Beware this article contains mild spoilers for Suicide Squad.
Information has begun to leak out about Suicide Squad mere days before its release worldwide. One of the more interesting nuggets of information is that Erza Miller’s Barry Allen, better known as The Flash will show up in the movie. This was a very well kept secret as one of the stars of Suicide Squad, Jai Courtney didn’t even know The Flash would show up until he saw the final cut of the movie.
“It’s funny, because I look back on it and think, ‘ya f***in’ moron, of course that’s what was happening!’ But even shooting that [scene], it didn’t occur to me. It wasn’t so prescriptive in the script. That was a little gem they were keeping, and rightly so, I understand why they’d want to protect that.”
Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, is one of the more anticipated aspects of Suicide Squad, from the footage we’ve seen Courtney appears to have finally found the perfect role for himself. Unsurprisingly Courtney has expressed interest in reprising the role beyond his first appearance.
“It’s not a conversation that I’ve had yet. It’d be dope though, I’d love to. With these properties, and this world, the potential to kind of cross-contaminate is there everywhere. It would be dope to be part of that. I’d love the opportunity.”
Suicide Squad is the next film in the DC Extended Universe following Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Written and directed by David Ayer and the film stars Viola Davis, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz , Scott Eastwood, Cara Delevingne, Adam Beach, and Karen Fukuhara in her feature film debut.
It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
Suicide Squad opens worldwide in 3D, and in 2D, and in select IMAX 3D theaters on August 5, 2016.
