Over the past few weeks as the production for the upcoming DC Cinematic Universe film “Suicide Squad” began to ramp up we got our first glimpses through various set leaks, spy photos and even some video of many of the scenes that were being shot of that film. Over the weekend “Suicide Squad” director David Ayer responded in a series of tweets “Well we survived the streets. Time to go dark now. Remember, only the tiniest glimpse has been exposed. Our surprises are intact.” With that being said, it is still sort of surprising the lack of security that surrounded that set. When “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” was filming in Detroit the security that surrounded that film was always high. Zack Snyder was able to retain so much control over what was able to leak out and what wasn’t. During that shoot the only real thing that was leaked out was the first glimpses of the new Bat-mobile, and Henry Cavill in his new Superman costume. Other than that we didn’t see entire scenes between major actors being filmed on someones smart phone from hundreds of yards away. So what is up with the lack of security of on the set of SS?
Maybe it was deliberate of them to not have such high security on that film to get more people excited about seeing that movie come next summer? The fact that it is now confirmed that Ben Affleck’s Batman will appear in SS might get more people in the seats during next summer’s crazy summer movie season. I guess the real reason why so much was leaked will never be found out, but with that being said lets hope that going forward there are no more leaks or videos of Jared Leto’s Joker smacking Margie Robie’s Harley Quinn. I guess we at Shanlian on Batman will keep our fingers crossed for that.
