Expected on August 4, 2021 on our screens, “The Suicide Squad” will be both a sequel and a reboot of the film released in 2016. This time, James Gunn is in charge, and he hinted that ‘no character was immune from death.
On August 4, DC’s Suicide Squad will be back on the big screen. Always with Harley Quinn, Captain Boomerang, Rick Flagg or Amanda Waller, but without the director David Ayer replaced by James Gunn for what is presented as both a sequel and a reboot of the previous opus. And we have to believe that the director of Guardians of the Galaxy is planning to sign a deadly film in every sense of the word, if we are to trust the poll he launched on Twitter relaying the cover of the new issue ofEmpire, which brings together its huge cast.
“Who are the two characters who are most likely to survive?”, asks the director, as if to suggest that not many will finish the story in good health. Given the forces involved, the answer seems obvious, because it is difficult to imagine that a Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) passes from life to death. But we can obviously expect surprises: “No character has been protected by DC”James Gunn replies to an Internet user about possible immunity totems. “They gave me free rein to do whatever I wanted. It was one of the things we agreed on before I came to work for them. I wasn’t just looking to shock, but to make the public understand that anything can happen. “
And on this point, we can trust James Gunn, who had not hesitated to kill an important character (Yondu, played by Michael Rooker) in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, after having momentarily made Groot disappear in the first. But perhaps he gave a big clue by specifying that he did not have time to watch the results of his poll, because he was busy on a television series: the spin-off of The Suicide Squad for HBO Max devoted to Peacemaker, played by John Cena, whose filming should begin in early 2021. It can of course be a prequel, and something tells us that the director will not fail to play the card of the mystery to great reinforcement of false tracks until August.
