Jai Courtney is set to reprise his role as Captain Boomerang in James Gunn’s follow-up to David Ayer’s 2016 film Suicide Squad. Obviously, given that this is a comic book movie, Jai Courtney is putting in some hours training to be in the best shape he can be to bring his character to life, and through this new photo fans can get a hint at how he may look on screen:


In this new photo, which includes the caption, “coupla kangaroos,” Jai Courtney is shown to be training with stuntman Ben Smith-Petersen, whom served as a stunt rigger in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad and looks to be serving as a stunt double for Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang in the sequel.
