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.
On successful completion of the mission? You’re a free man.
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.
So, for superhero movie buffs this year just keeps getting better. Till now, we’ve seen runaway hits like Deadpool and Captain America : Civil War and also, somewhat harshly received Batman v Superman & X-Men Apocalypse.
Come August 5th, we’ll bear witness to another such movie from DC Comics, but on paper and through the trailer reveals, this might just turn out to be a very vastly different take on the entire superhero genre.
I mean, it’s kind of weird to even picture bad guys taking centre stage as the leads in a 2 hour plus movie !
Without further ado, lets get down to all that is expected and all that we know about the flick !
1. FIREWORKS AND FIREARMS
Like they say, guns are a man’s favorite toy! The trailers of Suicide Squad stays true to the saying and packs some serious punch in terms of action. Especially weaponry and destruction.
Point in case should be made on that of Will Smith’s Deadshot. Now this guys is badass from head to toe…and not to forget, one of the most dangerous assassins in the world. Apart from the guns, rifles and heavy duty stuff Deadshot shall be wearing his trademarked mask and will also be using his trademarked wrist guns !
it’s the little things like this that matter to the comic book fans who have been hoping for an adaptation of the villainous assassin from the comics.
2. HARLEY QUINN’S ORIGIN
Joker tossed her into the same vat of chemicals that altered his look. The result was unsurprisingly the same; her skim was bleached white and her hair color was permanently changed. The same event will occur in Suicide Squad.
Once out, those two are officially the maniacal couple we both love and hate. We don’t know how much of the two of them we’ll see together in the movie, but hopefully a lot.
And my oh my, isn’t Margot Robbie looking gorgeous! Damn.
3. THE JOKER
Which brings us to, what will perhaps turn out to be the ‘IT’ factor of this movie.
Jared Leto will become the fourth person to play Batman’s greatest enemy on the big screen – following in the footsteps of Caesar Romero, Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger.
To say that Heath Ledger set a yardstick for people dawning the crazy madman’s costume would literally be an understatement. But it’s just a matter of time till we see Jared Leto in character, and well from what we’ve seen of him so far, it looks like he’ll be terrifying.
We know for certain that Ben Affleck’s Batman will have a cameo in the flick. But the exact magnitude of his role in the film still remains shrouded in mystery.
I for one am keeping my fingers crossed on seeing the caped crusader, whom Affleck practically portrayed as a thug in his last outing, kick Joker’s butt !
Guess we just have to wait another week to find out.
5. THE OTHER CHARACTERS
So, we have an insane assassin, a crazed out psychiatrist turned psycho, a crocodile like human, a guy who is good with ropes (WTF ?!) a guy who can shoot fireballs and stuff, another guy who’s good with guns, a sword swinging chick and another with magical powers.
Phew. Things are escalating very quickly indeed !
6. THE SOUNDTRACK
If your adrenaline doesn’t start pumping after hearing the beats of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, then umm…you should perhaps just stick to something else!
The other artistes providing Suicide Squad’s score include the likes of Lil’ Wayne, Imagine Dragons and Wiz Khalifa.
7. THE BAD GUY
Technically the movie is centred around evil doers anyway, but the main adversary to the squad remains yet unknown.
Here’s a possible spoiler though, The Enchantress may plan an important role in this respect!
There you have it folks, feel good to be bad…August 5th onwards !
