Do you need to see a DC Comics movie before Suicide Squad?

The movie The Suicide Squad of James Gunn shares characters played by the same actors as the version of this team that hit theaters in 2016 directed by David Yesterday. Therefore, it is normal that many people think that you have to see that delivery of the DCEU and keep it fresh in your memory.

But when a fan asked James Gunn by social networks if it was necessary to see the previous version of The Suicide Squad or any other movie of Dc comics, the director gave a very clear answer.

“Do not. You don’t have to have seen any other movie to understand everything in Suicide Squad. “
