Which of these Suicide Squad quotes is your favorite?
Critics praised the cast and makeup effects.
In fact, the movie won multiple awards across several categories, including an Oscar for Best Makeup and Hairstyling at the 89th Academy Awards.
Suicide Squad was the first film in the DCEU to win an Academy Award.
However, critics felt that the plot, direction, and editing were done poorly.
Leto’s, The Joker, had an unfamiliar look in this installment which included a silver grill and a compilation of tattoos.
He still had his short green hair and pale face, but many people didn’t understand the character’s look.
However, it appears to be a nod to Batman vs Superman.
Jared Leto also never broke character while he was playing The Joker, noting that it was a dark time for him.
Will Smith has even gone as far as saying he never met Leto because he was always The Joker.
I can’t imagine that kind of method acting.
