Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice left many fans commenting on how serious in tone the movie was, and while some praised its dedication to the darker origins of the iconic characters, others were quick to mention that it threatened to take the fun out of a genre that is seen by most as a bit of escapist fun.
Now, it seems like Warner Bros are heeding audience's worries, with Birth.Movies.Death. reporting that the studio are now re-shooting certain scenes of their upcoming picture Suicide Squad to make it more light-hearted.
Over time, movies in the DC Extended Universe have been known to err more on the serious side, most notably in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. This tone not only stems from the source material, but arguably over the years, has acted as a way of distancing itself from rival Marvel, which has always been the frontrunner when it comes to comedy.
So jokes have often fallen by the wayside and have not been present in the DC films before. Something that they seemingly want to rectify, and what with a film starring the Joker and quick-witted Harley Quinn at their disposal, now it finally seems possible.
The recent trailers went down incredible well with viewers, and due to the ecstatic response Warner Bros instructed the team to put more moments like those in the final film.
According to Birth.Movies.Death, another separate source also validated this report. Allegedly, they even continued on to say that the re-shoots are a massive affair, with the budget for the re-shoots in the tens of millions of dollars as the writers expand the interaction between characters. All in all, this can only be a good thing, Warner Bros is seriously listening to fan feedback and if they're really giving the general public what they want, that can only mean everyone wins. More bucks for them and more enjoyment for us!
Directed by David Ayer, the film centres on a number of imprisoned supervillains, rather than the typical heroes, who are forced to carry out Black Ops tasks for a corrupt government agency in exchange for less severe jail sentences. It is scheduled to be released in both UK and US cinemas on 5 August 2016 and stars Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Will Smith and more.
