SoS Ep 29: Will Suicide Squad Be DC’s Deadpool Or Another Batman V Superman Debacle?

On the latest Secrets of the Sire #Podcast: The moment of truth is here for DC’s much hyped bad-guy superhero flick Suicide Squad. But with the reviews in from critics, it’s sounding more Batman V Superman than Deadpool. We discuss that and more with Human Echoes Podcast’s own Tony Southcotte!

Check out an excerpt from the podcast:

There’s a lot at stake for the DC movie universe when Suicide Squad debuts in theaters this Friday. And writer/director David Ayer knows it.

He told Entertainment Weekly as much when asked about the pressure he now faces, brought on by the dismal performance at both the box office and from critics of DC’s supposed tent pole superhero flick Batman V Superman.

“Two years ago ¬Suicide Squad was a tertiary [DC property]. No one knew anything about it. It was a cool little playground, and I was going to go make my movie,” David Ayer said in the interview.

That’s a very interesting statement. Let me read it again. “I was going to make my movie. Does this suggest that it isn’t his anymore?

“Now it’s like the hype bus. All of the attention has swung onto it, and it has to carry a lot more weight than it was ever intended to. I think it can sustain it. But it’s a lot of pressure. You definitely feel the pressure.”
