The website Birth.Movies.Death published an article on March 31 that a source confirmed that Warner Brothers had given tens of millions of dollars in extra funding to reshoot some scenes in Suicide Squad in order to add humor but it seems to have been an early April Fool's Day joke.
Director David Ayer shot that idea down on April 11 when he Tweeted that the news of a reshoot for humor was nothing but a silly rumor. It does seem, however, that there is a reshoot happening but it is mostly to add more action.

Perhaps as a proof that the production is really in it for the action—or most probably because it was scheduled—four of the worst heroes ever went to the MTV Movie Awards on April 10 not only to wreak havoc or accept an award, but to give the world a preview of the latest official trailer for Suicide Squad. Cara Delevingne, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Will Smith went on stage to introduce the trailer.
We promise, it is not just a combination of the previous two trailers but an awesome, humorous and action-packed two and a half minutes of Suicide Squad goodness complete with The Joker's unsettling laugh. Just the sinister laugh alone already makes us curious and very interested in Jared Leto's performance as The Joker.
The trailer begins with what seems to be a council meeting and a rhetorical question about what will happen and who will stop Superman if he decides to go against the government one day and the Joker's eerie laughter is heard before another classic song plays and, this time, it is Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me."
Just like in the previous trailers, Amada Waller, played by Viola Davis, discloses that she wants to assemble a team of the worst criminals who she believes can do some good. The squad is then assembled— with Deadshot questioning the authorities' sanity— and Harley Quinn making everyone stop in their tracks when she changes her clothes in front of them.
We get to see more of the squad's skills and powers in action, a few Batman shots and, more importantly, we finally get to see more of Leto's take on The Joker. Watch the trailer below.
Suicide Squad will make its way to cinemas on August 5.
