Despite a mountain of buzz from those awesome pre-release trailers, the reviews are in — and Suicide Squad is apparently a Batman v Superman-sized mess of its own. Now it seems the studio had an inkling things could be going awry.
Things got a little uncomfortable during last night’s New York City premiere of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad when the director introduced his DC film onstage and made a derogatory remark vis-à-vis comic book archnemesis Marvel Comics.
Though Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice might be the heavy hitter on paper, a whole lot of the buzz seems to be building around Warner Bros.’s other big DC Comics movie hitting this year. Turns out the studio is also starting to hedge its bets.
