David Ayer Claims ‘Suicide Squad’ Set Photos Are Finished

By June 1, 2015
Comic-Con got exclusive footage of the upcoming Suicide Squad, showing how the film will loo for the first time.

In a recent editorial piece, we pointed out how the immense amount of set photos and videos appearing on social media from the set of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, had the potential to spoil the film far ahead of its release. Now, the director has directly addressed the concerns of some fans by saying that, basically, we haven’t seen anything yet.

Taking to Twitter, Ayer seemed focused on assuaging the fears of fans by telling them that the production will be transitioning from shooting at outdoor locations, and will start shooting in more concealed ones, presumably on soundstages within the fences of a studio. He said,

So far, some of the material that’s emanated from the film’s set has included the Joker’s full costume, an apparent car chase involving the Joker in a Lamborghini fleeing the Batmobile, as well as confirming at least a partial appearance by Batman himself, with a stuntman in the Batsuit from Batman v Superman on the top of the Joker’s car barreling down the streets of the location shoot in Toronto. Still, while outwardly these look like pretty major spoilers, it’s reassuring to see Ayer directly address the concerns of fans. What possible further major secrets can this film have? That will be an interesting question hanging over fans’ heads now, and it’s likely that a whole lot of people are now aware of Suicide Squad due to the Batmobile, Batman, and the Joker showing up within the film.

Suicide Squad will star the likes of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang. It’s written and directed by David Ayer, and will be released on August 5th, 2016. For more on the film as it takes shape, keep it locked on GeekNation.
