Wonder Woman movie director Patty Jenkins has a different opinion about Suicide Squad.
The response to Suicide Squad is surely discouraging for the franchise and its fans. The reviews of critics for the latest DC endeavor to hit cinemas is less than favorable. Hence, it belies the anticipation generated by earlier teasers that promised redemption from the Batman vs Superman fiasco.
Yet it seems Suicide Squad found an ally in Patty Jenkins. The director of the anticipated Wonder Woman movie attended the UK premiere of the film. Admittedly, she is part of the DC universe. However, the review she offered comes across as genuine and sincere. Thus, it is welcome news endorsement amidst the negativity surrounding the David Ayer production. Moreover, it seems worthy of consideration.
“Uh… You guys. Super confused. Just went to the premiere of #SuicideSquad. Hadn’t seen it. It’s great! Not sort of great. GREAT! I mean… I loved it. So surprised by some reviews. I don’t get it. I thought it was awesome. And NOT just because I’m in the DC world. Truly,” Jenkins tweeted.
Apparently, other people share the same sentiments with the Wonder Woman movie director. According to Comic Book, many fan-oriented sites had given Suicide Squad better reviews. One of the best parts of the film is its focus on fun. Indeed, the appreciation for the fun factor of the film is shared by many fans. Also praise worthy is its great emphasis on the characters, which the publication surmised is possibly what Jenkins liked about it.
In defense of his film, David Ayer shared a quote on Twitter from Emiliano Zapata the Mexican revolutionary, according to Entertainment Weekly. In his follow-up message, Ayer emphasized the film was for the fans and that he had the time of his life working on it.
Zapata quote is my way of saying I love the movie and believe in it. Made it for the fans. Best experience of my life. ❤️

The cast members also felt the sting of bad reviews that hit Suicide Squad. Fans might recall how saddened Ben Affleck was by the response to BvsS. Enchantress Cara Delevingne called them shocking. El Diablo Jay Hernandez hailed the movie early as the next step in the evolution of super hero movies. Hence, he feels bad for the negativity surrounding the film. Would the Wonder Woman movie suffer the same fate as its predecessors?
