Have you not heard? The DC universe is “darker” than its primary-coloured Marvel equivalent. All those who endured the murky sludge that was Batman V Superman will attest that this is literally so. The masters of this universe are, however, keener to stress the spiritual “darkness” at their films’ cores. Is Suicide Squad “dark” in the manner of Endgame or Cries and Whispers? Not so much. Picture a heavy metal bar in suburban Duluth and you’ll get some sense of the generic Goth aesthetic. How creaky is this approach? Do they so lack imagination as to play Sympathy for the Devil over the opening credits? Count on it, sister.
