oh, i'm not criticizing David Ayers, i'm criticizing WB. he didn't order the reshoots, they did. they didn't learn the lesson when everyone criticized MoS for being too mopey, morose and monochrome, not to mention the off-base characterization of Superman, and went full-steam-ahead with the same into BvS. but Suicide Squad gets significant reshoots and rewriting because of positive reaction to the use of Bohemian Rhapsody in conjunction with criticism of BvS, instead of switching gears on Justice League all-together.
But BvS has totally screwed the DC movieverse before it even got started. I can't fathom how WB is comfortable giving Snyder another $250-300 million to ruin Justice League which starts shooting in like 5 days. But they are.
because denial and hubris are powerful things. someone high up in the WB pantheon is so butthurt about how bad their decisions have been that they can't admit going back to the drawing board is a good idea. after three mediocre to awful movies, Sony finally came to their senses and said "hey, maybe we should partner up with a company who knows what the fuck they're doing with these characters..." but it looks like WB is just going to keep driving into the same dreary, monochrome brick wall.
