Filming’s now underway in Toronto, Canada for David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, and Will Smith is the first to be spotted on set. While his Deadshot look definitely won’t be what you’re expecting, it does in some ways pay homage to the source material.
Here’s what Comic Book Movie had to say about it:
“Will Smith has been snapped on the set of Suicide Squad, and the costume he’s wearing has already created quite a stir on social media. It’s worth noting though that Deadshot appears to have both eyes here, so this could be a flashback to a time before he was a killer. The presence of a young girl seems to indicate that anyway, and it looks like they’re shopping together. Either way, the Gotham City police car confirms where these scenes are set, so that too raises some interesting questions about the movie. For example, could it be that this will be an origin story for the character?”
Overall, I’m not a huge fan when I see things like this. My first reaction is to be extremely negative, but I really don’t want this movie to bomb. We shall see though when it hit theaters late next year.
