Well we finally got the big cast reveal for the Suicide Squad, and they look pretty good in my opinion. We won’t really know how they turned out until we see them on screen, but they are very close to their New 52 counter parts. They are as follows from left to right: Adam Beach rumored to be Slipknot (not the band), Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, in front of Cara is Karen Fukuhara as Katana, back up to Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, and last but not least Jay Hernandez as El Diablo (well maybe least, in the running with Slipknot anyway). Plus just for kicks here are Will Smith’s Deadshot and Jared Leto’s Joker in their full garb:
Now that we know the cast the fun part is to try and figure out who will die! This is the Suicide Squad after all, and if they are going to do the comics any justice at all at least three of these people will not make it out alive.
Poor El Diablo doesn’t stand a chance. He dies in every version of the comic book. He is as good as dead. Next up I am going with Katana. Sure she is not a villain, so you would think the heroes make it through, but you would be wrong. She is donezo. The last for sure one to go is Slipknot. Adam Beach is a great actor, but the fact we don’t even know if he is Slipknot, plus the fact I had to look up who Slipknot is, means he is dead in the first thirty minutes. My last prediction is that Rick Flagg will not make it. Again a hero, but the Suicide Squad belongs to Deadshot, so it can’t have two leaders. If Tom Hardy had still been in the movie, he would have lived. Now that it is Joel Kinnaman, Dead.
As for the rest of the cast, I am not sure Enchantress or Killer Croc can physically die, and Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, The Joker, and Harley Quinn are way to popular to kill off, especially in the first movie. We will see of course, but I am pretty sure they are all safe. I hope this movie is fun. Because even though the Suicide Squad Comic is dark and violent, it is always very funny too. So here is hoping!
