James Gunn on The Suicide Squad Review Bombing, 'I'll Live'

Ahead of the release for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, a small effort is underway to review-bomb the film before it premieres publicly. But director James Gunn isn’t too worried about it.Review bombing is an act in which groups go to sites with user review features and intentionally leave negative reviews on a film or video game for reasons not necessarily related to the quality of said film or game. This is apparently something that is happening to The Suicide Squad despite it not hitting HBO Max and theaters until this weekend.While it’s not clear exactly why The Suicide Squad is getting review bombed, director James Gunn issued a calm response telling fans, “I’ll live.”I’ll live – stuff like this means nothing in the big picture. (And important to point out most the SnyderCut fans have been supportive, it’s only a few who feel it’s worthwhile spending their time doing stuff like this.)— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) August 3, 2021 https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js“I’ll live – stuff like this means nothing in the big picture. (And important to point out most of the SnyderCut fans have been supportive, it’s only a few who feel it’s worthwhile spending their time doing stuff like this,” Gunn tweeted.There could be a couple of competing factors involved in the review bombing ranging from fans who want to see original director David Ayer continue the Suicide Squad (or at least release his AyerCut of it), to the classic Marvel vs. DC rivalry. And Gunn himself says there are only a few SnyderCut fans who are upset with Gunn’s more light-hearted approach.Either way, you can decide for yourself what review to give it when The Suicide Squad premieres on August 5. [ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2021/06/22/the-suicide-squad-official-trailer-3″]If you’re curious, IGN awarded The Suicide Squad a 9 out of 10 in our review, calling it a “gut-wrenching, gut-busting wild ride and DC’s best film in years.”[poilib element=”accentDivider”]Matt T.M.
