In about three weeks, Suicide Squad will hit the big screen. Warner Bros. is now letting it all out, with pics, interviews, and new details about the characters. Even more, Thursday seems to be a big day, with a final trailer arriving. As far as we are concerned, we’ve been sold ever since last year’s Comic Con.
During an interview with Comic Book Resources, David Ayer explained why he chose the supervillains he did. As far as Deadshot is concerned, he was a no-brainer for the director, being a leader of the Suicide Squad. Approaching this subject, Ayer said that, however, calling him the leader would be too much. And that is because nobody in the squad cares about this kind of thing.
Then there is Captain Boomerang, who, according to Ayer, is the most villainous of all of the Suicide Squad members. Thus, he is the one to bring the chaotic evil into the team. Where does that leave, for example, Harley Quinn?
As far as Margot Robbie's character is concerned, David Ayer hints that she is a part of the seasoning. And, apparently, the director made the best decision when choosing the character and the actress. And, given Harley's history, he also had to add the Joker - to this movie, according to him, they are the salt and pepper.
Of course, he also talked about Batman, saying that he has always been a fan of the Dark Knight, and that this was his chance to direct a movie with him. So it was his decision to insert the Caped Crusader into the flick (contrary to some rumors). Furthermore, Batman has been in the script from the start.
And this has also been an opportunity to present the hero from a different perspective. If in the Batman flicks we see everything from his perspective, in Suicide Squad we will see him from the perspective of the villain. And that, according to Ayer, will be freaking scary.
Given the introduction that this version of Batman was given in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, we can’t wait to see more him.
