I previously reported on Jai Courtney addressing of reshooting on DC’s Suicide Squad to lighten the mood, a rumour she denied when she commented:
“I wouldn’t say we’re going back to make it funnier, there’s some additional action stuff that we’ve been doing,”
Now the films director David Ayer has added his word to the rumours, sharing a similar sentiment on his twitter feed, commenting:
“#SuicideSquad “reshoots for humor” is silly. When a studio loves your movie and asks what else you want, go for it! #ThanksWB #moreaction”
The reshoots are said to be very extensive, lasting three weeks, but in light of the critical panning of Batman V Superman one cannot help wonder if Warner Bros aren’t securing the foundations of their universe through being overcautionary, something overlooked both in Hollywood and real life.
