Zack Snyder’s aesthetic choices are often blamed by fans for ruining Warner Bros.’ DC universe movies. Now they can claim his tainted touch may have been what cursed the abysmally reviewed Suicide Squad. The film’s writer-director, David Ayer, told Collider that the Batman v Superman helmer directed the brief flashback sequence in which we see Ezra Miller’s Flash capture Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang. The whole thing lasts for a matter of seconds, but required the use of Miller and his elaborate costume, so he was borrowed from the in-production Justice League while Squad was in post. “[W]e just got lucky,” was Ayer’s assessment of the timing, though that may turn out to be one of the only lucky things about the picture.
