The “Suicide Squad” movie is Warner Bros.
This is a movie where the villains are actually the star of the movie.
Will they become as successful as “Guardians of the Galaxy?”
“Guardians” was Marvel’s biggest risk to date.
It was composed of relatively unknown characters and at the same time it was tasked of opening the new, cosmic aspect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But it wasn’t such a big risk when you consider that this is Marvel’s ninth movie.
“Suicide Squad” will only be the third installment for Warner Brothers and the new DC Cinematic Universe.
Yet, they can draw their confidence from Marvel’s greatest weakness.
What Culture points out that the high profile of the Marvel actors and the public contract negotiations are hurting the studio.
In contrast, the Suicide Squad will have the audience holding their breaths: “You know they’re(Marvel heroes) never in peril, because they’re due to appear in more movies still.
That’s what could make Suicide Squad such a refreshing change, because the prospect of characters getting killed off is baked into the concept.
Seriously, the comics are second only to Game Of Thrones in terms of how it revels in killing off beloved characters out of nowhere, conjuring up a sense that anybody could be next.
Obviously the likes of The Joker and Harley Quinn are off-limits, but some of the goofier members of the team – like Captain Boomerang or KGBeast – could kick the bucket, setting up a universe where people actually do die.” That’s a valid point.
Marvel didn’t even have the guts to keep Phil Coulson dead, or Nick Fury for that matter.
Joss Whedon’s tease of death in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” was met with some doubt and indifference since people knew they were under contract for further sequels (whose existence is also a big clue itself).
The comic version of the “Dirty Dozen” is not the first super villain-centric movie as Sony thought of the Sinister Six first.
But it has the potential to be the better one with rumored additions of Lex Luthor and the Joker.
There is no sequel scheduled for the Suicide Squad-at least not yet in the scheduled movies until 2020.
We will see if that will change on August 5, 2016.
