Breaking Down Every Character From The Suicide Squad

Birt 24 ágú 2020
The Suicide Squad will feature a slew of new-to-the-silver-screen faces and we've got the scoop on who they are and what they do. Here's a breakdown of every new character in The Suicide Squad roll call.
When Idris Elba's name first cropped up in connection with The Suicide Squad, it was as a reported replacement for Will Smith's Deadshot. Smith, who appeared as the smart-mouthed assassin in David Ayer's Suicide Squad, had to drop out of Gunn's project due to scheduling conflicts. Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment executives may have initially wanted to have Deadshot in the follow-up no matter what, but soon, it was confirmed that Elba wasn't going to take Smith's spot after all. Instead, he'd be playing an entirely different character not yet seen on the silver screen.
DC FanDome confirms that Elba is playing Bloodsport in The Suicide Squad. Three different people have taken on the Bloodsport moniker in the DC comics, but Elba is playing the original: Robert DuBois, who first appeared in print in Superman Vol. 2 #4. DuBois suffers a mental breakdown when he learns that, because he was too scared to fight himself, his brother took his place in the Vietnam War and ended up permanently injured. After one of Lex Luthor's lackeys convinces DuBois that Superman is the person he needs to exact revenge upon, DuBois takes on the name Bloodsport and starts murdering his way through Metropolis with kryptonite bullets, before he's ultimately defeated by Superman.
It's probably unlikely that Elba's Bloodsport will experience this exact arc in The Suicide Squad, but there's a chance that certain elements of it will make their way into the characterization.
Michael Rooker, who played Yondu in the first two films in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, has a plum role in The Suicide Squad as Brian Durlin, a spoiled millionaire who moves to Gotham City in hopes of becoming a vigilante much like Batman. Working under the name Savant, Durlin is turned away from vigilantism by Batman himself. This motivates Savant to become a professional blackmailer going on to do such outrageous acts as kidnapping Black Canary and overthrowing the Gotham mafia with the help of Huntress. At one point in the comics, Savant is even offered a place on the Birds of Prey team.
However, the New 52 comics rebooted Savant in September 2011, and the version of the character seen in that run is almost definitely the one we're getting in The Suicide Squad. The recent comics depict Savant as an extremely amoral, and lethally effective, member of the Suicide Squad.
Polka-Dot Man is a silly-looking villain who's originally an enemy of Batman. Born Abner Krill and originally known as Mr. Polka-Dot, Polka-Dot Man made his print debut in Detective Comics #300. Polka-Dot Man centers his entire modus operandi around spots and dots and acts mostly as a low-level rogue who does all he can to capture Batman's attention and prove he's just as clever and capable as the beloved superhero.

  • Im dying to see Peter Capaldi

  • So Peacemaker is like US Army soldier in mavel

  • im not watching it if they kill pete davidson off

  • The person who actually voices king shark in this movie is Sylvester Stallone

  • I love that they are using some of the really obscure anti-heros!

  • "And then TDK ripped off his own arm and beat him to death with it." "That doesn't seem physically possible." "Yeah, that's what the guy kept screaming." _"AAAAGH THIS DOESN'T SEEM PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE!"_

  • Wtf. Steve agee only played motion capture of King Shark this was known even before it was announced that Stallone would voice him. Next time do your research

  • 8:14 The usual pronunciation of Blackguard is "blaggard," and the term means somebody who's rude, unscrupulous, and foulmouthed.

  • I only see floating helmet in peacemaker hmm...

  • Polka dot man: *Baba yaga*

  • Can't wait to have all these characters introduced then killed off 1 by 1 from stupid decision making.

  • That's an awful lot of characters. Also, I could have sworn that was Man-Bat in the trailers, not Weasel, but whatever.

  • For everyone wondering if Harley will survive she will survive as long as there is no Batman in the movie

  • THATS A GREAT VIDEO . ALSO HEY HAVE YOU BEEN TO THE SALTON SEA ? IN CALIFORNIA ? 20 MILE EATS OF PALM SPRING ? IF NOT WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR COME VISIT YOU WILL FALL INLOVE . LOTS OF SALIMANDERS HERE :p AND DRAGONFLIES AND TOADS AND FROGS AND MUCH MORE :p

  • DC IS TRASH

  • Idk why but king shark is my favorite villain now.

  • Javelin has died in the SS comic. I expect history to repeat itself.

  • But what question is... What's going on with the soldier, captain or whatever his name, he was very serious in the first movie. Now with the trailer he looks like a junkie with a gun.

  • Harley Quinn???

  • Why is peacemaker invisible?

  • 5:05 nope

  • I thought Stallone was voicing king shark?????

  • 7:02 he EMBODIES those ideas huh lmao Btw David Dastmalchian played Abra Kadabra on The Flash too

  • Peacemaker: "I'M A PACIFIST! AND I'LL KILL ANYONE WHO ISN'T!"

  • Mongal went from a tyrant she-hulk sized female godzilla to a pretty small orange girl?

    • Probably my least favorite member of the new suicide squad. She went from awesome to ugly star-Fire.

  • the GOOFIEST villains lmaooooooo, this movie is gonna be a comedy for sureeeeeee

  • Sylvester Stallone is voicing king shark

  • What does silver screen mean?

  • I have never seen such a poor cast of characters ! I can tell a lot of these characters were made on a bathroom brake !! But J. Gunn can make anything cool

  • I know we all love snyder, but what if james gunn left marvel after the guardians vol 3 and becoming head of the dc movies. It would work out really well but its just not gonna happen, shame.

  • GO FLULA

  • Isn't Sylvester Stallone voicing King Shark?

  • ok

  • Nah it acuity voice by rocky actor

  • jesus christ they really scraped the bottom of the barrel for these guys lol, i expect them all to die. savants character pre n52 was way better though and he rocked out with heavily his muscled friend/bodyguard that was also secretly in love with him. kinda sad they didn't keep him as the intelligent but stupid pretty boy he was.

    • the ratcatcher take looks super cool ngl

  • Okay I am sooo excited lmao also my dumbass thought polkadot man was condiment man at first xD

  • I didn't even know that was gondu

  • Hey fleshlight arm boy!

  • Why did you not mention David Dastmalchian plays Kurt in the Ant-man movies??

  • The only characters that will survive is Harley quinn King shark Solsoria ( 50/50 ) Polkadots Ratcatcher Bloodsport Peacemaker Tdk ( 50/50 )

  • Their costumes look hideous

  • What a load of junk.

  • Just gonna point out that this vid forgets Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang are also in there, carried over from the first film - also who's the guy in the orange tshirt with a bunny on it in the trailer? Harley comes up behind him and he tells her they're there to break her out and they had a really good plan?

  • Sylvester Stallone is voicing King Shark.....

  • Sylvester Stalone will play king shark now

  • Ahh, Mongal, that's who she is. I saw the photos before the trailer came out and was like "What's a weirdly buffed Starfire doing with the Suicide Squad?"

  • OMG NOOO THE GUY WITH THE WEIRD SPIKEY HEAD THING _IS_ THE THINKER?!? I thought he was creepy cuz he reminded me of DeVoe, but if there's gonna be a DeVoe, all I can say is... DeNoe. I'm still traumatised by season 4 of The Flash T.T I don't know which Flash villain I'm more traumatised by- Savitar or DeVoe. I really hope Gunn is gonna make this movie hilarious enough for me to not panic ;-;

  • but king shark voiced by sylverster stallone

  • Stab Stab

  • The reminiscent anthropology excitingly delight because cloakroom positionally obtain through a tested anger. empty, efficient almanac
