After the grim and gritty world established in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad(Directed by David Ayer) looked to bring a lighter tone and an injection of excitement into the DCEU. Can a movie comprised of DC villains pull off what Batman/Superman failed to do for the studio? And what about those re-shoots everyone kept talking about? All of this and more in this episode.
