Suicide Squad Movie Moving Forward
We had heard about the possibility of DC's Super-Villain team being adapted for the screen, now we have confirmation. Suicide Squad WILL happen, and happen sooner rather than later...
Sherlock Holmes producer Dan Lin has revealed to Total Film(via collider) that while a Justice League movie is on hold until the solo movies are made, DC Entertainment have given the villains a chance to shine and moved the Suicide Squad movie up the line..
“[Justice League] is on hold right now as DC sorts out its strategy,” the movie mogul told Collider magazine. “But it seems like they’re building to Justice League instead of going with the team movie first and doing individual movies after that.
“The only other [comic book movie] besides Justice League that I’m working on is the Suicide Squad. That’s a different kind of superhero movie.
“For us that’s a super villain movie. It’s almost Dirty Dozen set in the world of supervillains. That’s the only one for me that’s on the front burner.”
Great news for Squad fans..not so great for anyone expecting a Justice League movie anytime soon. But we already knew that DC were going to focus on the solo movies first, and for me thats a good thing..if only they would reveal some info about them!
As for who we might expect to see in the Suicide Squad movie, well there have been dozens of members and several incarnations of the team over the years. But several members have remained pretty much mainstays, and I would certainly be surprised if they didn't use them. Rick Flag Jr, Amanda Waller(although given her upcoming appearance in Smallville thats debatable), Deadshot and Bronze Tiger. Given that at some point DC want to produce a SGT. Rock movie, they could also tie him into this movie. His squad consisted of Bulldozer, Deadshot, Frank Rock, Havana, Killer Frost(Louise Lincoln), Major Disaster and Modem.
What do you folks think? Which collection of DC rogues would make the best movie Squad? And which actors should play them?
