the movie. According to the articles, the trailer featuring Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody contains every joke in the movie.
I’ve read everything from these reshoots being a knee-jerk reaction to the dismay of audiences at the darkness of Batman vs. Superman (although what did they expect when the good guys battle it out?) to a response to the overwhelming positive reaction to the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer.
Either way, this raises a couple of concerns, because while they are undeniable evil-doers, Harley Quinn and Joker, in particular, offer the opportunity for some great banter and black humor. You know, the kind you’re almost embarrassed you laughed at. Also, did you not have faith in the movie you produced when you produced it?
I’ve been looking forward to this film since the first announcement, and now…now, there’s a bit of trepidation. Don’t get me wrong, I’m seeing this movie opening weekend (barring crazy school/work/life situations). I’m just a little worried about the product I’m buying into now.
What do you think? Smart move? Lack of faith? This is what the comments section is for.
‘Til next time,
