Suicide Squad 2 First Look Teaser Breakdown – The Suicide Squad Explained


welcome back everyone it’s Charlie we
have our first look preview of James Gunn’s
Suicide Squad they’re calling it the Suicide Squad instead of calling it
Suicide Squad – but it effectively is a sequel to the first movie I’ll explain
what the timeline and the continuity is and how they’re going to handle it and
why all these characters look so crazy we’re doing a movie ticket giveaway all
you have to do to enter is be subscriber and leave your favorite Suicide Squad
character on the video so just to clarify what’s going on with this movie
this is set after the events of the first Suicide Squad movie and instead of
doing a full blown reboot of the first Suicide Squad movie they’re keeping the
Suicide Squad as the title it just writing into the story why it is there’s
so many different versions of the Suicide Squad in a way that’s funny but
also explains the concept of the team Amanda Waller taking criminals that
nobody cares about using them for the worst of the worst jobs that none of the
heroes want to do because they might die and the Suicide Squad members are all
expendable so once I explain some of these ridiculous characters that they
have and why they seem so silly it’ll make more sense because part of the idea
is is that you kill off members of the Suicide Squad just to show how
expendable they are at the beginning of each of the movies hold your fire sorry that’s what I do but several characters from the first
film are coming back for the second film just letting you know where it fits in
the timeline in that they’re not completely wiping the first Suicide
Squad from history I’ll explain these characters then I’ll
explain the story just a little bit the setup is actually pretty hilarious but
in a good way first there’s mei-ling as female Mangal Mangal with an A not Mongo
she’s the daughter of mongaul in the comics she’s only been used a couple
times she showed up during our worlds at war she kind of worked with the heroes
but she’s mostly known as a villain Nathan Fillion is playing a Booster Gold
villain called blackguard he’s a character from the future I don’t know
if they’re gonna make him from the future in the movie but he joins the
criminal gang the 1000 they give him this special suit of armor that gives
him his abilities if you’ve been a fan of Nathan Fillion for a long time you
probably get the meta joke in casting him is a Booster Gold villain one they
need a bunch of ridiculous villains for an early version of the team before the
real team surfaces but for the longest time people have been asking Nathan
Fillion if he was ever going to play Booster Gold in a DC movie going back
years people fan casting him as Green Lantern so this is just sort of James
Gunn’s joke in casting him is a really ridiculous minor character riff on those
other big theories that fans have had for a long time one of you saw Pete Davidson you’re like
why is Pete Davison in the Suicide Squad this seems crazy he was a self-styled
vigilante that tried to help people initially but was terrible at it so he
turned to a life of crime hacking started working for the Russian mafia he
became a birds-of-prey villain and then eventually joined the Suicide Squad
after he was captured but he has genius-level intellect he’s an expert at
hand-to-hand combat he’s really good with computers I know you’ve all saw
this crazy yellow costume and you’re like who the hell is this this is
actually Flula Borg he’s a former YouTube comedian that’s now been
starring in movies and television shows he’s actually made it pretty big but
because he’s mostly known for doing ridiculous comedy when people heard that
he was cast in Suicide Squad they’re like wait a minute what is Flula gonna
be doing in this movie he’s playing a character named javelin who’s a former
Olympic athlete who turned to a life of crime he became a Green Lantern villain
for a little while he doesn’t really have any special powers to speak of just
really good at hand-to-hand combat athletics throwing his javelin to people
so he is a pretty ridiculous character which will make more sense in a second
when I explained it all I know you’re all wondering who Sean Gunn is going to
be playing because clearly it’s going to be a motion-capture character he’s
actually playing a character wait for it called weasel during all the Marvel
movies he actually doubles as the stand-in for rocket on screen when
Bradley Cooper isn’t around because they need someone to actually be that
character and run around on all fours when they’re walking around together in
the comics he’s capable of transforming into a weasel which is weasel like claw
animal-type powers nothing really crazy he was part of the Black Lantern Corps
for a little while because they killed him off and then brought him back during
blackest night the only real reason they recruited him into the Suicide Squad in
the comics is just because he was so bloodthirsty and they felt like he would
be good asset during a mission then you all recognize Jai Courtney coming back
as Captain Boomerang with a slightly more tuned down version of his costume
not quite as dirty as the version we saw in the last Suicide Squad movie just
confirming that this is continuing after the events of the last film thought I’m
walking out of here free man we’re gonna start having some real fun the other
characters that aren’t pictured here but that they’ve confirmed are John Cena
who’s playing a character called peacemaker
I’ll explain him in a second David – Dastmalchian from the ant-man movies is
playing polkadot man we don’t know who Taika Waititi is playing maybe another
big motion capture character but King shark is being played by Steve Agee
at least that’s what’s being reported they just did a big king shark vs. Grodd
storyline last year on the flash it was great Danijela Melchior is playing a character
called ratcatcher peter capaldi is still a mystery character it would be awesome
if he’s playing mr. freeze but it’ll probably wind up being an obscure
character just because that seems like what James Gunn is going for with this
new film picking the most ridiculous most obscure characters possible with a
few exceptions Idris Elba obviously not in this picture but he’s supposed to be
playing vigilante he’s the replacement for Will Smith’s Deadshot character
originally the idea was is they would just recast Deadshot because either Will
Smith didn’t want to come back or there was a scheduling conflict then because
the producers didn’t want to slap Will Smith in the face by recasting him they
just picked a different character for Idris Elba to play if you haven’t
watched any of arrow they actually featured the vigilante character on that
TV show for a couple seasons Joel Kinnaman is coming back from the first
film is Rick Flagg Margot Robbie is coming back as Harley Quinn and I’ll
explain the timeline a little bit because she’s also going to be in
birds-of-prey early next year too then Amanda Waller
from the last film is coming back so that’s already a lot of characters but
you can kind of tell what’s going on most of you have probably figured it out
why you have a bunch of actors here most of whom are comedians like Pete Davison
Flula Borg what are they doing on a Suicide Squad team early prediction is
probably because this is just the early version of the team at the beginning of
the movie that they kill off right away in a big action scene then Amanda Waller
goes and puts a more competent version of the team together but then I know
you’re asking which characters are gonna be on that second version of the team
and will any of these ones from the early ridiculous team survive so early
prediction for the second version of the team because we don’t see a lot of
characters in here second version is rick flagg
coming back Idris Elba’s vigilante because he seems like he’d be way more
badass Idris Elba just isn’t known for playing incompetent characters and a lot
of these people seem like they’re gonna wind up being pretty incompetent in the
beginning of the film maybe Taika Waititi’s mystery character
Harley Quinn obviously gonna be on the second version of the team she’ll
survive maybe Captain Boomerang survives maybe
they’ll kill him off because he was pretty ridiculous in the first film but
maybe James Gunn will try to redeem him somehow through the script boomerangs a
jewel thief skeezy character and not really
necessarily lockable and David really wanted me to find my inner
pretty much these words john cena’s peacemaker will probably be on that
second version of the team just because john cena typically plays really badass
characters just because king shark is such an awesome character he’ll probably
be on that second version of the team Peter Capaldi might not be a member of
The Suicide Squad he might just be playing another character that works for
Amanda Waller then maybe the ratcatcher character just because they try to
balance it in terms of number of women number of men on the team they haven’t
said who the villains going to be but this will take place after the events of
the first Suicide Squad movie after the events of Justice League and after the
events of the birds of prey movie so really easy way to explain why Margot
Robbie’s Harley Quinn isn’t here for this early version of the team because
why wouldn’t they just put her back on a version of the Suicide Squad is because
she’s off in Gotham doing whatever she’s doing during birds-of-prey then probably
gets thrown back in prison and given another opportunity by Amanda Waller
what they’ll probably do in terms of referencing the events of the first film
is that Amanda Waller will have a couple lines of dialogue poking fun at how
terrible the original version of the team was and how they barely survived by
the skin of their teeth accomplishing their goal of getting rid of the
enchantress well they’ll probably do for characters like Will Smith’s Deadshot
who aren’t coming back as they’ll just say they’re off with their daughter or
they’re off doing some other mission but I think the story concept for
introducing this early incompetent version of the team then killing them
off right away is brilliant there’s a rumor right now that it’s going to be
rated R so it makes sense if you’re gonna have a big gory action scene where
you kill all your characters off in the first 15 minutes that it would be a
rated R film for a little while there were rumors that they were gonna try and
use Black Adam as one of the villains but then that went away in the Black
Adam movie turned into something different so there is a bunch of big DC
movie stuff happening right now the Joker movie just blew up I’ve already
done a bunch of videos about that and then on the TV shows they have crisis on
Infinite Earths coming up which is basically their big version of Avengers
infinity war and Avengers end game with all the TV characters so if you have any
big questions about Suicide Squad or any of the other big DC movies that are
coming up or bonus videos you want to request just let me know in the comments
