After assembling Task Force X for the cover of its latest issue, Empire Online has now shared two brand new images from James Gunn’s DC supervillain ensemble The Suicide Squad, which you can find here…
Meanwhile, speaking to the outlet, Gunn has also explained how his Task Force X differs from another “bunch of A-holes” that he’s previously put together in the Guardians of the Galaxy:
“I think you know, from pretty close to the beginning, that all of the Guardians are good – apart from Nebula, who’s the outlier,” Gunn explains. “But in The Suicide Squad, some of the characters end up being good, some end up being terrible. They don’t just get in fights and say they’re going to kill each other, they actually do get in fights and kill each other. You really don’t know who’s going to live and who’s going to die. I was given full freedom to kill anyone – and I mean anyone – by DC.”
We’re certainly expecting a high body count in The Suicide Squad, with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn the only character who seems all but guaranteed to make it to the end credits.
The Suicide Squad sees James Gunn directing a cast that includes Suicide Squad returnees 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.
