Jai Courtney wants to see Captain Boomerang take on The Flash after The Suicide Squad.
While fans will next see Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang in The Suicide Squad, the star recently revealed that he’d like to see a rematch between Digger Harkness and Ezra Miller’s The Flash throughout a whole movie. Although David Ayer’s Suicide Squad wasn’t well received by fans and critics due to Warner Bros. and DC’s interference, one of the most popular elements (Harley Quinn aside) was Courtney’s performance as Captain Boomerang.
The Suicide Squad star Jai Courtney recently spoke to ScreenRant ahead of his next film, Honest Thief, and the outlet asked him whether he’d like to face off against the Scarlet Speedster once again. Fans will remember that Ezra Miller’s The Flash is the reason Captain Boomerang wound up on Task Force X in the first place, so the motivation for a rematch is already there. Take a look at what Courtney said below.
I hope so, man. I hope so. People higher up than me make those decisions, but I think the fans would love that. Who knows, man? Who knows the shape of how things are gonna go. I think there’s a ton of properties being made, and they’re tackling some great success now coming DC’s way. I think they’re making some really good moves. So, we’ll see. That’d be awesome. If it was up to me, I’d have that thing in development already. But we’ll see how we go.
