One of the most obvious choices is multiple Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow. She has great experience blending tense drama with gritty, realistic action sequences. One of the biggest problems with Suicide Squad was how the tone never quite fit the story. The drama and the action sequences felt like two very different creatures battling for the audience’s attention, but instead just dividing it. Bigelow also has experience developing strong female characters, which Suicide Squad is in desperate need of. The biggest disconnect between the DC films and Marvel is their approach. Marvel is embracing the campy, comic book tone that blends humor with drama. DC’s approach is much different as they try to channel a Nolan-esque vibe while stylistically vamping the visuals up so that it looks like a graphic novel, but feels like a serious drama. Bigelow can add the realistic feel that DC is trying to go for while keeping a visual style that allows the film to walk the line between comic book and reality.
