This news basically means that we can’t get too attached to any characters in this upcoming DC Comics movie.
It was to be expected and Gunn had already been saying things similar to this about his movie in the past.
However, hearing him say that “almost everyone will die” in The Suicide Squad does still come, to me at least, as a bit of a shock.
I suppose it is called ‘The Suicide Squad‘ after all, so this was to be expected.
Gunn said this via his Instagram account.
He was responding to fans’ questions on Instagram using Stories, and one of the questions was:
How many characters are gonna die in Suicide Squad?
To which Gunn answered:
Almost all of them.
Looks like everyone’s going to die in The Suicide Squad… well, almost
That’s a pretty definite response.
However, I do believe there’s one character who’s going to be safe in this movie.
That’s Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn.
Everyone else is fair game and may very well die in the movie.
This is pretty refreshing actually because there are going to be proper stakes in this movie.
