The Suicide Squad writer-director James Gunn has teased that many of the new lineup might not survive until the top of the brand new DC movie, and confirmed that he obtained a “carte blanche” from Warner Bros. to “do what he needed.” The Suicide Squad has a a lot larger effectively, squad, than final time round — 14 have been introduced alongside a few allies with superpowers — and besides Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, the opposite characters haven’t any connection to the DC movie universe. As such, it will possibly simply afford to kill as many because it likes, akin to what Deadpool 2 did with the X-Drive.
Retweeting a brand new journal cowl that includes The Suicide Squad, Gunn wrote late on Saturday: “What two characters do you suppose are most definitely to outlive?” After a fan responded minutes later that Quinn has plot armour and two others are concerned in different DC tasks, Gunn replied: “No character was protected by DC. They gave me carte blanche to do what I needed. That was one of many issues we agreed to earlier than I got here to work for them. I wasn’t on the lookout for shock worth however I needed the viewers to know something may occur. #StoryReignsSupreme”
Gunn later added: “It actually sucks having to inform an actor you are killing a personality they play, particularly in the event that they performed the character in one other movie, or in the event that they did not die in a primary draft. Most of them don’t need to die, however each one I’ve advised has been mature about it.”
