SQUAD GOALS

OUR WISHLIST FOR JAMES GUNN’S TAKE ON SUI­CIDE SQUAD

Empire (UK) - - PREVIEW -

1. New team mem­bers

A lot of char­ac­ters have passed through Task Force X’s ranks down the years — so it would be an ideal time for Gunn to bring in some fresh blood. (Warner Bros. have con­firmed it will be a “fresh new take”.) A no­table char­ac­ter from the orig­i­nal comics line-up is Bronze Tiger, a com­plex an­ti­hero who, in Gunn’s hands, could bring new depth to the team.

2. Mix with the wider uni­verse

It’s long been a fea­ture of the Sui­cide Squad’s his­tory that their grey morals of­ten run up against those of more tra­di­tional he­roes. The first film al­ready gave us a glimpse of this with its Bruce Wayne con­fronta­tion, but we’d like to see the squad brought more into the ex­ist­ing DCEU as a di­rect chal­lenge for the Jus­tice League.

3. A killer sound­track

We’ll never get to hear what Gunn’s ‘Awe­some Mix, Vol. 3’ would have sounded like, now — but this could be the per­fect place to hear an­other killer com­pi­la­tion, built around more of a co­her­ent theme than the first Sui­cide Squad’s eclec­tic sound­track was.
