The Suicide Squad - Suicide Mission: Behind the Scenes Video Released

The Suicide Squad - Suicide Mission

The Twitter account of the movie The Suicide Squad, written and directed by James Gunn, which will arrive in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6, has released a behind-the-scenes video that reveals some details about the characters of the film. >
As we all know, David Ayer's 2016 Suicide Squad sequel stars characters from the first film, including Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn and Jai Courtney's Captain Boomerang, along with new villains and anti-heroes like the Peacemaker by John Cena, Joel Kinnaman's Rick Flag and Elba's Robert DuBois, aka Bloodsport. Now, as James Gunn has total creative control of all these characters, it's interesting to see them all together in this video showing the quirky ensemble of The Suicide Squad - Suicide Mission.

The Suicide Squad - Suicide Mission: the characters complete

In the new video published on the official Twitter account of The Suicide Squad - Suicide Mission, James Gunn reveals that he is thrilled to be able to introduce a flood of often overlooked characters and reveals some more details about the actors playing Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Harley Quinn, King Shark, Polka Dot Man, Ratcatcher 2, Mongal, Captain Boomerang, Rick Flag, Blackguard, Savant, TDK and Javelin.

As for the characters that are presented to us in the video there are also two DC villains briefly shown as prisoners inside Belle Reve. One appears to be a version of The Flash's villain, Double Down, and the other is Batman's villain, Calendar Man (Sean Gunn).

James Gunn also promises that the film will feature a lot of victims, making it a no-nonsense film, which is facilitated by the fact that most of the protagonists are misfits. The overall relationships between the characters are still a mystery. The first Suicide Squad film had been criticized for its lack of risk but at least that the fans won't have to worry about given the promises of the director.

In short, The Suicide Squad - Suicide Mission promises to give life to a mad, profane and unpredictable race filled with characters who are loved and hated, or a little of both. Expectations are high at this point. We just have to see if the promises will be kept.

This is the synopsis of the film:

Welcome to hell, that is to Belle Reve, the prison with the highest death rate in the States United, where the worst supervillains are locked up, who will do anything to get out - even join the super secret and dark Task Force X. Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and the most beloved psychopath of all, Harley Quinn. Then arm themselves heavily and drop (literally) on the remote island of Corto Maltese, full of enemies. Venturing into a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerilla forces, the Squad will be involved in a search and destruction mission, under the leadership of Colonel Rick Flag on the territory ... and the directives of the tech experts of Amanda Waller's government in the ears, who they follow their every move. And as always, with every false move they risk death (at the hands of their opponents, a teammate or Waller herself). If you want to bet on it, the payoff is against them.

James Gunn Further Explains Why The Suicide Squad Didn’t Include Jared Leto’s Joker

The movies are officially back, with studios releasing long-awaited blockbusters this summer for the big screen. One of the most highly anticipated of these projects is James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, with the Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker making his DC debut in the R-rated movie. And Gunn recently went into more detail about why the movie didn’t include Jared Leto’s Joker.

The Suicide Squad is an interesting project because its a sequel/reboot to David Ayer’s 2017 original. That movie featured the debut of Jared Leto’s Joker, although much of his footage was left on the cutting room floor. Gunn previously gave one reason why Mr. J wasn’t included in his movie, and he’s expanded his thoughts, saying:

I just don’t know why Joker would be in the Suicide Squad. He wouldn’t be helpful in that type of war situation.

Well, that was simple. It looks like Amanda Waller simply wouldn’t have a reason to include Jared Leto’s Joker in the mission for James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. And as such, the Clown Prince of Crime was once again left out of a new installment of the DC Extended Universe.

James Gunn’s comments come from an interview with The New York Times ahead of the release of The Suicide Squad. The visionary filmmaker opened up about his career and experience joining the DCEU for the first time. And while Gunn assembled a massive cast of familiar faces to bring his version of Task Force X together, he simply had no use for Jared Leto’s Joker.

As it hits theaters, The Suicide Squad will also be available on HBO Max. You can use this link to sign up for the streaming service.

Prior to this new interview, James Gunn cited DC comics for Joker’s absence in The Suicide Squad. Because while Harley has been on Task Force X for years, Batman’s arch nemesis isn’t really a team player. And considering Gunn was putting the movie’s villains into a literal war zone, it didn’t make sense to have Jared Leto back to reprise his role.

As previously mentioned, Jared Leto had a somewhat controversial presence in David Ayer’s original Suicide Squad. Some criticized his performance, although Ayer has been open about how Warner Bros. eviscerated his original vision and cut most of Joker’s scenes. Leto eventually reprised his role for the Snyder Cut’s Knightmare sequence, but hasn’t had a meaty role in a DC movie since.

The Suicide Squad is currently set to arrive in theaters on August 6th. In the meantime, check out the 2021 movie release dates to plan your next movie experience.
