The new trailer for The Suicide Squad shows Waller trying to force Idris Elba’s Bloodsport to lead his team. Why do you want it so bad?
The new James Gunn’s trailer Suicide squad revealed that Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) won’t take no for an answer when it comes to Bloodsport (Idris Elba) leading the new Task Force X team, but why does Waller need Bloodsport? In David Ayer’s film, Waller entrusted this role to Rick Flag (Joel Kinneman). Rick is still on the list, but this time it seems like he will follow Bloodsport’s orders.
More than the one released in March, the second trailer for Suicide squad highlighted the antihero played by Idris Elba, who has received top billing for the upcoming DCEU movie. In DC Comics, Bloodsport, also known as Robert DuBois, is an extremely skilled and ruthless former soldier known for nearly killing Superman (despite having no real superpowers). Based on what was said in the trailer about his history with the Man of Steel, it would appear that Suicide squad will draw on those elements of his character for his first appearance on the big screen. As shown in the trailer, the DCEU version of Bloodsport will be recruited from prison by Waller, who puts him in charge of Task Force X.

Waller using the impending Bloodsport daughter court case as leverage to make her bend to his will shows how determined she is to make sure he leads the team. This was further evidenced by her comment that she would not take such “Extreme measures“If the mission weren’t so important. However Suicide squad It doesn’t explain about Waller, that’s why you need Bloodsport specifically, especially when you already have a competent soldier in a proud soldier, Rick Flag. It seems likely that Waller’s reasoning for choosing him over all other candidates lies in his abilities.
Why the Suicide Squad needs Bloodsport may have been hinted at in the opening line of the trailer. DuBois was said to have gone to prison for putting Superman in ICU by shooting him with a kryptonite bullet. This line may explain how Luthor knew about Superman’s weakness in Batman v superman and shows the quality of Bloodsport. There is no denying that defeating the Last Son of Krypton is not an easy task, even when Kryptonite is involved. Accomplishing this would have required a considerable amount of strategic planning, particularly when considering all the powers it would have to take into account, including super hearing and super speed. Any powerless character capable of putting someone like Superman in a critical condition is sure to get the attention of all kinds of different people. So with that in mind, it makes sense that this is primarily why Waller insists so much on recruiting him.
For Waller, a character resourceful and cunning enough to find a way to defeat Earth’s most powerful superhero may be the planet’s best hope to overcome the threat they face in The suicide squad. Against the gigantic and destructive creature known as Starro, Bloodsport will need those qualities in abundance to survive and win. A Kryptonite bullet won’t fix this problem, but hopefully it can make proper use of the abilities of your teammates and lead Task Force X to victory.
