It feels good to be bad… The much-anticipated Suicide Squad with its star-studded cast including Will Smith, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie (“The Legend of Tarzan”), is set for cinema release on August 5.
Following a team of the world’s most dangerous Super Villains armed with a powerful arsenal of weapons on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity, the Suicide Squad promises to be a massive hit.
This group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose is interesting to say the least. Here are a few things you might not have known about the Suicide Squad members.
Amanda Waller makes bad things happen to bad people. She puts the infamous Suicide Squad together in order to attempt an impossible mission and decides everyone is expendable when serving the greater good.
As the best Tier One Shooter to come out of the armed forces, Colonel Rick Flag is a military man through and through. Ever suspicious of homegrown cannon Deadshot, Flag is in charge of keeping the Suicide Squad in line.
Possibly the best marksman in the world Deadshot – aka Floyd Lawton –is a stone cold pro that trusts no one and works alone. His only soft spot is his daughter Zoe whom Waller and Flag exploit in order to get the precision gunman to join their dangerous mission.
Evolution seems to be working backwards for Killer Croc. His square jaw, cracked, scaly skin and toothy grin evoke the most fearsome of reptiles, but it’s his skill at surviving and maneuvering in dark, dank, filthy sewers that makes him a deadly foe.
A true master of knots, Slipknot uses elaborate ropes and tackle to create unbreakable and impenetrable traps. He is a trained assassin who can climb just about anything.
Dressed in Samurai-inspired, street-fighter garb and an intimidating facemask, Katana is a force to be reckoned with. Wielding the Soultaker (a large Samurai sword that traps the souls of all its victims) she is both a member of the Suicide Squad and an associate of Colonel Rick Flag helping to keep the others in line.
Violent and incredibly dangerous The Joker is not only Batman’s greatest enemy, but also the love of Harley Quinn’s life. As Arkham Asylum’s most infamous resident he revels in every single moment of the chaos he creates and truly lives up to his unpredictable reputation.
Once this team of despicable bad guys realises they weren’t picked by Waller to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
