THE SUICIDE SQUAD: James Gunn Makes It Clear That NO Character Is Safe In New Featurette
Another featurette for The Suicide Squad has been released, and it contains even more new footage from the upcoming DC Comics film. Plus, director James Gunn reiterates that no-one is safe from the Reaper.
With a tagline like "Don't Get Too Attached," is it any wonder fans are expecting a lot more than just a couple of characters to meet their maker in The Suicide Squad?
James Gunn has previously indicated that Warner Bros. pretty much gave him the go-ahead to kill as many members of Task Force X off as he felt the need to, and in this new featurette, the director once again makes it very clear that no-one is safe.
The video also contains some exciting new footage of the team in action, so be sure to check it out below, and share your predictions on who will make it out of the film in one piece with us in the comments.
I caught a screening of the movie this past Friday, and it really is something special. Be sure to check back tomorrow for our review.
#TheSuicideSquad - you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll... Puke (yes, I did just paraphrase Wayne's World). What an absolute banger. I honestly have no idea how @JamesGunn pulled off such an utterly insane "superhero" movie, but I'm delighted to report that he very much did.— Mark Cassidy (@RorMachine) July 23, 2021
"Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Bell Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out — even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today's do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin, and everyone's favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese."
"Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave...and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them."
We recently found out that the movie was officially rated R for "strong violence and gore, language throughout, some sexual references, drug use and brief graphic nudity."
The Suicide Squad is set to premiere on HBO Max and in theaters on August 6.
