Here’s your one warning that if you haven’t seen the film by now: There are definitely some major spoilers below. So, if you haven’t seen Suicide Squad yet, you might want to turn back. While the film received a mixed response from critics, Suicide Squad has received a much more positive response from fans and crushed box office records this past weekend.
Even those that didn’t really dig the film did seem to enjoy the characters as well as one particular scene that occured during the film’s credits sequence which featured an encounter between Amanda Waller and Bruce Wayne. Speaking with Collider, director David Ayer commented on what it was like shooting that mid-credit scene, a first for any DC theatrical release, which he told the outlet was “always in the original script” for the film.
It’s two type A powerful people going at it which is great drama, it doesn’t get better than that. That was a lot of fun to shoot, Ben’s a ridiculously talented actor and Viola [Davis], forget it, she has insane depth and range; and so being able to direct the two of them that’s what I loved, that’s why I’m in this business, it’s scenes like that, that was a true pleasure.
As for the film’s ending, the director revealed that was one of the first things that they shot during the film’s first week of prinicipal photography before commenting on the choice to end on that moment.
I don’t want to give stuff away but it’s that anything is possible, and that’s the thing, for as much control and commend Amanda Waller has over these guys, at the end of the day they’re supervillains and they’re gonna do supervillain stuff. Plus, the Joker/Harley relationship just seemed like the right button for the movie, it opens so many doors if another one of these were ever to turn up under a rock somewhere.
In regards to a potential sequel, Ayer says that “there may be a cocktail napkin with some scribbles on it somewhere, I don’t know [Laughs].” What did you think about the ending to Suicide Squad?
