They are the current two biggest projects that have officially given a boost to the DC Cinematic Universe. “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad,” the respective superhero and supervillain ensembles have made their impact and proven a point that they are here to show just how magnanimous a movie can be. We can assume that in future, characters from both the sides will be crossing over into each other’s stories (following the little cameo Batman is going to make in “Suicide Squad”) but what if the heroes and villains were to all collide under one roof in the present. Something on the lines of that happened when the casts of both the movies came together for a picture. Read on for more details.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the hero and villain team collided in a friendly way at the magazine’s Comic-Con photo shoot. After showing the respective footage from their movies at the Hall H, the actors along with directors Zack Snyder and David Ayer moved quickly to get their first ever picture together. Since both the casts did not have their presentation together, this picture proved as an opportunity to meet each other for the first time for many.
Jai Courtney who is playing Captain Boomerang gladly met Jesse Eisenberg, the baddie of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Henry Cavill, on the other hand, was chatting with Will Smith who later on introduced Henry to Jay Hernandez. Girls were not behind because Gal Gadot took a selfie with Cara Delevingne.
It was quite remarkable that Ayer and the team of “Suicide Squad” flew in from Toronto after a long shoot and after a brief halt at the Comic-Con flew back to Toronto to resume the shoot. Cast of “Suicide Squad” were filled with brashness in their attitude while the cast of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” looked more calm and composed when they fondly looked at their extended DC family.
The news outlet also jokingly mentioned that in the DC family, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” is the more mature and older sibling while “Suicide Squad” is more like the bratty little kid. With that being said, both the movies have an equal importance and contribution to the DC Cinematic Universe. It remains to be seen how powerful their impact will be when both the movies release next year.
