Director David Ayer teases Suicide Squad weapons

02.04.2015

Suicide Squad David Ayer Jared Leto Jai Courtney Will Smith

It's looking like David Ayer is going to be quite active on his Twitter while working on SUICIDE SQUAD. Last month Ayer shared a behind-the-scenes photo of star Jai Courtney training for the project, and last week he gave us a hint about the plot for the upcoming film. The director was at it again yesterday, tweeting an image of some of the hardware the antihero team will be using in the comic book movie.

David Ayer doesn't reveal who will using the weapons in SUICIDE SQUAD, but when asked if they are Deadshot's (Will Smith), he responded with "No sir. Deadshot gets the really good stuff."

That's a pretty sweet looking assault rifle, and if I had to guess, I'd say it belongs to Rick Flag. Hopefully Ayer continues with the SUICIDE SQUAD teases on his social media accounts, and with any luck, he'll give us a glimpse of the costumes the team will be wearing with a future post.

SUICIDE SQUAD will be in theaters on August 5, 2016.

You know which DC role that would have been perfect for Will Smith? Mr. Terrific.

I don't see a giant Mallet or gun that can shoot a boxing glove or flag that says bang.

Mint guns! I hope this movie has a scene like in the comic`s where Deadshot grabs one of his team members and used them as a human shield .

I like Ayer, but this cast kinda sucks. Will Smith makes a crap Deadshot. I would have been much more willing to buy him as Deathstroke. Leto is going to make a fucking awful Joker. You heard it here first (or not). It's just too soon for anyone to live up to Ledger's take on the character. Jai Courtney is totally nondescript. You could swap him out with any of a thousand other actors and no one would even notice. And Capt. Boomerang has some personality to him so I don't know where you get

Also, as soon as Smith signed on people started bailing on the Ric Flagg role so that doesn't fill me with optimism.

Robie might be a good HQ. Viola Davis is a great choice for Waller. That's about it.

What you talking about? Cast rocks and it seems you want a predictable safe cast instead of a risky daring lineup that will work! Get ready to eat crow and get off Kai jock seems you haters will hate for no reason at all!

What, or who, do you think "rocks" in this cast? I'm a big fan of the comic series and I'm just telling you that I don't see it,

Will Smith's star has fallen. People got tired of him doing the same thing in every movie. No way he takes a part in this ensemble film--even if he had it changed to feature him more--a few years ago. No way.

The script already had to be rearranged to meet the needs of Smith's ego. As any actual fan of the comics knows, Deadshot isn't Batman or even Deathstroke.

The script already had to be rearranged to meet the needs of Smith's ego. As any actual fan of the comics knows, Deadshot isn't Batman or even Deathstroke. He gets his ass kicked a fair amount. Often by Batman or Deathstroke. He's definitely a badass, but he's not central to the DC universe. I can't see Smith playing a true anti-hero. He's given it a shot a few times and in the end he always sells out and has to be the hero. That isn't Deadshot. I also can't see him laying down to the other characters in the DC universe. I can't see him letting Batman kick his ass as he has so often in the comics. It just isn't in his DNA.

Because of Smith's requirements the film lost Tom Hardy as Ric Flag, which was easily the role and actor I was most excited about seeing. The company line is that Hardy had scheduling issues, but plenty of reputable sources have reported he disliked the way Smith's demands changed the ensemble dynamic of the script. Then Gyllenhall, who is close to Ayer and was always in line for Flagg if Hardy didn't do it, passed. It's not a coincidence.

Dude, Jai Courtney is not talented. Sorry. He's gotten more opportunities than most to blow up and cross-over as a mainstream star and he hasn't. He can't act and he's boring to watch. This is borderline consensus at this point.

Leto as the Joker is a terrible idea, and it's a terrible idea to bring the character back to life so soon. Bringing him back in a Suicide Squad film is also a bad idea. The character has virtually nothing to do with Suicide Squad. It feels forced, and Leto is not the actor Nicholson or Ledger were. Not close. He's too image conscious. If you had mentioned him for the part prior to his Oscar for scenery chewing in DBC people would've rioted.


If by "safe" cast you mean talented and capable, then you're correct. I wanted a "safe" cast. I hope I'm wrong. No one would be happier if it all works out than I would, but I think the cast is mostly terrible.

I think Smith will end up dropping out when he can't get his son the job as Robin. I think WB is trying to push thing too fast to build a universe quickly with big named stars to catchup when they should take time. Being behind its ok but make sure your stories and character development is on par with marvel and everyone on all sides can back the Brinks truck to the bank.

This movie really intrigues me. I cant wait until we get a first look at Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Leto as the Joker.

Hopefully, Jai Courtney and Will Smith are equipped with paracetamol, sleeping tablets and plastic bags large enough for their heads.
