As we previously reported Suicide Squad is featured in the December issue of Empire Magazine, which features The Joker on the cover for a special limited edition.
Within the issue Suicide Squad director David Ayer talks on the story and the characters that’ll be taking place or at least hints at it.
When talking about the Task Force X’s main mission Ayer had this to say:
“They’re after a high value target that they have to go in and rescue. When they make the attempt, they realize that’s not the end.”
When talking Good vs. Bad or rather Bad vs. Evil, Ayer had this to say:
“F**k good versus bad,” Ayer adds. “Bad versus evil is a lot more interesting. And Amanda Waller is the worst there is.”
Which actress Viola Davis had to say about her character of Amanda:
“She’s relentless in her villainy, when you look at her, there’s nothing that seems dangerous. Her only power is her intelligence and her complete lack of guilt. I read a great book called Confessions of a Sociopath, which was frightening but very helpful…”
Ayer goes on to talk about Harley Quinn and her broke relationship with The Joker:
“It’s about her breaking free of The Joker and becoming this fully actualised, independent person. That really is a metaphor for everyone’s journey here.”
Will Smith also had this to add about his character of Deadshot when it comes to Harley:
“Harley is the biggest troublemaker, but Deadshot’s actually eyeballing her a little bit. There’s a pretty ragged romantic triangle there.”
Smith goes on to talk more about how his character ends up on the Task Force X:
“As the movie opens, he has a really big career score,” the actor reveals. “He’s looking to turn over a new leaf with his daughter after the hit, but it goes wrong. It goes terribly, terribly wrong. And it lands him in Belle Reve for life.”
