Are they really re-shooting the upcoming “Suicide Squad” movie? Another DC film, “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” earlier drew flak for its reported lack of humour. Did this really prompt producers to re-shoot the upcoming movie about the “Worst Heroes Ever?”
According to Birth Movies Death, the original cut of “Suicide Squad” is not as funny as its trailer. “Every joke in the movie is in that trailer,” a source told Birth Movies Death. Warner Bros., the studio behind these DC adaptations, is reportedly aware that “they need to inject some fun into these movies.” So, will they really re-shoot “Suicide Squad?”
The source told the film blog that producers are in the process of redoing some scenes to add “more humour and lightness into the film.” However, they are reportedly not “inserting jokes left and right.” Instead, they will be “beefing up fun character moments and interactions” in the movie.
Re-shoots for the film, Birth Movies Death reported, have taken place “as recently as this week.” The movie’s release is just four months away. Will these new re-shoots mean fans will have to wait a little longer to see the squad of super villains together? No news as of yet to confirm if the release will be delayed. However, Movie Pilot does report that the movie will likely hit theatres in August as scheduled.
If all goes as planned, fans will be able to catch a funnier “Suicide Squad” as it hits the big screen on August 5.
Meanwhile, another DC adaptation, “Justice League” will reportedly begin filming this month. Birth Movies Death suggests that Zack Snyder’s take on this iconic superhero team might also adopt a lighter, more humorous tone. But this news has yet to be confirmed. “Justice League: Part 1” is set to hit theatres on November 16, 2017.
