“Suicide Squad” — the third film in the DC Films Universe — opened to dismal reviews, accumulating a 26% on the review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes. Though that hasn’t impacted the film’s box office haul, it has affected the cast and crew of the next DC Film: “Justice League.” According to Ezra Miller, who plays the Flash, “Suicide Squad’s” poor critical reception has motivated the “Justice League” cast to bring their best to set.
“You needn’t look any further than the ‘Suicide Squad’ director and cast response to the negative reviews to feel how negative critiques motivate us,” Miller told MTVNews. “Ultimately, we can’t base anything on [the critical response]. As artists, we aim to please absolutely everybody with our work, but we also know that we have to keep expressing ourselves as best as we can express ourselves.”
“Justice League” stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons and J. K. Simmons and opens on November 17, 2017.
