Suicide Squad director James Gunn reveals that the film is equally sad and complicated, and that viewers will not support all of the characters.
James Gunn teased that his upcoming DC Extended Universe (DCEU) movie, Suicide squad, is sad and complicated in equal parts.
“It’s a sad story,” Gunn said. Screen rant during a fixed visit attended by various media. “And one of the funniest things is that I think at the end of the day, even though we did kill Guardians of the Galaxy, we did kill some of them, but in this movie, it’s really about, you don’t know who it is they’re going to get killed.”
Gunn further explained that, in his Guardians of the Galaxy movies, “You start off knowing these are guys who can have different problems, but at the end of the day, they’re all really good people.” However, the director noted that this is not necessarily the case for members of the Suicide Squad.
“That’s not the case with this, it’s a much more complicated story,” shared Gunn. “Some of these characters may end up being good. Some of them are definitely not good. And some of them, most of them are somewhere in the middle with different shades of gray and that moral drama, that moral game. The fact that I don’t know anything about what’s going to happen. “
Gunn’s comments about the duality between the Suicide Squad members came just days after the director also took it upon himself to correct a spelling error in the Ratcatcher 2-related merchandise, which is portrayed in Suicide squad by Daniela Melchior when we have the information.
