Javelin actor Flula Borg is ecstatic after seeing James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
Recently, members of the cast and crew got a chance to see James Gunn’s new DC Extended Universe film at an early screening roughly two months from when it premieres. Actress Storm Reid recently tweeted her enthusiastic reaction to the film, and now castmember Flula Borg is the latest to sing James Gunn’s praises now that he’s seen the finished product.
The Javelin actor took to Twitter to share his reaction. Based on his excitement, it’s safe to say that DC may have something special for audiences this coming August:
*GENIUS creation scheisse (no genies in the film, sorry fans of barbara eden)

Flula Borg’s Javelin is one of many obscure characters from DC Comics that James Gunn is bringing to life in his new film. Javelin was first introduced in Green Lantern #173 in February 1984.
Are you excited to see how Javelin gets involved in the action? Sound off in the comments below.
Here is the synopsis for The Suicide Squad:
Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle 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.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, Michael Rooker, and Sylvester Stallone.
