'Suicide Squad' movie rumor: Lives of characters at the mercy of director?


Based on the storyline of the upcoming “Suicide Squad” movie, it is safe to expect that the movie will feature a lot of deaths among the featured characters. After all, the title of the movie is suggestive of violent deaths. However, rumor has it that the fate of the “Suicide Squad” characters is actually in the hands of the movie’s director David Ayer and dependent on how much blood shed and deaths he’d like to see.

“It feels good to be bad…Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?” goes the synopsis of the movie.

Cinema Blend noted that Ayer’s supposedly fondness for killing characters is evident in two of the movies he previously made, “Fury” and “Sabotage.” While it is true that Warner Bros. will guide the fate of the characters in the movie, it is believed that the moviegoers will witness a good number of deaths with Ayer at the helm.

Warner Bros and Ayer’s decision on whom to kill in the movie is reportedly dependent on the amount of compassion that each character gets from the fans. From there, they will decide whom to keep alive to continue on to the movie’s coming sequels.

What Culture opined that death can happen to any member of the “Suicide Squad.” After all, the members – Joker, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, Rick Flag, Amanda Waller, Captain Boomerang, El Diablo to name some – take on high-risk tasks that have a low rate of success to carry out. With this, it is but obvious that deaths among the characters become inevitable.
