If there’s one major takeaway from this new featurette to “The Suicide Squad,” it is that it will be difficult for audiences to pick a favorite character. Why? Because they’re all so cool. There are some familiar faces returning to a new “Suicide Squad” story, including Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney’s Boomerang and Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag. Courtney, Robbie and Kinnaman discuss the exciting opportunity to bring new nuances to characters they have previously played before, with Robbie especially expressing some excitement at the chance to kick serious ass and especially Courtney describing his character as “the last you will be back at the bar with. ”
Other major highlights from the featurette include new footage of Nathan Fillion as TDK, an antihero whose great power is that his arms and legs form his body, and Kinnaman streams over King Shark, calling him “really stupid” but also “really kind” . ” We also hear from Mayling Ng who plays Mongal. Ng describes her orange-skinned superhero as “just like a super b ****” who only has us more fascinated by seeing her in action. There’s also a very charming moment where we see footage of Ratcatcher 2’s (Daniela Melchior) best friend, who happens to be a very sensitive rat – something that thoroughly freaks out of Idris Elba’s Bloodsport.
Basically, if you want to get a proper taste of the team dynamics between each member of James Gunn’s “The Suicide Squad”, this new clip is required to be shown. And honestly? You want to see if only so you can make sure you’re properly ready on all the character names and backgrounds before “The Suicide Squad” arrives on August 6th.
