In a new feature for Suicide Squad, we go behind-the-scenes of the filming of the office fight scene. The scene itself was chaotic and complicated, with lots of action and stunts going on. Every member of the team was fighting someone and the camera took the time to pan to every character at some point, focusing on what was going on with them.
Jai Courtney, who plays Boomerang, says that the filmmakers had to make things so they all matched up. And since there’s so many people in the same shot, everything had to be timed just right.
“They had to design things in a way where, if they were focusing on Croc in this moment, that the fight that Deadshot’s up to in the back of the frame matches exactly when they turn around. And when you’ve got seven or eight people in the room all fighting multiple adversaries, then you can imagine the chaos.”
Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was one of the highlights of the film. According to the actress, the filmmakers allowed the actors to do several stunts on their own, even though they always had a stunt double.
“Ingrid, who’s my stunt double, she’s a real-life badass. She can do anything. But they’re really big advocates for letting us do our own stunts, which is perfect. I didn’t really want to hand Harley over to someone to do half the film, so it was amazing that I got to do a lot of it.”
