9. David Ayer Is Directing

David Ayer

The title of this feature gave it away, as David Ayer will bring the Suicide Squad to the big screen in 2016. What makes him the right man for the job?

He has experience with gritty crime movies after helming Street Kings and End of Watch, while Sabotage gave him the opportunity to tackle a team of tough as nails mercenaries on a mission for revenge. Sounds like the perfect jumping off point for Suicide Squad, right?

Unfortunately, the response to that movie was not good, but it did give Ayer the chance to stretch his action chops. Don’t get too worried though as his latest movie – Fury – is generating some serious Oscar buzz and should be reason enough to get excited over Ayer’s involvement.

    dredd’s rating had nothing to do with the fact that it bombed, it was poor marketing efforts from the studio and the fact that it was only available in 3D at a lot of theaters.

    id rather watch a movie with the actors from arrow then big name actors wouldnt feel right after seeing them in arrow and they did a great job so why change it for big name actors that will probably just ruin it like most big names actors do to comic book heroes

    It’s on the internet who’s been cast, and for what role already. Apparently the Joker is coming back, and it’s Jared Leto. (?) Dunno. It’s the internet. Take that with a grain of salt.

    Also, as someone who knows almost nothing of the comic book property this is based on, I’d personally hope for an R rating. I’m sick of Disney/Marvel ‘childing’ down everything for a buck. I hope the DC people at least grow some balls and don’t do that as much. Forcing a movie to be PG/PG-13 is always a bad idea. Not everything has to be vile, gory,(or sexy), etc. but some things should be. It helps tell their story.

    This movie will not be like Guardians, because is about villains. And I really want to see it, for so many reason you said like Harley Quinn, their cast and the possible plot. I think The Joker will be the villain because he isn’t a member and he’s too dangerous. Too bad DC just make us wait :´(
