As of tomorrow, the highly anticipated DC Comics film, Suicide Squad will finally be hitting theaters as Task Force X is assembled by Amanda Waller in the DC Extended Universe. In a recent interview with Comicbook.com, producer Richard Suckle talked about the fun of seeing this group of super-villains coming together that are all so dysfunctional, while having to do the best they can in teamwork.
“One of the great things is you’re taking characters that are individually bad guys and have their own way in which they go about doing things and saying that they actually got to work together, and a big part of the movie is taking a dysfunctional group and trying to make them functional. That’s part of the fun of it and that’s part of the friction. That’s part of the growing that they grow through as a team.”
“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?”
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, starring Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Jared Leto, Ben Affleck, Cara Delevingne, Common, Viola Davis, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Scott Eastwood, Jai Courtney, Karen Fukuhara, Jay Hernandez and Shailyn Pierre-Dixon, opens in theaters on August 5.
