What This Means: ‘Suicide Squad’ Reshoots Adding More Humor

- Advertisement -

As someone who enjoyed Batman v Superman, but was confused and disappointed when I first heard of DC/Warner Brothers’ alleged no-humor policy with these films, I was happy to hear the recent online report that Suicide Squad is going through reshoots to add more humor.

First of all, I hope its dark humor. No one wants the throwback to the campy version of Joker or any of these characters that Joel Schumacher did. Second, what were they thinking? They were going to give us a version of The Joker without humor. Again, dark humor. Joker burns somebody’s face off or puts a pencil in his head and quips about it. Third, the report said that they were throwing tens of millions of dollars into these changes. But the release date is still the same. I know that movies traditionally go through reshoots to tweak things, but I hope they are not rushing anything. I hope the humor is dark and not campy. And I hope this trend continues throughout the DC movies, as the lack of humor was one of my biggest complaints about BvS. And I can’t imagine The Flash without humor, especially after the awesome TV show we’ve been watching.

What do you think? Are you still looking forward to Suicide Squad? Sound off in the comments section.
