Having a bunch of superheroes grouping together, joining forces to defeat the common enemies is quite common. You can see the positive examples from the Avengers or Justice League. But what if it is the super villains that are joining forces and grouping together in dangerous missions? Can you imagine villains like Joker, Harley Quinn, or Deadshot, having to work together in a mission given by the government? Will they even be willing to join and cooperate? That’s the idea of Suicide Squad, a new upcoming movie within DC Comics universe – along with Batman vs Superman and Wonder Woman, among the few.
It should be interesting to see how the villains are going to work together; not to mention that the involved casts will include some of the most well known names in the movie industry. for instance, Will Smith will be playing as Deadshot, Jared Leto as Joker, and Cara Delevingne as Enchantress. There will be also Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Margot Robbie as Harley Wuinn, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adam Beach as Slipknot, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as the Killer Croc. Scott Eastwood, Alex Meraz, Ike Barnholtz, and Raymond Olubawale will also be involved in the movie, but their roles are still mysterious.
The Suicide Squad alone was first created in 1959 by Ross Andru and Robert Kanigher to compete against DC Justice League Superheroes. Bane, Poison Ivy, Deathstroke, Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Killer Frost, and Count Vertigo were the earliest members of the squad. The movie series “Arrow” just recently introduced their own versions of villains group in the latest series. The same thing also happens in Batman: Assault on Arkham animated series recently, where the team is introduced in its own version.
Just recently, the production just wrapped up their process. In case you are interested to watch the movie, the flick should be available in theaters around August the 5th 2016. When introduced during Comic Con San Diego 2015, the trailer got pretty positive feedback and response. After all, Warner Bros and DC have promised that the movie will be as bleak and dark as the comic, and it seems that they have made it so far. The movie is also filled with crazy scenes and moments. For DC fans, this is another cool alternative still related to their beloved DC universe, so it should be promising.
The Suicide Squad, originally set up as Task Force X, is a team of convicted and dangerous super felons who are still considered as assets for the government to do their dirty work. They are sent for secret mission – or black ops, if you prefer – with commuted sentences and punishment as rewards. They are being controlled by Amanda Waller from Belle Reve prison. And how does she control these villains, after all? Simple, she’s being a hardcore too by implementing explosive devices that can be controlled with a remote.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I will definitely watch the movie when it is premiered. Hopefully, it will be as good as the trailer.
