One of the biggest complaints about “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” from critics and comics fans alike is that it’s simply too miserable. The Zack Snyder-directed blockbuster is missing the fun element that draws readers to the comic books and masses to Marvel’s lighter-toned movies like “The Avengers” and “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Now the studio behind “Batman v Superman,” Warner Bros., is reportedly trying to remedy the problem for its future comic-book movies.

According to Birth. Movies. Death., the studio has requested reshoots of its summer DC Comics adaptation, “Suicide Squad,” that would give the film a playfulness that fans reacted positively to in its trailer.

Turns out, all the jokes that are in the movie have already been revealed in the trailer, according to Birth. Movies. Death.

This might not mean you’re going to see cast members Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto throw out one-liners, but it’s likely director David Ayer is going to shoot some more fun interactions among the characters to give viewers more chances to giggle than they did while watching “Batman v Superman.”

“Suicide Squad” opens in theatres August 5.
