The suicide squad is a highly anticipated project in the DC universe from the mind of James Gunn. Recent trailers have shown that this is not a family-friendly project. Gunn seems to have been unleashed as there are a lot of shots of bloody deaths and swearing characters in this sneak peek footage. As the movie is called The suicide squad, there will certainly be many cast members who will not make it to the end of their mission. According to Gunn himself, cast members who were not going to make it were immediately aware of it.
In a tweet on May 19, James Gunn stated, “Anyone who was murdered The suicide squad knew it when they got the script or for new actors when they were offered the part. “
The suicide squad has an incredible cast of famous actors for obscure characters. Many of the highlights include John Cena as Peacemaker, Idris Elba as Bloodsport, Michael Rooker as Brian Durlin, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, David Mastalchianas Polka-Dot Man, Sean Gunn as Weasel, and Pete Davidson as Blackguard. Sylvester Stallone has also been confirmed as the voice of King Shark, who looks hilarious from the trailers.
In the DC comics, the Suicide Squad is a group of villains who are recruited to go on extremely dangerous missions, so the government can basically wash their hands if something goes wrong. If at any point the bad guys refuse, Waller can blow them up with an explosive in their heads. The group changes, but often involves characters like Harley Quinn and Deadshot.
This post is a strange reboot / sequel hybrid to 2016 Suicide Squad. It won’t carry the story from that movie, but there are some returning characters, including Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.
Robbie fell into the spotlight with her portrayal of Quinn in the 2016 film and this will mark her character’s third appearance, that of Birds of prey. However, as far as we know, Jared Leto’s Joker will not go with her in this movie.
Outside of Guardians of the Universe, Gunn has been involved in a number of bloody movies, including Super, a superhero satire film with some brutal graphic violence. With The suicide squad with an R rating, the public may see some famous stars undergoing some incredibly gory deaths. They can also come at totally unexpected moments, so don’t get too attached to the characters in this movie.
There are some characters who are unlikely to be killed in this movie, mainly Robbie’s Harley Quinn, but who really know. Gunn is also involved in the upcoming Peacekeeper series for HBO Max, in which John Cena also returns in the lead role. The series explores the origins of these characters, so Cena’s Peacemaker could still come to an end in this movie.
After many fans and critics felt disappointed in 2016 Suicide Squad, many hope that a talented filmmaker like Gunn can deliver the bloody action they expect with some wacky characters in The suicide squad. The suicide squad premieres in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6, so start predicting who’s going to bite the dust until then.
