Jai Courtney Admits to Cringing to the Idea of Captain Boomerang

Shares

Jai Courtney who’s playing Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad is doing his promotional rounds for his latest movie Terminator Genisys, during an interview with Spotlight Report he was asked on how he’s feeling on the role of Captain Boomerang and how he was cast for it.

Which Boomerang explained that he’s feeling great about it and that the vibe with the cast and crew on set is fantastic, he also admits when David Ayer was explaining the character of Captain Boomerang to him, he kind of cringed because of how campy he sounded.

It’s really great, man. I’m really excited about it. The vibe on set’s fantastic. We’ve really found a sort of a family atmosphere out there. The cast are fantastic. And I’m working with some wonderful actors and David Ayer’s someone who… I mean, he was the real draw card for me. I hadn’t read a script at all when I signed on. We’d met on a couple of occasions and we’d spoken. And, to be honest, when he told me that the role of Captain Boomerang was what he was thinking, I kind of cringed. ‘Cause I wasn’t a comic book kid. I wasn’t familiar with the DC universe and the history of that’. So I knew nothing about it. And I was, like, ‘Oh, god, Captain Boomerang…Really?…I really don’t know how Australians will react to this.’ (laughs)

And It’s funny, ‘cause something like that you want to do right. And it’s been interesting finding the balance. But he’s the perfect guy to have on your side, because you look at some of the comic books and some of the old sixties stuff is so hammy, you know, and kind of camp. But, get a guy likeDavid Ayer at the helm of a thing like this and it really gets kind of dark and gritty, and, you know, awesome. And he’s a stickler for authenticity. So I think what we’re going to create is going to be really, really cool.

    I think anyone would cringe at the idea of a villain with a boomerang as a weapon

    • Victor Stone

      But I also think that Captain Boomerang (Digger Harkness) doesn’t have the coolest backstory

    • Which makes one wonder what Ayer is doing to change that!
