Fresh images from James Gunn's The Suicide Squad have arrived, and they show two very different teams embarking on an unknown mission.
New images from James Gunn's The Suicide Squad show two very different teams on an unknown mission. Gunn's semi-reboot, semi-sequel is one of the most anticipated DC projects on the horizon. While not necessarily being connected to David Ayer's 2016 Suicide Squad, a handful of characters will make the jump from the first film to the second. Beyond that, The Suicide Squad will be made up of entirely new faces, most of which were revealed at DC FanDome in August. Plot details are still being kept under wraps, but one thing is clear: People will die.
During DC FanDome, Gunn unveiled a special behind the scenes look at The Suicide Squad. The video teased a mission that's akin to a war movie, suggesting there will be some serious carnage. Despite that, though, several cast members have promised The Suicide Squad will be very funny, with returning player Joel Kinnaman even saying the script had him laughing out loud. With Gunn behind the camera, fans are excited to see what The Suicide Squad will become.
Now, thanks to Empire, they have a new glimpse of what the movie itself will look like. Hot on the heels of a colorful all-cast photo, the magazine has unveiled two new images from The Suicide Squad, each showcasing a different team. The first simply features Polka Dot Man (David Dastmalchian), Peacemaker (John Cena), Bloodsport (Idris Elba), and Ratcatcher II (Daniela Melchior). The second has far more characters, including Savant (Michael Rooker), Kinnaman's Rick Flag, Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Javelin (Flula Borg), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), and Mongal (Mayling Ng). Check out the pictures down below.
At first glance, it appears The Suicide Squad may feature multiple teams. The quartet included in the first image don't seem to be with the rest of the group on the plane, which raises questions as to where they are. It's likely they have split off from the main Suicide Squad, though it remains to be seen if this is part of the plan, or if the anti-heroes have gone rogue. With a team like the Suicide Squad, it's hard to say whether everyone is actually working for the greater good, or if they're being driven by their own motivations.
Either way, Gunn has promised a high body count within The Suicide Squad, and with a roster as long as the one featured in the film, it's all but guaranteed that not everyone will get along. The mission that the Squad embarks on still hasn't been revealed, but fans are quite curious to discover what it is. Perhaps Gunn will be willing to share more plot details in the coming months.
