The Suicide Squad director James Gunn has certainly put in plenty of time to research the team and the individual characters as he claimed during a recent Q&A Instagram session that he read “every single Suicide Squad comic” during pre-production before he even starting work on the film’s script.
“Well before writing Suicide Squad I reread every single Suicide Squad comic,” Gunn said in response to a fan who asked how much research he does before writing the script for a movie.
Based on this comment, it shows Gunn is dedicated, motivated, and passionate about the upcoming sequel/soft reboot of The Suicide Squad and put in plenty of work to brainstorm ideas for stories and character development.
In a separate Instagram Q&A event earlier this month, Gunn assured fans that The Suicide Squad won’t follow the same vein as his Guardians of the Galaxy films regarding the humour and music.
James Gunn is currently directing a cast that includes the returning Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller) as well as new DCEU additions Idris Elba, Peter Capaldi, Alice Braga, Nathan Fillion, Taika Waititi, Jennifer Holland, David Dastmalchian, Joaquín Cosío, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, John Cena, Pete Davidson, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Julio Ruiz, Steve Agee, Michael Rooker, and Sean Gunn.
