    Yeah, just refine the group and change the direction.

    Harley Quinn and Joker can easily do their own thing if need be.

    Yeah, I didn't like the original, but Will Smith, Viola Davis, and Margot Robbie were solid gets who didn't embarrass themselves.

    I say don't even bother rebooting, just charge on with a new mission. Who cares? The Squad lineup changes all the time. Keep a couple of the ones that worked like Deadshot and Harley and Boomerang and just roll. SS was a mess, but the casting was generally fine imo.
    Maybe because he wants to recast Deadshot?

    I mean...okay...but I don't see the point of that. Will Smith was fine. I don't recall reading any criticism that the movie was bad because of him.

    I'm just saying that's why you would reboot it. If he's going to write and direct the movie, he'll want to do things his way.

    Make of it what you will, but some early screening reactions are saying it's hugely ambitious and close to Wonder Woman in terms of quality. Which means nothing for me personally.

    Reading that the suits made for Zachary Levi to wear as Shazam cost upwards of $10 million is the type of thing that makes me not want to see superhero movies anymore.

    That’s everything wrong with modern blockbuster movies, right there.

    Yeah, probably not:

    The film’s costume designer made heads spin when she said that the film requires 10 suits, each costing upwards of $1M. The Hollywood Reporter, however, reports that she may have things wrong with the Zachary Levi lead flick:

    That would be an insane allocation for a movie that has a budget in the $80 million to $90 million range.
    But sources tell Heat Vision that $1 million per suit figure is wildly inflated, particularly as the New Line and Warner Bros. film is being billed as a more modestly budgeted kind of superhero pic. In fact, a source says the Shazam suit is more in the $60,000 to $70,000 range. That’s about $600,000 for 10 suits, which is still noteworthy.

    Well, the money goes to people in the industry who could probably use it, so I'm okay with that. Throwing a bit of that kind of money to screenwriters worth a damn would probably help, though.

    I'm curious what the costs of other superhero suits is in that case. Just never thought of that before.

    I recall reading that the Iron Man suit in the first film cost a million. Could be wrong though.
