Why Margot Robbie Had To Re-Do Suicide Squad Shoots

Are you excited for the release of the new DC Comics smash, Suicide Squad in August?

Me too. With a cast made up of people like Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Jared Leto - how could it not?!

Here’s the trailer in case you need a refresher…

I know right? MASSIVE.

So, why did Margot Robbie and the cast have to get called back in after filming had ended and re-shoot scenes?

They can thank Ryan Reynolds for that.

According to Birth.Movies.Death, Warner Bros. requested that director David Ayer add “more humor and lightness” into his “bad guys” showcase, the third film in the DC Extended Universe (after Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice). A source said “every joke in the movie is in that trailer,” which means there were five jokes in the entire thing.

I have since spoken to more sources and I understand that the reshoots are happening right now, as recently as this week, and that they’re big – tens of millions of dollars big…

Hearing that WB is aware that they need to inject some fun into these movies – and that’s what I’m hearing is happening here, not that they’re inserting jokes left and right but that they’re beefing up fun character moments and interactions – can only mean good things for the future of the DC Movieverse.

In order to compete with the humour Ryan Reynolds brought to Deadpool, they had to get stuck into it again. Also, here’s a NEW trailer for you to devour. You’re welcome.
