Suicide Squad — Behind-the-Scenes Featurette: 'It's Good To Be Bad'


added: Thu, Jul 28th '16

"Everybody loves the good guys," says writer-director David Ayers in the opening moments of this four-minute-long featurette for the highly anticipated comic-book movie "Suicide Squad," about a government-controlled mercenary team entirely composed of captured supervillains from the DC universe.

"How do you make an audience fall in love with the villains," Ayers continues in the above video as he pinpoints the exact hurdle he faced while making the movie -- a movie that essentially forces an audience to root for the bad guys. Well, according to Will Smith, who is one of many recognizable faces in the cast, the film isn't a story "about good versus evil." It's more like "a movie about bad versus evil."

And let's face it, being bad can feel oh-so-good. The best example of that is the footage of Jared Leto as The Joker, who appears to be going for broke. Leto is the latest actor to offer his interpretation of Batman's iconic nemesis. And his performance will likely have everyone talking.

"Suicide Squad," which also stars Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, and much more, is set to hit theaters next week, August 5th.

It feels good to be bad... Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
