Jai Courtney Gives His Two Cents On Those ‘SUICIDE SQUAD’ Reshoots

The internet has been ablaze since last Thursday, with chatter about SUICIDE SQUAD. A report was published that claimed that WB/DC had ordered an extensive round of reshoots to adjust the film’s tone- worried that another dark, grim film would receive the same backlash that BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE did. Yesterday, we received word that the shoots would last a whopping three weeks, and a fellow who works on the technical end of things visited the set and claimed that the studio “made” director David Ayer do the reshoots because the initial cut is, indeed, too dark. 

Now, perhaps in a bit of damage control, actor Jai Courtney- who plays Captain Boomerang- offered his own answers about what’s going on with SUICIDE SQUAD. In a chat with Entertainment Tonight, he was asked if the reports were true. 

I wouldn’t say we’re going back to make it funnier. There’s some additional action stuff that we’ve been doing, which is pretty dope,” Courtney stated. He added, “Really, we’re just adding in that sense.” When the interviewer pressed him about the report, Courtney simply stated, “Can’t believe everything you read.

I’m sure the truth of the situation lies somewhere between the reports and what Courtney’s saying here. Over the course of three weeks, you have plenty of time to work on action, while also punching up those sequences with the kinds of additional wise cracks and villainous fun that fans are likely expecting from a film like SUICIDE SQUAD.

What do you think?

If you ask me, SUICIDE SQUAD always seemed to have a lighter tone than BATMAN V SUPERMAN, and that fits the story perfectly. Problem is, apparently, that those funnier moments seemed to have all been revealed in the trailers, and the studio’s worried that there should be more. I get it. I just don’t think it’ll be as jarring, or as forced, as some fans are concerned about. The film already had a darkly comedic tone, now they just want to accentuate that more. Works for me! Et tu?
