I’m sure many of us are familiar with comic book heroes. Even those who have never flipped through the pages of comic books know a name or two because of movies or TV series franchises. We have had the series of Avengers movies, Thor, Captain America, Batman vs. Superman etc. So many amazing films based on incredible comic heroic stories. One particular film that’s about to be released and is based on the DC Comics’ universe is called Suicide Squad. What makes this film unique is that it’s an antihero film. You can search Suicide Squad online and get a glimpse of the spectacular trailer of the movie. It’s a good break from the usual hero themed movies. Wherein typical good guys get all the limelight and the bad guys get thrown in jail.
Giving Misfits A Second Chance
Suicide Squad brings together a group of misfits, as some would call them, outcasts of society that have caused terror in the lives of citizens. In the movie, these strange and menacing individuals are brought together to work on missions that are beyond human capabilities. It goes against the normal notion one would have about heroes and/or crime fighters. But it also provides a great story for people. It’s not often you get to witness all sorts of interesting characters grouped together. After all, as some would say, everyone deserves a second chance and why should this group of people be denied of it.Not only that, but you are also provided with a different perspective which more often than not tickles the mind.
Familiar Faces To Look Out For
You see multiple familiar characters in this film. There’s Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Enchantress, Batman and so many more. I won’t divulge too much on what these incredible and complex characters do in the movie as I will leave that for you to discover when you watch the film. One thing to watch out for in the movie is how these different personalities interact with each other. Obviously, these people come from different walks of life and have different personal issues they deal with. Most fans are eager to see how Harley Quinn and Joker on the big screen as both characters have an intertwining history together.
Leto’s Journey To Be Joker
It has been revealed that Jared Leto, who plays Joker in the film, used method acting for his role. Apparently, he has never broken character throughout the filming progress. Will Smith, who plays Deadshot, has said that he never got to meet Leto throughout the filming progress. This goes to show the dedication that Leto has worked into weaving his own Joker for the film. Joker’s character, arguably, is a complex of supervillain. Reportedly, Leto prepared for his role by spending time with real life psychopaths and doctors to prepare for the role. David Ayer, the director of the movie, added tattoos on the Joker’s look to give the character a more modern feel.
Anticipating Waller’s Character
Amanda Waller, the character that Viola Davis plays in the movie, is the reason why the whole squad was brought together. Her character provides a breath of fresh air as Waller appears to be someone who is tough and unafraid to use any means necessary to take down enemies. I doubt it’s easy for her character to be working in a male dominated industry. To assert her own ideas and be firm amongst male colleagues who probably think they are better than her would be something interesting to see play out on screen.
Possible Chaotic Fun On Screen
It is through Waller that this group of supervillains is tasked to take on high profile missions in exchange for amnesty. The squad not only works together as supervillains but they must learn to work alongside people that may have prejudices against them. One would imagine it to be a rather chaotic band of people. A little chaos would be fun don’t you think?
With so many characters coming to life and this being based from the DC comics’ universe, I think it is safe to say that we can expect this movie to be action pack. One thing to remember before coming to the theater to watch Suicide Squad is to expect the unexpected. It will be interesting to see things in the perspective of these supervillains.
