Superman Was Almost The Bad Guy In ‘The Suicide Squad’

The Suicide Squad director James Gunn says his movie almost featured the Man of Steel – as the bad guy. Appearing on the Script Apart podcast, Gunn revealed that his original idea for the movie was to have the team fight Superman – which he believes would be “a very interesting story”. But he ultimately decided to have the team do battle with Starro the Conqueror – a monster he describes as “the perfect comic book character… absolutely ludicrous but he’s also very scary in his own way”. Did Gunn make the right choice not having Superman be a villain? What’s the best DCEU movie?
