Re-Introducing The New Suicide Squad

Sean Gunn as Weasel

James Gunn’s brother Sean Gunn will appear in motion-capture as Weasel, a man-sized anthropomorphic weasel. John Monroe aka Weasel was a man who did not perform well in academia, and so took on the costumed identity of a weasel to brutally murder those he believed threatened to take his tenure. He was a student of Martin Stein and the name Weasel was inspired by a nickname others had given him. Along with sharp claws, Weasel also appears to possess superhuman strength and speed.

 

Michael Rooker as Savant

Brian Durlin, also known as Savant, is a self-styled vigilante, a computer hacker who uses most of his skills to blackmail people. The heir to a huge fortune, this genius vigilante is the head of a profitable blackmailing business. Savant appears to experience memory lapses because of his non-linear memory, which is due to a chemical imbalance. In combat, he often wields a pair of batons.

 

Pete Davidson as Blackguard

Richard “Dick” Hertz, also known as Blackguard, is a criminal who uses a special combat suit and equipment for jobs. Initially a small-time thug, he was recruited by the criminal organization, ‘The 1000’, to carry out a number of jobs and operations. He usually wears heavy armour, which allows him to generate a shield and mace made of pure energy. In The Suicide Squad images, however, it looks like Davidson’s Blackguard uses guns, so changes may have been made.

 

Alice Braga as Sol Soria

Sol Soria in The Suicide Squad is the gender-swapped version of Juan Soria. Growing up Juan was obsessed with the Justice League, one day while working at a tech warehouse, an accident caused him to injure his hand. He then injected nanites into his hands, giving him the ability to place his hand against any locked object and make it automatically unlock. He applied but was denied to join the Justice League, probably because his powers weren’t that cool. Distraught and broke, Juan robbed a bank, only to be stopped by the Justice League. Due to his ability to unlock any lock, he was placed in a hole in Belle Reve before being recruited into The Suicide Squad.

We don’t know what happens in the movie but after he completes his Suicide Squad mission in the comics, Killer Croc eats him.

 

Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher 2

The original Ratcatcher is Otis Flannegan an exterminator from Gotham City. During his time at Blackgate, he developed the ability to train and communicate with rats and began controlling an army of small rodents. Ratcatcher 2 could potentially be related to the previous Ratcatcher probably his daughter.

 

Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang

In case you’ve forgotten about Captain Boomerang, because I know I did, he’s back as one of the original members of the Suicide Squad. Jai Courtney stars as George “Digger” Harkness, a notorious Australian criminal that uses a variety of high-tech boomerangs to commit crimes and fight The Flash. He was captured by The Flash after pulling off a string of jewellery heists in Central City. After being sentenced to serve three life sentences, he was forced to join Task Force X. His primary weapons are his bladed and trick boomerangs.

 

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn

Who can forget Margot Robbie’s showstopping Harley Quinn from the previous Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey movie is back. Doctor Harleen Quinzel is a former psychiatrist at Arkham Asylum, operating under the alias Harley Quinn. She fell in love with the Joker while he was her patient and was later made to jump into a vat of chemicals in order to prove her devotion to him. Harley Quinn has no superpowers but is an expert combatant and skilled gymnast. It is said however that the chemicals did give her enhanced physiology in the form of increased strength, agility and durability.
