Over the years, superhero movies such as “Avengers,” “Iron Man,” “Captain America,” “X-Men” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” have become such a hit that comic-based movies just keep coming. With the recent announcement of the official cast for the “Suicide Squad,” this has turned everyone’s curiosity as to what and who the Suicide Squad is. And while the Suicide Squad is not as famous as the Avengers or the X-Men, what makes this newly announced DC Marvel film worth watching? Read on to find out.
1. It’s not your ordinary DC Marvel film.
Last Oct. 28, 2014, a list of movies and their respective dates were released during Marvel’s secret event held in El Capitan Theatre, Los Angeles. Now we all know that these films are all about superheroes saving the day, but what makes the “Suicide Squad” worth watching? It’s simply because of the fact that the “Suicide Squad” is NOT your usual superhero-fights-off-the-villain-at-the-end-of-the-day kind of movie. As a matter of fact, the Suicide Squad is a team of super villains. Yes, you guys read that right! The Suicide Squad is a team of death row super villains recruited by the government to take on dangerous missions.
Hired by the government? How and why would the government hire super villains to work for them? Well, as impossible as that may sound, the U.S. government hires villains to take on black-ops dangerous missions, which could cost them their lives, as a way to lighten their sentences. Baddies got to do some community service too, yeah?
2. You can expect a lot of scheming and dangerous scenes.
Super villains are not called as such for no reason. It would be entertaining to see Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Rick Flag, Boomerang and Enchantress fight each other but work together as a team at the same time. Imagine Joker pulling off his tricks but doing this for the common good by taking on suicide missions? Sounds interesting, right?
3. It gives us a perspective on villains.
Given that comic-based movies revolve around the superheroes, we rarely get a glimpse of the lives of the super villains. It’s interesting to watch how super villains think or how these villains would act as a team. It’s also sad that they don’t get credited if they get to save the day because nobody knows who they are and what they’ve done. But if you watch it as it hits theaters, you’ll get a glimpse of the villains risking their lives to save their world and its people. Watching the movie will make you appreciate Joker, Harley Quinn and the rest of the gang. It’s like watching the villains become superheroes even if it’s just for a day.
4. The cast is a team of professional actors and actresses.
The official cast for the “Suicide Squad” movie has been released on Dec. 3, 2014, and it’s a team of professional actors and actresses. Jared Leto will fill in Heath Ledger’s role as the Joker. Award-winning actor Will Smith will play the role of Deadshot. Margot Robbie, known for the movie “The Wolf of Wall Street,” will play Harley Quinn. Tom Hardy will take on the role of Rick Flag, who will play as the group’s noncriminal leader. Jai Courtney will play Boomerang. And to complete the squad is the beautiful Cara Delevingne who will take on the role of Enchantress. David Ayer will be the writer and director of the movie.
