Now, as most of us know that ever since Warner Bros’ SUICIDE SQUAD was announced, it has been in news. Sometimes for plot, most of the times for its cast (which seems good to me) and a few times for release date. I mean, it is discussed more than the Justice League movie and fans are expecting a dark and thrilling plot with their favorite Joker leading the team. Now, we look at the cast: Margot Robbie will appear as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Tom Hardy as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress. People seem to have mixed feelings about Will Smith casted as Deadshot but making him Black Manta won’t prove better. Now, I believe in the plot but making a film like Guardians of the Galaxy and The Dark Knight requires some fan-service (I mean it in a formal manner). So, I give some suggestions on the behalf of many fans like me to make it a thrilling experience.
DON’T TRY TO ADAPT ANY COMIC BOOK STORYLINE
Tell me, in which comic book storyline, Joker lies about broadening his smile or in storyline is Tony Stark kidnapped while testing a missile in Afghanistan. But, these things make these movies stand out from others. I mean, references are welcome but at times, comic book storylines become unbelievable even for a nerd and not every person watching it will be a nerd. Moreover, rave reviews and positive critical reception represent movies like The Dark Knight, The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. Everyone wants something new and an original plot will make their money more useful.
MAKE IT DARK WITH A PINCH OF COMEDY.
In this flick, we have many rogues, including the prince of crime, Joker himself so fans do expect a thrilling experience with a dark and villainous tone. And a pinch of comedy is something which will favor its collections. In between the dark plot, certain light moments don’t depress people.
THE MUCH NEEDED SUSPENSE
Not many comic book movies come with the element of anonymity or suspense. However, these implementations always lead to a better critical reception and thumbs up from fans.
THE CAMEO THAT COMES AS A REMINDER
The cameo of a justice league member, most probably Batman beating Joker or Deadshot is a great option. First, we get the chance to see the Batfleck and second, as there might not be any Batman movie till 2020, there should be constant appearances by Batman to sustain his mark. Then, Lex Luthor for a cameo is even better. This character must have more screen time, given his dominance and mannerisms.
PLEASE INCLUDE EASTER EGGS
Seeking easter eggs in a movie makes fans watch it again and this seeking phenomenon leads to many results including increased hype for sequels or follow-ups. The scene showing Atom exosuit and in Arrow is the reason for the recent rise in ratings.
TRY TO MAKE IT MORE REALISTIC
The very reason why Arrow is called better than Smallville only after 2 seasons and it dominates The Flash is its grounded approach to the DC universe and the ability to connect people who think that even in comics, there is someone called John Diggle. The grounded tone shan’t be as simple as Arrow but should be believable.
