The Suicide Squad - the words of James Gunn

Speaking of the film, James Gunn confirmed that The Suicide Squad is inspired to the war films of the 70s, it will have a raw tone but seasoned by the brilliance of the characters and the comic spirit of its films. The director also confirmed that the first source of inspiration for the film is Quella Dirty Dozzina, a cult of the 1976 war cinema directed by Robert Aldrich.

Speaking instead of the characters, the director explained that he considered the possibility of using many of the most famous villains and heroes of the DC Universe but then preferred to remain faithful to the setting of the comic as thought by John Ostrander in the 80s and use lesser known names. The director also says that there is a certain tragic element in those villains who can't even be bad.
