People use different ways to fulfill their free time with joy and relaxation. Some people would rather decide on outdoor activities like camping. It is always great to spend the weekend in nature and recharge your batteries. Despite that, they would use their free time to see their friends and family members.
However, we sometimes want to be alone and relax at home. Spending time at home can be entertaining. Many people would rather get their laptop, find a good movie, and enjoy in front of the screen. That especially counts when we talk about movie fans. Well, if you are one of them, then we have some good news for you. Believe it or not, the new Suicide Squad movie is going to be released next year. If you enjoyed the “old one” we are sure this news surprised you a lot.
Before Everything – What Is “Old” Suicide Squad?
It is hard to believe that a movie fan hasn’t watched Suicide Squad so far. Only four years ago, it was one of the most popular movies in the world. The creators of the movie managed to earn around 750 million dollars. We are sure that number like that tells a lot about the popularity of their creation.
However, the creation of the movie was not as simple as some people believe. Many mid-production changes were made, and they managed to raise the quality of the movie. It seems that those changes paid off in the end because the movie experienced massive worldwide popularity.
Indeed, the new movie is going to be released next year. However, we finally got some details about it. That is the reason why we want to put all the things we know so far about the new suicide squad movie in one place. We are sure that movie fans would be happy to hear them. Because of that, let’s find them out together!
1. Release Date of the Suicide Squad 2
Dc Extended Universe managed to create a clear vision of their future. They announced that worldwide movie fans can expect seven live-action blockbusters in the next two and a half years. If everything goes well, The Suicide Squad is one of those seven movies. Officially, the release date of the movie is going to be August 6, 2022. The Coronavirus crisis managed to mess up many things in the world. However, it seems that the movie industry has a plan to defeat all the distractions. At least, all movie fans hope that their plan is going to be effective in the end.
2. The Suicide Squad Writer and Director
Here comes an essential part for the worldwide audience. It is impossible to predict how good the movie you are waiting for a long time is going to be. Yet, the writer and director of the movie can give you some insights on the quality you will get. Because of that, we are sure that many movie fans will be happy to hear that James Gunn is the writer and director of The Suicide Squad 2.
Gunn said in one of his interviews that The Suicide Squad 2 is going to be different from any superhero movie ever. His confidence wakes up the excitement among people. Because of that, we are sure that many of us would want to get a time machine and go directly to August 5, 2022.
As he says, the movie will keep the style of John Ostrander’s comic books. However, Gunn is a creative person and a movie geek. It seems that the movie is going to be a mixture of Gunn’s comedic style and sensibility and a gritty ’70s war pic.
The entire project is full of positivity. James Gunn said that making a movie like this brought him many fun and entertaining moments. It doesn’t need to surprise us why he has said that. The Suicide Squad is his first non-Guardians of the Galaxy movie since 2011.
3. Cast and Characters
There is another proof that the movie will be different from anything else we have seen so far. We do not want to say that every character from the previous part won’t exist. However, despite key protagonists, James Gunn invited a large number of individuals with different personalities. We are sure he chose people that will help him achieve the goal he has. The list of characters is long, and we will highlight only the most important ones in the movie.
Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn
Many people say that the involvement of Harley Quinn in the first part was not clear enough. She has been used as a connection with the Joker. However, people that watched the movie know that the Joker was not part of the mission at all. However, that doesn’t mean that she does not deserve to find her self in the second part of The Suicide Squad. She got the chance for her third big-screen appearance. It is hard to say what exactly she will do in the movie. However, there are many images online where you can see that her new look is going to be entertaining.
Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang
We can only guess why James Gunn invited Jai Courtney to help him create an entertaining movie. His energy is probably the number one reason why he got the chance to participate. The only thing that we know is that his look is going to be different now.
Idris Elba as Bloodsport
The fans of comic book movies know very well who Idris Elba is. He is one of those actors that regularly participates in the movies of that type. For instance, he played Heimdal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite that, he was also starring in Ghost Rider: Spirits Of Vengeance. However, Bloodsport is the first character that comes from the DC Comics Canon. We are sure that it is going to be a challenging task for him. Many people already know who Bloodsport is. It is a well-known comic assassin. More precisely, fan lovers know his as a character that shoots Superman with a Kryptonite bullet.
4. Other Characters
As we said, the list of characters is way too long. However, it would be unfair not to mention other characters. For instance, John Cena is going to play as Peacemaker, an antihero that lives by an oxymoronic code. There is also Sean Gunn, who will play as Weasel, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, etc. All these names are famous because of different reasons. We are sure that many comic movie fans are excited and barely wait for August 6, 2022, to come.
