The quantity of uncontested wins garnered by the DC Prolonged Universe are few and much between, however the few which have come out of the woodwork have executed in order loudly and as colorfully as attainable, as The Suicide Squad did again in 2021.

Finest described because the Suicide Squad executed appropriately on the large display, James Gunn’s ultra-violent romp sees the titular supervillain workforce – consisting of such characters as Idris Elba’s Bloodsport, John Cena’s Peacemaker, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, and David Dastmalchian’s Polka-Dot Man – embark on the hilariously harmful tour of placing a cease to Starro the Conqueror, an enormous starfish monster that has fallen below management of the corrupt Corto Maltese authorities.

The Suicide Squad‘s unabashed delight with which it acknowledges itself as a comic book guide film is second to none; a refreshing change of tempo given how so many latest movies in the identical vein carry themselves. That is to say that it’s not afraid to lean into sheer, comic-appropriate nonsense, which may even be discovered within the little touches, akin to King Shark’s poorly-fitting trousers.

In line with Steve Agee, who supplied movement seize for the carnivorous powerhouse and who just lately spoke to SlashFilm on this crucial subject, that exact piece of bodily humor was a cheerful accident introduced on by Agee’s instincts and Gunn’s impeccable decision-making.

“James sort of let me do my very own factor bodily. It was actually humorous although, as a result of should you discover within the film, he’s at all times adjusting and pulling up his shorts whereas he’s working. That was me doing that… It was completely actual. They gave me shorts to put on over my spandex physique go well with, and so they had been a bit too free, and spandex is actually slippery. So each time I used to be working, I used to be pulling up my shorts. And after I watched the film, I used to be like, ‘Oh my God, they really used [that].’ It’s sort of humorous they used that. So yeah, that was all me.”

Certainly, King Shark’s best enemy wasn’t Starro or his crippling loneliness; it was inaccurate sizing charts. If there seems to be area for the aquatic menace in Gunn’s new DC Universe, one can solely marvel if such an antagonist may also observe him to this courageous new world.
