Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?
Strap on your boots the Suicide Squad trailer is out.
The plot for the movie hasn’t been revealed yet but we’re assuming that it’s going to be following the same plot as the comic book.
Task Force X, created by the government and a sassy Viola Davis, compromises of a team of ‘supervillians’ currently under custody of the United States government. The team undertakes high-risk missions for the government in exchange for amnesty and jail time reduction. But if they fail or cause trouble they can be eliminated via micro bombs implanted inside them.
For those of you that don’t know who’s going to be making up the members of the Suicide Squad, I think a round of introductions are in order.
The character that I personally can’t wait to see played by Margot Robbie. It looks like she’s the character down pat as ex-psychiatrist at the Arkham Asylum, Dr. Harleen Quinzel, who was corrupted by The Joker and went on to be his assistant/girlfriend.
Otherwise known as the 4th Joker, played this time by Jared Leto. We haven’t got too much to go on, on his role in the film but what we do know is that The Joker has been thrown down a hole and left there, courtesy of a Ms. Viola Davis, playing government agent Amanda Waller.
A normal teenage girl possessed by a demon. June Moore played by Cara Delevingne can transform into black-haired, costumed hero with magical abilities whenever she says the word ‘Enchantress’. They mentioned she was possessed by a witch in the trailer, so we’ll just have to see how that story pans out.
Floyd Lawton, codename Deadshot, infamous across the DC Universe as the most notorious assassin, he’s never missed a target. Will Smith looks like a good fit for the role and he looks great in full costume, complete with the iconic cybernetic eye-piece.
Definitely the team’s heavy on any mission, Killer Croc played by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. He’s widely known Batman, identified by his reptile-like skin and accompanying teeth and claws also he’s incredibly strong and likes to eat people.
As far as supervillians go Captain Boomerang somehow lacks luster next to his companions. Hailing from Australia (surprise surprise), Captain Boomerang as his name suggests is skilled at throwing a boomerang. His character is played by Jai Courtney that fairly douchebagy guy from Divergent.
Rila Fukushima plays the incredible skilled Katana, efficient and deadly with a sword and in hand to hand combat. We’ve seen her in Arrow, but she’s hardly the ‘supervillian’ type so I’m looking forward to delve into that backstory.
Pyromania’s the name of the game here with ex-con Chato Santana who has the ability to shoot fire out of his palms. It’s said that his powers come from a man named Lazarus Lane who was nearly killed, but revived by a Native American Shaman.
Suicide Squad will be releasing on August 5th by DC and Atlas Entertainment.
