In a current tweet, James Gunn introduced that his sequel/free reboot of DC’s The Suicide Squad was absolutely accomplished, and that the forged and crew wouldn’t be returning for any reshoots. This initially gave followers hope that they may be capable to see the completed product sooner than anticipated, nevertheless, Gunn has since made it some extent to tell expectant followers that the movie will probably be protecting its August sixth launch date, the place it is going to be launched dually in theaters and on HBO MAX.
With a lot ample time between completion and launch, followers have had little else to do however speculate, particularly about who will survive Gunn’s R-rated anti-hero flick. Described as coming from the “twisted” thoughts of James Gunn and sporting a roster stuffed with primarily D-list villains, the chances do not look eager for this lot, who will seemingly give literal which means to the identify The Suicide Squad.
Weasel (Sean Gunn)
James Gunn is not any stranger to writing nearly unknown comedian characters into his movies after which casting his brother to play them; Rocket Raccoon anybody. Weasel nevertheless has solely appeared inside the pages of DC comics a handful of instances since his first look in 1985, and he’s repeatedly regarded a joke of a villain. Based mostly on the one non-pivotal scene to characteristic Weasel in each Suicide Squad trailers, count on to see this character changed into highway kill pretty early on within the movie. SURVIVAL ODDS: 10,000-1
Blackguard (Pete Davidson)
Whereas a half-man-half-weasel would possibly sound like a joke of a personality, wait till you get a load of Dick Hertz (sure that is his actual identify) performed by SNL alum Pete Davidson. Geared up with twin handguns and a go well with of armor able to producing an power discipline, Blackguard could truthful barely higher than our rodent buddy above, however not by a lot. Based mostly on what we have seen of him, Dick appears overly-confident is his abilities and skills, and his cockiness will probably get him killed on the battlefield early on as he tries to show himself to his extra formidable staff mates. If Blackguard’s destiny wasn’t already sealed, Davidson additionally commented in a current interview that he’ll seem within the Suicide Squad movie for “like a minute,” primarily guaranteeing his destiny. SURVIVAL ODDS: 10,000-1
Javelin (Flula Borg)
I am no soldier, however I am fairly certain that relating to invading a South American nation and taking up stated nation’s military, one ought to carry extra firepower than only a easy observe and discipline prop. Sure, that is proper, Javelin’s one main talent in having the ability to deal with a Javelin like a real Olympian. Followers have been fast to identify Harley Quinn in battle expertly dealing with a javelin like weapon all through the Suicide Squad trailers as properly, and we will solely assume that she picks up the javelin following the dying of its authentic proprietor. SURVIVAL ODDS: 10,000-1
TDK (Nathan Fillion)
The Removable Child, also referred to as Arm-Fall-Off-Boy, has the uncanny energy to, properly, detach is personal limbs and use them as blunt weapons. It’s unclear why staff overseer Amanda Waller thought it could be a good suggestion to carry this man into the fold, and we will solely assume that TDK will find yourself dropping extra components than simply his removable arms when the actual preventing kicks off. SURVIVAL ODDS: 8,000-1
Mongal (Mayling Ng)
Amongst the varied human villains that can compromise the squad’s roster, followers have been fast to note an orange skinned alien girl additionally amongst their ranks. Within the comics, Mongal is an alien warlord who steadily clashes with Superman, and whereas having an alien warlord in your staff does not appear to be a nasty thought per se, Mongal looks as if one other overly cocky character who will meet an early finish. Mongal is featured a number of instances within the movie’s trailers, however most notably in a scene which reveals her trying to take down a chopper, which is promptly seen crashing within the very subsequent scene whereas Mongal holds on with a glance of pure terror plastered on her face. Guess on a firefly explosion to comply with this tailspin and Mongal to be no extra. SURVIVAL ODDS: 7,000-1
Savant (Michael Rooker)
Each incarnation of The Suicide Squad all the time has a member who’s too sensible for their very own good. Anybody keep in mind Slipknot? Whereas Savant is likely to be somewhat extra clever than Slipknot was, he does not appear sensible sufficient to know that Amanda Waller is not bluffing when she guarantees to detonate these little cranium implants every member of the staff will get outfitted with. Savant will probably survive the primary battle, most likely as a result of he is sensible sufficient to keep away from the thickest of the preventing, however one thing tells me that this genius will ultimately attempt to pull a quick one on the staff, and that large mind of his will probably be no extra. SURVIVAL ODDS: 500-1
Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney)
Whereas Captain Boomerang is a well-recognized face amongst a roster of latest characters, the Captain’s probabilities of not returning in a physique bag this time round are usually not excessive. Apart from one scene the place Boomerang seemingly takes off a soldier’s head with one in all his trademark weapons, he’s absent for many of each trailers, main followers to consider that Gunn will kill this character off early in an effort to indicate that nobody is secure. The Captain will be sneaky, so we will not depend him out simply but, however he’s a severe underdog on this suicide outing. SURVIVAL ODDS: 250-1
Col. Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman)
Col. Rick Flag is the one non-criminal and the no nonsense chief of Taskforce X, and it appears that evidently he too will probably be again for one more run with the staff whether or not he likes it or not. Flag appears to have a robust presence all through a lot of the trailer, but in addition appears to be absent throughout a number of the extra climatic motion sequences. Many consider that Flag will meet his destiny in the course of the mission, however can even encourage the surviving staff to go on with out him. One divisive scene even reveals Bloodsport being recognized because the staff chief, however no purpose is given for this impromptu promotion. One conflicting idea nevertheless says that Flag will survive the movie, however will probably be taken out of motion sooner than anticipated when he falls sufferer to the thoughts management of Starro, who we all know to be the movie’s true antagonist. SURVIVAL ODDS: 100-1
Peacemaker (John Cena)
Described as a “douchey Captain America,” by star John Cena, the trailers make it clear that the Peacemaker can have a robust presence within the movie, though the actual query is how far the character will go to realize his objective of world peace. Obsessive about the concept that he can obtain peace on earth, the character makes it clear that he’ll kill males, girls, and kids if that is what it takes. The massive query nevertheless, is will Peacemaker die for his trigger. Whereas this might be a becoming finish for the character, Cena has already signed as much as reprise his position in a spin-off sequence for HBO MAX, though it has but to be confirmed if the sequence will probably be a sequel or a prequel for the character. If one factor is for sure although, it is that if Peacemaker does go than it would certainly be in a splendid, and possibly violent blaze of glory. SURVIVAL ODDS: 75-1
Bloodsport (Idris Elba)
Bloodsport’s declare to fame within the comics is being the person who shot Superman with a kryptonite bullet, and whereas he is nonetheless thought-about a throwaway character, it appears like Bloodsport will act as a secondary chief for Taskforce X. What units Bloodsport aside with a few of his different much less respected staff mates is that he appears to be trying to find some kind of redemption, which he could or could not discover in dying. Viewers have been fast to notice Bloodsports banter with the Ratcatcher, the place he tells her that he’ll get her out alive, which has led many to consider that Bloodsport will probably be laying down his personal life with a view to save hers. Bloodsport continues to be a formidable fighter although, and at the least a number of of those misfits must survive, so do not depend him out too quickly as he could find yourself using out into the sundown with Ratcatcher at his facet, and a military of rats not far behind. SURVIVAL ODDS: 50-1
Ratcatcher (Daniela Melchior)
The one member of the staff to not make a earlier look within the comics, the Ratcatcher’s origins are at this level unknown, with followers debating as as to if her character will probably be a gender swapped model of the unique Ratcatcher character, the originals daughter, or protégée. No matter her origins although, her energy to regulate rats is obvious, and judging by the trailers, this energy is utilized in one of many movies climatic scenes. Whereas there isn’t any doubt that Ratcatcher will make it to the finale, followers have speculated that Ratcatcher will shock everybody and sacrifice herself for Bloodsport, as a substitute of the opposite approach round. Both approach, count on a tragic backstory for this character, however redemption all the identical, and hopefully a second likelihood at life. SURVIVAL ODDS: 25-1
Polka Dot Man (David Dastmalchian)
I do know, you are questioning how a man who calls himself Polka Dot Man may make it to the highest three and never die hilariously early like the remainder of these losers. Apart from the truth that Polka Dot Man makes frequent appearances all through the trailer, followers consider that his over-eagerness to die will result in him paradoxically surviving the complete ordeal. Geared up with a high-tech go well with and polka dots that may be changed into a wide range of devices and weapons, this dorky MacGyver may really show helpful to the mission’s success. Given Gunn’s ironic humorousness, it could appear becoming that he not solely would come with a personality like Polka Dot Man in his movie, but in addition let him survive its entirety whereas so many others perish. SURVIVAL ODDS: 15-1
King Shark (Steve Agee, Voiced by Sylvester Stallone)
Say what you’ll about this half-man-half-shark brute, however King has loved a resurgence in reputation over current years between his appearances on CW’s The Flash, Harley Quinn, and numerous DC Animated movies. All through the trailers, King Shark actually tears males in half, and even appears to stroll off a shotgun blast to the again. Apart from the truth that King Shark will seemingly be a significant supply of comedy all through the movie, he appears virtually unkillable, thus giving him the second highest likelihood of survival. SURVIVAL ODDS: 5-1
Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie)
If one just one particular person may survive a mission to hell and again, it may be Harley Quinn. An extremely competent opponent in her personal proper, Harley’s unmatched bloodlust and insane luck make her a sure-fire factor to stroll away nearly unscathed. Setting apart her character attributes for a second although, Warner Bros. would not of their proper minds ax a personality who holds a lot potential for future tasks. If Harley ever does meet her maker, it is going to be as promised throughout one of many Zach Snyder’s Justice Leaguesequels, and definitely not throughout her tenure as a member of Activity Pressure X.
The Suicide Squad is ready to premiere August sixth in theaters, in addition to HBO MAX.
