Suicide Squad is one of the most ambitious projects for Warner Bros and DC Comics, it assembles a host of DC characters including Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney, Divergent & Water Diviner), Deadshot (Will smith, The Pursuit of Happyness & Seven Pounds), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman, RoboCop & Easy Money) , Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie, The Wolf of Wallstreet), Katana (Karen Fukuhara), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne, Anna Karenina & upcoming Pan), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye- Agbaje), El Diablo (Jay Hernandez), Slipknot (Adam Beach), Amanda Waller (Viola Davis, Prisoners & The Help), Joker (Jared Leto, Mr. Nobody & Dallas Buyers Club) and the Batman. Most of the characters above are from Batman verse from Deadshot to Harley Quinn to Killer Croc to Joker except one “Captain Boomerang” who is a Flash rogue. It has sparked off a speculation that we may briefly see Ezra Miller’s Flash in his origin story, maybe in one of the flashback scenes featuring his transformation from George to Boomerang.
The movie is based on DC Comics conceived by John Ostrander, it is about a group of DC super-villains who are hired by Amanda Waller for a highly classified and dangerous government mission which carries a huge amount of risk. It is very important for the DC camp to knock it out of the park this time if they want to compete with their arch-rival Marvel studios which have almost written off DC Entertainment post-Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But the good news is that Suicide Squad is poised for a massive opening, according to industry insiders it may even surpass Deadpool in overall global box-office collections.
First, everyone thought the big villain is definitely the Joker, then fans thought as there is magic involved in the DC universe, it could be Enchantress. But finally, it’s been revealed that the main villain is “The Adversary”. The producer Andy Horwitz said, “There are multiple adversaries that the Squad has to contend with over the course of the movie of which Joker and Enchantress are one of them.” CHEERS!
