This has bugged me for a while now, why did they make a Suicide Squad movie?
DC wanted they own Guardian’s of the Galaxy correct? So why Suicide Squad? Why not Teen Titans?
Seriously, Teen titan’s makes a million times more sense. I even have the set up.
Amanda Waller wants a team that can go up again the next superman if they’re evil. She she get Maxwell Lord the create the Titans program. It aim’s the set up a group of teen as a superhero group.
He seeks out and recruits Beast Boy, Cyborg and Raven, as well as Starfire who the government discovered and have as a prisoner. Bruce Wayne, smelling something fish with Lord influences his to also take on Nightwing.
Second act ends with the Titans discovering the truth and abandoning lord and by proxy Waller. Who in retaliation unleashes a very dangerous villain they had locked away on the off chance the Titan’s turned on them.
So you have batman cameo via nightwing, eye candy via starfire, visual effects award chance with BB, oh and it introduces Cyborg to the universe prior to his justice league appearance, thus having 1 less hero to explain.
The real kicker with this one, had they gone with Titans, the second movie… DEATHSTROKE!
