Recently, in the DC FanDome, the first look of Suicide Squad 2 has been released. It appears as James Gunn has mapped to portray The Dirty Dozen with a blend of humor. Well, according to Joel Kinnaman, the upcoming film would be an intense R-rated movie. That’s quite interesting as it would be Gunn’s first R-rated movie after the decade. Further, WarnerBros has officially announced the premiere of the upcoming film.
David Ayer’s Suicide Squad debuted back in 2016 and received mixed responses for its screenplay and performance. However, this time James Gunn is set to return after giving a blockbuster hit, Joker. In fact, the upcoming sequel is written and directed by James Gunn himself. Thus, you can expect a lot of mischiefs that would take place in Suicide Squad 2.
Suicide Squad 2: James Gunn Will Introduce A New Team
Although DC has decided to redeem the previous mistake by bringing its sequel Suicide Squad 2, it’ll serve as the follow up of its parent film. However. James confirmed that he’d introduce some new team members. Although, our beloved Margot Robbie will return to play Harley Quinn once again. Along with her, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, will also return.
Joel Kinnaman Talked About Humor In The Script
Well, James Gunn’s Joker has hit the screen with its excellent screenplay and a bit of dark humor. In a recent interview, Joel added that James’ script made him laugh. Joel will return to reprise his Rick Flagg’s character. While speaking to THR, he said Suicide Squad 2 would be the most insane film that DC has portrayed so far. Joel continued: “The script is so funny, every page tells a different story that’ll make you laugh.”
Joel went on praising James for his command over his work and genre. He added that James understands the world and has reinvented Suicide Squad with a tint of humor and marketing. But, he has defined each character’s story arc so differently and beautifully that’ll leave you to amaze when you watch it. It’s indeed a heavily R-rated film.
Kinnaman Explains Rick Flagg’s Entry
In the same interview, Kinnaman explained that it hones his entry as Rick Flagg because of Gunn’s comedic skills. Further, the new Rick developed in Suicide Squad 2 is quite different. But, it still holds the same essence that of Rick from the first movie.
No Comparison Between The Two Movies
Joel’s aware of the Suicide Squad’s reputation and how things went on in that movie. However, the actor acknowledges both films. He added it takes more energy to create a sequel and bringing the same insanity second time. Joel further said that there was a lot of energy invested in molding everyone in their character and everything around them in the first movie.
Now, they are doing that again, and he’s happy to return with his team again. Joel added it’s something special to be called as a squad. In fact, there’s no lousy ego in both of the films, as both have their different perspective.
Suicide Squad 2: When To Expect?
As you know, the cast has already returned to play their roles. So, you don’t have to wait a lot to watch the insanity again. Further, DC recently released its midseason lineup. In that, Suicide Squad 2 scheduled to release on August 6, 2021.
