Are You Ready For The Suicide Squad?!

James Gunn's The Suicide Squad

 

The Guardians of the Galaxy films are some of the stand-out moments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Irreverent, funny, full of action, heartfelt, with incredible soundtracks and just a little bit naughty too. Perhaps it is no surprise that director James Gunn is also an accomplished musician and screenwriter.

So, when Disney and Marvel (temporarily) severed ties with him, it was inevitable that DC would step in. The result? A contract to write and direct THE Suicide Squad, featuring a collection of the most degenerate delinquents in the DC line-up.

As Warner Brothers' press release puts it...

Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X.

Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.

Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself).

If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.

With Margot Robbie returning as Harley Quinn and Idris Elba, John Cena, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney and even (Doctor Who) Peter Capaldi onboard, this promises to be an explosive riot of a film - perhaps THE smash hit of 2021!
