Reviews for Suicide Squad have burnt the David Ayer-helmed film as an untidy and messy effort. Squad’s dark and twisted plot appears to have the similar ill effects of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although Warner Bros. has said they’re “very proud of the result,” there’s a story in the background history that proposes the studio’s most recent injury was in fact, self-inflicted.
1. Ayer Was Untested
Not all directors who take up an eventual tentpole franchise have had a history with the genre. As it is, we have Colin Trevorrow and Jurassic World, Gareth Edwards and Godzilla, and Sam Taylor-Johnson and Fifty Shades of Gray. David Ayer’s filmography was sufficiently great to legitimize Warners giving him the keys to the Squad. His recent movies, including Fury and End of Watch, have been exceptionally successful. However, once BvS was labelled for being excessively desolate, the studio began biting its nails. According to a source, Warner exec, Kevin was truly put off about the harm to the brand. The worry was that the tone of Ayer’s film won’t live up to the advertorials’ guarantee of a zippy pic with mind to match its grit. Therefore, the studio supposedly made a drastic move.
2. It Was Hurried
Suicide Squad was announced by Warner Bros. as a component of its hopeful 10-film stretch of DC adaptations in October 2014. This gave David Ayer, the director,less than two years to put it together. This turned out to be a major issue beginning with the script, which a source claimed Ayer wrote in about six weeks. Well, what do you expect then?
