[edit]

Synopsis: A secret government agency recruits some of the most dangerous incarcerated super-villains to form a defensive task force. Their first mission: save the world from the apocalypse.


Reaction: The added bits seem to primarily focus on character moments. Not necessary to the story, but they provide a bit more understanding of, in particular, Harley Quinn.


Personal Rating: 6/10

  • The mercenary Deathstroke briefly had an appearance in this film, and Joe Manganiello was considered for the role. He is slated to appear in Ben Affleck's [Batman] movie.
  • Tom Hardy was originally cast as Rick Flag but dropped out to due The Revenant. Hardy had previously played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, who was a former member of the Suicide Squad in the comic books.

  • The helicopter crash scene was the last to be shot just in case any of the actors got injured and filming was delayed.
  • It took the makeup team five hours for the prosthetic make-up to be applied to Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, with the makeup applied to his head and shoulders while the rest was body paint.
  • While reading the comic books in preparation to direct the film, David Ayer had Margot Robbie in mind for the role of Harley Quinn. However, Emma Roberts was offered for the role by Warner Bros., but she turned it down to star in [Scream Queens]. [?] Olivia Thirlby, [?] Imogen Poots, Alison Brie, [?] Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, Emma Watson, Emily Browning, Zooey Deschanel, Lily Collins, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, [?] Sara Paxton, Amanda Seyfried and Evan Rachel Wood were also considered for the role of Harley Quinn.

  • During Harley's on screen stats, it briefly flashes that she assisted in the murder of Robin.
  • When the Joker is shown lying on the floor in his club, surrounded by weapons, in the top right corner there are two infant sized onesies, one pink and the other blue.

  • During Deadshot's "dossier" sequence at the start of the film, the list of weapons with which he is deadly includes the potato cannon.
