Thanks to the middling reception the aforementioned DC film received, it was speculated that Warner Bros were worried about the quality of the film.
However, not long after the reports made international headlines, director David Ayer said the “reshoots for humour” rumours were “silly” and they actually intended to add more action.
While the past trailers for the film have played up the film’s humour, these new TV spots once again pushing the film’s funny side, Will Smith’s dry humour taking centre stage.
The film was recently rated PG-13, much to the disappointment of some fans hoping it would follow in Deadpool’s footsteps and be R-Rated.
Suicide Squad hits cinemas 5 August.
