On the subject of WB's DC cinematic disasters, the predicate Suicide Squad train wreck is getting wonderfully shredded by reviewers - the Snydertrash desecration of DC is now at a hilarious 0 for 3, and with an appalling Wonder Woman trailer and laughable Justice League sneak peak, there's no end in sight for this humiliating parade of incompetence :P

Although Zack Snyder is officially an executive producer of Suicide Squad, my understanding is he had basically nothing to do with it.  Early insider reports suggest that to the degree SS was a muddled mess (according to some early reviewers: I haven't seen it yet) that was studio interference specifically in reaction to the reception that BvS got, trying to make it "not that." 

Suicide Squad was a very high risk project to begin with, and not all of the reports during production suggested smooth or even sane production.  Studio interference probably didn't help at all.  But perhaps you should at least consider not just reading the articles written by the people making anti-Zack Snyder Change.org petitions to acquire your facts.  Three to one says you're a frequent reader of the Guardian, since that's the only article I've read so far that tries to pin the blame of Suicide Squad directly on Zack Snyder.

That's crazy talk. Next you'll be saying it's impossible to tell that a character will be properly done from a promo pic.

That trailer was really good.  Steve Trevor, a period war piece, Wonder Woman's origin not relegated to mundanity, Wonder Woman fighting like a boss...

I reiterate: you're nuts.

Agreed.  The Wonder Woman movie, so far, looks Amazing.  But, if it's more Snyder-verse DC it'll probably suck.

Crossing my fingers, though.

He's got the producer's credit on Suicide Watch - his vile stench is all over the final "product".

Actually, he's credited as an "executive producer" not a producer.  Executive producer is often a more honorary title.  Stan Lee has the executive producer title on all the Marvel movies, for example.

The actual producers of Suicide Squad are Charles Roven and Richard Suckle.  Charles Roven produced the three Nolan Batman movies and Man of Steel for Warner and was a logical choice here.  Suckle worked with Roven previously on American Hustle.

And in further WB Suicide Watch news, it now looks like it's not going to be  released in China, which should really help to cripple its box office.

Not sure I would call it an endorsement, but it certainly wouldn't hurt for him to have previous experience with working with Roven and co-producing a critically acclaimed ensemble feature.  That's sort of Warner's default playbook, to get producers with some experience and track record in a similar area working with the talent on the movie.

Just to satisfy my own curiosity, are you unaware facts exist and drive over them like invisible speed bumps, unconcerned about facts and just side swipe them out of your way, or harbor enough hated toward facts you back over them after running them over to make sure you finish the job.

I'm going to go with Option C: Has enough hatred towards facts, but instead of inefficiently backing over them, drives a vehicle with run-flat tires that have nails sticking out of them so that running them over once does the job.

Just returned from Suicide Squad... A few minor issues with the film, but as wrong as BvS was on the characters, this one was so right.

We'd like to believe you, but your claim seems to contradict the formula: everything related to the Supergirl series + 9000 > everything in the universe not specifically mentioned in this formula + 9000 > anything remotely related to Zach Snyder, which is so obvious as to be accepted without proof.
