Probably you all know that James Gunn is going to release The Suicide Squad very soon. All the casts are from the previous film, unfortunately, we will not be able to see Will Smith. Do you know why? Then follow it. The audience noticed that DC’s movies universe is not doing well in the box office. There are lots of changes in the characters and story. Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel was begun in 2013 by the DCEU. It was a marvellous and wonderful movie.
We have seen a wonderful battle between the two superheroes in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. After that DCEU introduction several anti-heroes in his next project Suicide Squad. The movie will be directed by David Ayer, and it is followed by various kinds of supervillains. The supervillains are Captain Boomerang, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Slipknot, and all of them were recruited by Amanda Waller so that they can encounter dangerous missions and reduce their sentences.
Suicide Squad didn’t collect much revenue from the box office and the audience didn’t like it. The critics said that the characters need to get into the characters, and there was a lack of sense of humour. The most criticised characters were Jared Leto in the role of a joker. The filmmakers still felt optimistic and decided on the sequel. David Ayer was chosen to direct the film.
Ayer left the project and at that time, James Gunn was given the task to write and direct the movie. After that lots of changes coming up in the characters and story.
This time, the Suicide Squad will come up with fresh new characters. Some of them are from the previous movie. But this time Will Smith will not be there in the film.
David Ayer and Will Smith had a plan to return in 2017. However, Ayer remained busy in directing Gotham City Sirens, and Smith remained busy with his schedule. However, in 2019, Smith had some conflict with the projects, so he left it. The filmmakers decided that Smith will be introduced as Deadshot in their next project. Due to the pandemic situation, Deadshot was postponed at the end of 2021. Suicide Squad is going to release soon, however, Smith’s absence will not affect the filmmakers much, as Gunn is going to make standalone sequel very soon.
We can expect to see the pair of Will Smith and Ayer in the future. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and wait to see the duo together.
