‘Suicide Squad’ will have good, old fashioned practical effects

If you’re annoyed that CGI and visual effects are becoming too common in superhero movies, Suicide Squad director David Ayer is your new hero.

A few weeks ago he showed off a flamethrower shooting some serious heat, and now he’s given us a behind-the-scenes look at squibs that are rigged for a gunfight.

A squib is a miniature explosive device used to provide pyrotechnic effects in movies. No CGI gun flashes here!

Earlier this week Ayer revealed that he’s putting some last minute touches on his Suicide Squad script. The movie is scheduled to begin shooting next month in Toronto.

PS. I know there are a lot of Suicide Squad rumors going around right now. Since they broke on social media, I’m in “wait and see” mode. I don’t want to share them here and get everyone excited over something that may not be true.
