Suicide Squad was a revelation for the DCEU. The film differentiated between what to do and what not to do in an upcoming DC film. The fans had serious expectations from the movie but featuring the “B-Team” of the DC franchise; the movie could not stand up to the fans expectations. The characters portrayed in the film had been drawn out well in the DC comics, but characters like Deadshot and the Joker were underplayed. This review was given by the audience as well as the critics. Director David Ayer was thoroughly questioned on the movie, and the 2016 DC flick got its comeback with a new director.
