Director David Ayer says DC’s upcoming “Suicide Squad” will be “a Dirty Dozen with supervillains”. This is exactly what I expect from Ayer, considering his distinct directing and creative style. There is much to look forward to with Ayer at the helm, fans of his work will be familiar with his collaborations with Christian Bale in “Harsh Times”, Denzel Washington in “Training Day”, and his recent Hollywood success with Brad Pitt in “Fury”. “Suicide Squad” seems perfect for someone with his creative vision, he says:
“I can say that it’s a Dirty Dozen with supervillains,” “Then I can ask the question, ‘Does a movie really need good guys?’ ” ” ‘Fury’ whetted my appetite for a bigger canvas and this idea of world creation,” “You can do amazing things as a filmmaker if you have the proper tools, and those are time and money.”
He is very excited about the DC project , he added:
“I love the passion [comic-book fans] have for these characters and these worlds. I think there’s something incredible about the comic genre and technology has finally caught up with pen and ink to render these fantastic worlds in a way that feels believable and visceral to audiences. It’s a secular religion in that regards. The mythology that these characters represent – the idea of them as fallen gods on Earth – is intriguing to me. I can’t wait to start exploring those corridors.”
The DC Comics supervillain team movie will be scripted by Justin Marks. The story revolves around a group of convicted villains in DC Comics Universe who were given a second chance for redemption. Dan Lin (“The Lego Movie”) will serve as a producer. No release date has been confirmed just yet.
