The fact that Suicide Squad has made good collections at the box office suggests that fans are happy with the film, even if critics are not. However, a certain disgruntled Suicide Squad fan was so unhappy, he has decided to take legal action against Warner Bros for “false advertising” after they deleted scenes from the movie that were included in the trailer.
A Reddit user (BlackPanter2016) wrote on the website, “Suicide Squad trailers showcased several specific Joker scenes that I had to pay for the whole movie just so that I can go watch those specific scenes that Warner Bros/DC Comics had advertised in their trailers and TV spots. These scenes are: when Joker banged his head on his car window, when Joker says ‘Let me show you my toys’, when Joker punches the roof of his car, when Joker drops a bomb with his face all messed up and says, ‘Bye bye!’ None of these scenes were in the movie. (sic)”
The angered enthusiast believes he should be entitled to a refund after he drove 300 miles to London to watch the “specific scenes explicitly advertised in TV ads.”
“I drove 300 miles to London to go watch these specific scenes they had explicitly advertised in their TV ads. I wasted a lot of money paying and travelling to go watch this movie because of these specific scenes they had advertised to me. I told the theatre about this unjust act and said ‘I didn’t get what I came here to see, can I have my money back?’ They laughed at me and kicked me out. So I’m now taking this to court. I want my refund, the trauma of being embarrassed as I was being kicked out and people laughing at me for wanting my refund, and also the £160 of fuel money I used to drive to London from Scotland. (sic),” he wrote.
The fan has also started a petition on Change.org for other viewers who want a refund from the filmmakers.
The fan has claimed his case has been accepted and the case begins on August 11.
