Suicide Squad Reshoots Underway; Jai Courtney Responds
Following the less than well received Batman Vs. Superman, it was rumored WB was going back to do reshoots for Suicide Squad to inject a bit more humor, which is similar to what is seen in the trailers.
Now reshoots are confirmed as Entertainment Tonight caught up with Jai Courtney who explains it's to add in more action and comments on the rumors.
"I wouldn't say we're going back to make it funnier," Courtney said in the below video "There's some additional action stuff we've been doing which is pretty dope... Can't believe everything you read."
However, a "tech guy" working on Hollywood is actually on the scene of the Suicide Squad reshoots where he claims he spoke with someone on set who says the reason is "it was too dark."
@BatmanNewsCom talking to people on set today they said the studio "made him do reshoots" because it was too dark. Interesting words.— Brett Schulte (@brettschulte) April 6, 2016
