The Suicide Squad is just around the corner and we’re speaking with the cast members of the James Gunn flick to talk all about this wild ride. WhenTask Force X is brought to Corto Maltese, the supervillains-cum-Bell-Reve-inmates must trek through the treacherous jungles of the island in order to complete the mission sent by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), or else get their heads blown off by her.
We spoke with Nathan Fillion, Flula Borg, and Jai Courtney about their roles as T.D.K./Cory Pitzner, Javelin/Gunter Braun, and Captain Boomerang/Digger Harkness, respectively. The trio is part of Task Force X and joins Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) on the beach in Corto Maltese for their treacherous mission.
With Fillion, we discussed the creation of his original character T.D.K. and whether or not he had any input in the character creation with James Gunn. With Borg, we discussed his hilarious reaction to being cast in the film after his varied career. And with Courtney, we discussed his return to the Suicide Squad as one of the few characters who has been brought over from David Ayers‘ first film. Of course, we had to ask them who else they would choose to play in this packed film if they could pick anyone! Watch The Beat‘s interview with them below!
The government sends the most dangerous supervillains in the world — Bloodsport (Idris Elba), Peacemaker (John Cena), King Shark (Sylvester Stallone), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and others — to the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Armed with high-tech weapons, they trek through the dangerous jungle on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Col. Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman) on the ground to make them behave.
The Suicide Squad comes to theaters and HBO Max on August 6th!
