THE SUICIDE SQUAD Director Says Fans Are Being "Overly Optimistic" With Their Character Death Predictions

The Suicide Squad director James Gunn has already advised fans not to get too attached to certain Task Force X members, but it sounds like the movie might kill off even more characters than we expected...

We expected to lose a few members of Task Force X before the credits rolled on The Suicide Squad, but it sounds like we might be in for a much bigger bloodbath than anyone could have anticipated.

After previously warning fans not to get too attached to any particular characters in case they end up six feet under, director James Gunn has now indicated that a lot more than a handful of the crew will be killed off.

Responding to a fan on Twitter who shared a link to an article predicting the 7 characters that'll buy the farm, Gunn said that they were being "overly optimistic to say the least."

Surely King Shark is safe, at least? Well...

Gunn might be exaggerating, of course, but it really does sound like we should brace ourselves for some serious carnage.

Who do you think will make it out of The Suicide Squad in one piece? Drop us a comment down below, and check out the recent red-band trailer.

"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."

The Suicide Squad is set to premiere on HBO Max and in theaters on August 6.
