There is plenty to feast your eyes on in this behind-the-scenes look at The Suicide Squad. One of the most notable things we need to discuss is the look of this movie. During the footage reveal, producer Peter Safran shares, “This one is completely unique. This is a gritty, 1970s war movie combined with the brilliance of James Gunn’s characters and comedy,” and he’s not wrong! As Safran speaks, we get an eyeful of footage from the set, which includes a shot of Captain Boomerang (Courtney) throwing his iconic boomerangs (which now glow!), Harley Quinn (Robbie) happily wielding a missile-launcher, a look at Kinnaman’s new version of Rick Flagg, Rooker as Savant, and Fillion as T.D.K., a.k.a. The Detachable Kid. It’s unclear how the “’70s war movie” vibe will specifically tie into the plot of The Suicide Squad with no specific plot details revealed, but it feels like a viable, interesting direction for this story which boasts such a huge cast.
Additionally, the costumes for each Suicide Squad cast member is brighter, more eye-grabbing, and somehow way more nostalgic than you might expect, too. And if the costumes don’t grab your attention, then maybe all of the explosions, fights, and slow-motion shots of various cast members walking around the incredible sets will. It’s clear Gunn is going to be bringing a lot of new ideas to the table and the cast is more than ready to make them a reality.
