Movie Web: A little over a year ago, Warner Bros. unveiled the first trailer for Suicide Squad right alongside a nearly four minute trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. That movie was supposed to kickstart the DC Extended Universe with a bang, and Suicide Squad was supposed to be able to swoop in and be the cherry on top of the whole thing. An added bonus of sorts. Instead, David Ayer and a group of mostly B-list DC Comics super villains were tasked with righting the ship, and saving the DC Comics movie universe from crashing. So how did they do? Much like the characters the movie centers itself on, they have redeeming qualities, but can't be totally redeemed. There's some grey area.
