Suicide Squad is, undeniably, a gigantic mess when it comes to telling a coherent story - and one of the biggest errors it made (in the eyes of many fans) was complicating the villain/antagonist role with Cara Delevingne's Enchantress (and her brother, 'glowing guy'), instead of just focusing on Jared Leto's Joker.
Well, one fan has decided to show DC Films what could've been by doing a Suicide Squad trailer the recuts the film into a more Joker-centric story. Watch it above!
It's still a running contest between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad for title of "most hated DCEU movies of 2016." Suicide Squad tends to have the edge, as it has a lot fewer die-hard supporters than BvS - probably because there's a lot less to love about it, with the waste of a Joker story being one of biggest offenses in the minds of fans.
Well, as you can see above, take the Enchantress storyline out of Suicide Squad and you actually have a much more interesting and streamlined story. Let that be a lesson to DC Films when Suicide Squad 2 rolls around. It's okay not to have a big world-ending, rainbow-colored villain in every comic book movie. A story of assassins, psychos and freaks battling one of their own is perfectly suffiicient.
Suicide Squad 2 will reportedly start filming in 2018.
