The crazy James Gun tape
After seeing how it worked Suicide squad David Ayer at the box office back in 2016, it is not surprising that many raised their eyebrows to discover that a new film based on the same story was going to make an appearance.
It is true that I had James Gun, who already had previous experience in directing a choral cast and managing an air plot thug -Remember that he is the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel – but restarting a story like DC was not anything.
Luckily, all skeptics are wrong and the new proposal has turned out to be a breath of fresh air in which madness, absurdity and humor continue to prevail without neglecting a plot that manages to entertain all the time. In it, among other characters, the great villain stands out, a giant starfish called Starro that brings our protagonists upside down. However, this was not always the case: in Gun’s head, the one in charge of confronting Harley quinn, Bloodsport, Rick Flagg, King Shark, Ratcatcher 2 Y Polka dot man was to be a well-known character in the DC family.
Superman as the villain of the story
James Gun himself has been in charge of recognizing that at first, when he began to write the script, he had the enemy of kryptonite in his head. However, finally the desire to face the protagonists could Starro, the alien starfish and one of its favorite DC villains:
I thought it would be an interesting plot. Then I settled on Starro. He is a character that I love from comics. I think he’s a perfect comic book character because he’s absolutely ridiculous, but at the same time very scary in his own way. Everything he does is scary. When I was a kid, the idea of him putting those face hugger in Superman and Batman. […] He’s a ridiculously huge and colorful villain.
As well indicated in Gizmodo, as much as Gun had wanted, he would also have needed the approval of Warner, that he probably would not have seen with good eyes that his great hero – yes they also have Batman, but let’s say Superman commission a more traditional and “clean” idea of what these types of characters should be – became a villain in a film as particular also as is The Suicide Squad.
What’s your opinion about it? Would you have liked to see Superman instead of Starro like bad bad of the tape?
