From writer/director James Gunn comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ superhero action adventure “The Suicide Squad,” featuring a collection of the most degenerate delinquents in the DC lineup. The Super-Villains have a chance to get out of jail but only by joining the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. With a team made up of Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn, how will this collection of cons work together?
While Gunn is bringing back some of the same characters from Ayer’s “Suicide Squad” (Robbie’s Harley, Jai Courtney’s Boomerang, Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller, and Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag), he’s gone back to the drawing board in terms of the story. He’s also mixing in some new cast members, including Idris Elba (as Robert DuBois, aka Bloodsport), Nathan Fillon (as Floyd Belkin, aka TDK), John Cena (as Christopher Smith/Peacemaker), Alice Braga (as Sol Soria), Pete Davidson (as Richard Hertz, aka Blackguard), and many more.
The plot is centered around the imprisoned convicts from Task Force X as they are sent on a new mission to the South American island of Corto Maltese to destroy Jotunheim, a Nazi-era prison and laboratory that held political prisoners and conducted experiments.
“The Suicide Squad,” like all of Warner Bros.’ 2021 titles, will debut day and date in whatever theaters are open later this summer and on HBO Max for 31 days. The release date is currently set for August 6, 2021.
