It seems we must have gotten this information wrong. Until now everyone has been thinking that the “Suicide Squad” was specifically formed to take down the Joker in one of their missions, but it seems there’s someone more vicious than the Evil Prince of Crime who the squad will be taking down together.
According to Heroic Hollywood, there’s one member in the movie that we have seen in the trailer but haven’t seen with the team on any of their missions. This member happens to be Enchantress played by Cara Delevingne. In the movie, June Moon somehow manages to get magical powers and becomes a powerful being called the Enchantress.
If latest rumors are to be believed then with these powers she will try to resurrect her dead brother and in the process put the entire world in danger. It is then that the “Suicide Squad” is asked to take her down. There’s a scene in the trailer when Will Smith’s Deadshot can be heard saying “Let’s go save the world,” chances are that he is referring to their mission of taking her down. Why else would she be missing from the team’s missions? Earlier, reports also suggested that Amanda Waller promises her to help her control the powers that she possesses, but now, steadily the new development has started to make more sense.
If the rumors are indeed true then perhaps the Joker will just have a very small role to play in “Suicide Squad” and that the movie is just going to act as a platform to establish the character.
Comicbook.com reported that a similar basic plotline was used in “Justice League Dark.” In the story Enchantress goes crazy and then the Justice League Dark is formed to take her down. As of now, this in fact seems a very convincing theory but it can only be confirmed once an official announcement is made.
