The Suicide Squad features two character deaths that make essayist/chief James Gunn cry. Following Gunn’s short departure from Disney after a batch of controversial tweets were unearthed, Warner Bros. immediately dipped in to recruit the in-demand chief, giving him carte blanche to work with any DC property of his decision. Gunn chose a passion project, for example The Suicide Squad, a film about DC’s team of supervillains who undertake high-hazard black operations missions in exchange for drove jail sentences, notwithstanding David Ayer’s troublesome take releasing only a couple years earlier.
Indeed, even before Gunn began recording The Suicide Squad, the filmmaker was speedy to remind audiences not to get excessively attached to any characters given the nature of the titular team. Presently, at a new press occasion, Gunn talked about how he chose what characters to kill off and revealed there are two explicit deaths in the film that pull at his heartstrings and even make him shed a couple of tears. Read Gunn’s full statement, per ComicBook beneath:
A portion of the characters, especially as you go further into the film and a portion of the deaths later in the film actually break my heart each time I watch. There’s two characters in particular that when they kick the bucket, I actually get teary-looked at each time I watch the film, in any event, when I’m watching those scenes altered, when I was going through them. It still really kills me.
The most popular fan hypothesis proposes there will be two separate waves of Task Force X, the first has been named the Red Team and will be dropped onto the island via helicopter. This team incorporates Javelin (Flula Borg), Mongal (Mayling Ng), and Blackguard (Pete Davidson) and they are required to bite the dust rather early, given they haven’t been featured especially during the film’s marketing campaign. It’s impossible these are the tear-snapping deaths Gunn is alluding to, considering he says they happen later in the film, yet all will be revealed soon enough when The Suicide Squad releases on August 6.
