If there was a sequel to The Suicide Squad, these characters would make perfect opponents!
Suicide Squad (2021) has been shown in several countries since August 5, 2021. Unfortunately, we still cannot watch this film in Indonesian cinemas. If we flash back to the first movie Suicide Squad (2016), Amanda Waller assigns a group of criminals and antiheroes, known as Task Force X, to take on the magical Enchantress.
Amanda is now back in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) by running the Task Force X program again in the movie Suicide Squad. In this latest film, Harley Quinn and her gang face a giant starfish-shaped monster named Starro.
If Warner Bros and DC are planning to make a movie Suicide Squad moreover, Which DC character do you think the team formed by Amanda Waller should face?
In addition to directing, James Gunn also serves as a scriptwriter on Suicide Squad. The choice of Starro as the villain in this film is of course Gunn’s decision to write the script. However, in reality, Starro is not Gunn’s first choice character to become a villain in Suicide Squad.
Shortly after Suicide Squad was released, Gunn revealed that he almost made Superman the villain in this film. Gunn’s original idea was for Task Force X to take on Superman who was under someone’s control. Although not aware of this idea, Gunn hopes that the idea of Superman being a villain can be realized in the sequel. Suicide Squad.
The concept of Superman being evil isn’t really new at the DCEU. You can even see a bit of Superman’s cruelty in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Zack Snyder Justice League (2021). The concept of a fight between Suicide Squad and Superman is even used in the game Suicide Squad: Kill Justice League, which will be released in 2022.
Black Adam is certain to debut in the DCEU through his solo film which will be released in July 2022. The interesting fact is, Black Adam almost debuted in Suicide Squad 2. So, before Gunn officially directs the sequel Suicide Squad, Warner Bros. first recruited director Gavin O’Connor to work on this film project.
When the project Suicide Squad 2 Still held by O’Connor, the director plans to present Black Adam as the main villain. So, Task Force X is assigned to find a mass murder weapon which turns out to be Black Adam. But O’Connor withdrew from the project Suicide Squad 2, Black Adam’s plan to become the villain of the Suicide Squad was cancelled.
Since Black Adam also wants to debut through his solo film, there’s nothing wrong with Warner Bros and then reviving the idea of Black Adam as a Suicide Squad villain. Considering that Black Adam is a character who does not hesitate to finish off his opponent, of course he will be the right character to be faced by the Suicide Squad.
Joker does appear in movies Suicide Squad first. However, the total duration of the Joker’s appearance in the film is fairly short. As if the Joker only appears as a character who helps the audience to find out who Harley Quinn is. As a result, not a few fans expressed their disappointment with the depiction of the Joker in Suicide Squad.
Joker’s appearance may be a little disappointing for you, but there’s nothing wrong if this character reappears in the film. Suicide Squad carry on. With a note, the Joker is made into the main villain and the time of his appearance is definitely more than the first film Suicide Squad.
Joker himself can be regarded as a character that cannot be trusted to work with. Even in movies Suicide Squad, Joker does not side with Task Force X at all. Well, the next film can tell how Task Force X chases the Joker who is so cunning and slick. Maybe it would be more exciting if it was spiced up with a fight between the Joker and Harley Quinn.
Warner Bros. once made a film with a “versus” frill, namely Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. After making a “versus” film between two superheroes, there’s nothing wrong if Warner Bros. and DC return to making a “versus” film that pits the superhero team against the supervillain team.
You will definitely agree that a movie about Justice League vs Suicide Squad would be a good concept epic. In fact, director James Gunn has opened up about the potential Justice League vs Suicide Squad.
In an interview, Gunn revealed that a Justice League vs Suicide Squad movie isn’t a bad idea. However, Gunn did not immediately confirm whether he would work on the idea. For those of you who agree with this idea, I hope that Gunn and Warner Bros. can actually work on Justice League vs Suicide Squad.
Brainiac hasn’t debuted in a movie yet live action to date. Brainiac is identical to Superman’s mortal enemy, but there’s nothing wrong with it, if this villain debuts in the sequel. Suicide Squad as the main villain.
As the name suggests, Brainiac has abilities that completely rely on his brain. With his brain, Brainiac can also control other people’s thoughts. Well, this ability will of course make it difficult for Suicide Squad. The story of betrayal between teams can also occur because of Brainiac’s influence. The story of the Suicide Squad against Brainiac is also picked up in the game Suicide Squad: Kill Justice League.
That’s a row of DC characters that the Suicide Squad must face in the next film. Of the five characters above, which one would you like to see as the opponent of the Suicide Squad? Or, are there other characters that you think are better suited to take on this supervillain team?
