Despite being $15 million dollars away from $800 million at the box office, many are still wondering how the “failure” of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice will affect the remaining DC Comics films. This idea was ignited even further when it was revealed that Suicide Squad, which releases August 8th, was to be getting reshoots. Rumors immediately went wild that this was to add “more comedy” which many believed BVS lacked.
After two dismissals of this, director David Ayers talked at length about the reshoots to Collider:
“I don’t think there’s any director that finishes a movie and says, ‘Wow that’s perfect, that’s what I really want it to be’, Ayer said. “Every movie I’ve ever made I wish I could go and grab some additional stuff and that’s exactly the chance I got this time. It’s like getting a new car but you get fancy rims and a new stereo.”
Also in the interview, he talked about having Batman appear in his film, which we’ve gotten glimpses of in the last two trailers.
“I love Batman”, said the director. “Batman was always my favorite superhero, and then to have him walk on my set one day was an incredible experience. Even my cynical, hard-bitten movie crew got quiet when that happened. And Ben’s a great dude, he’s a good guy to work with.”
