Suicide Squad 2: Synopsis
The director of “Guardians of the Galaxy” comes to this second installment of the DC universe trying to give it the recognition that the plot deserves. But of course, how does this story of the bad guys in this company continue.
At first it was thought that this would be a reboot of initial delivery But, to avoid confusion, Gunn himself has repeatedly insisted that this is a separate story from its predecessor.
With this cleared up, how does the Suicide Squad continue? Little is really known so far. The only thing we have is that little fragment that officially released a Warner Bros. executive In an interview:
Welcome to Hell, also known as Belle Reve, the prison with the highest death rate in the United States of America. Where do the worst supervillains serve and who will do anything to get out, even join the super-secret mission in the super-secret project Task Force X… Today’s life and death task? Accompany a select group of convicts including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin, and everyone’s favorite psychopath: Harley Quinn; then give them weapons and drop them (literally) on Corto Maltese’s remote island full of enemies. After walking or through a jungle packed with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search and destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground for them to behave … and with the voice of Amanda Waller. in your ears to track your every move. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If someone wants to make bets, they are all against them, against all of them. ”
The group of villains return to the charge under the same influences that led them to help the state in the past: reduce their jail time in exchange for their work. Now, the group is renamed Task Force X and they will have to fight to destroy a prison and a Nazi laboratory, located in the hisla of Corto Maltés, called Jotunheim (curious nod to Marvel’s ice kingdom).
This location is governed by the General Silvio Luna, a well-known character for comic book fans. Against this general there is a guerrilla band, led by Sol Soria, who will fight to finish him off.
And up to here we can tell you for now, since the directorial cast has made sure that not much more information about the new installment of James Gunn’s Suicide Squad does not transcend.
Trailer for “Suicide Squad 2”
If you’ve been wanting more, you can take a look at the official trailer that Warner Bross herself published a few days ago.
Here we can realize something curious about the new installment. And, as happened with Harley Quinn’s Bird of Prey, it receives the R rating and turn into a movie a lot more adult.
The director himself has stated that this film would be in line with the 70s war movies, something that becomes clearer after seeing this small fragment of the film. So because of the language, behaviors and the presence of much more blood, we are facing a more DC theme than ever, focused on the more mature public.
Distribution of film
Another novelty that this new installment presents are new main characters within the story itself.
We will continue to count on Margot Robbie doing his popular interpretation of Harley Quinn. Accompanying her we will also see Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman and Viola Davis, embodying the Captain Boomerang, Rick Flagg and Viola Davis, respectively.
Some of the new faces in this cast is that of the actor John Cena, which will face the Pacifier, or David Dastmalchian who will play the role of Nathan Fillon.
Another actor that we can see here is Peter Capaldi playing the role of Thinker. In the trailer we can see how it seems that he will work with the squad, but perhaps a little against his will.
To which we will have to saying goodbye is to will smith who, apparently, will not make an appearance this time.
Some more well-known actor names will appear for James Gunn’s Suicide Squad, which we have seen through one of the official posters of the film published on the director’s Instagram.
However, don’t get too fond of these characters. Something very striking about Gunn’s inclusion is that Warner gave him carte blanche to do whatever you want with these during the plot, even kill them. So it’s not clear to us if they will all make it to the end of the movie alive.
When is Suicide Squad 2 released?
This is perhaps the question that all fans of the DC universe are asking at the moment. And it is that this film, as has happened with most of the presentations of the last year, is one of those affected by the situation that we have been experiencing with the pandemic.
Filming began in September 2019 and lasted until March 2020. Then, after hard post-production work, we know that the film will hit the big screen on July 30, 2021. And you can rest assured that Gunn himself recently declared that there was no reason at this point for the release date to vary.
After knowing all the changes that the new Suicide Squad movie will bring, are you as eager to see it as we do? What are your expectations? The truth is that after seeing the success that other works by this director had and that Warner herself gave him carte blanche, we believe that it could be the new great success that DC needs.
