While everyone and their grandma knew Batman was going to show up in last summer's Suicide Squad, one of the bigger surprises was the cameo appearance from The Flash, played by Ezra Miller in the DCEU. It was leaked a few days leading up to the initial release, but still arrived as a nice moment for some of the less initiated. Now, the cat is out of the bag, and Warner Bros. is showing its full deck as the movie gets ready for its big extended edition debut on Blu-ray. They have officially released the Barry Allen cameo for all to enjoy.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has been feverishly doling out a cool new character specific video series over the past couple of weeks, focusing on all the main players in Suicide Squad. And there are a lot of them. Today, we get the Suicide Squad Squadtroductions that puts a spotlight on Captain Boomerang, played by Jai Courtney. And as luck would have it, he's the one that gets to interact with The Flash in the movie.
While we get to learn all kinds of cool facts about this super villain from down under, it's Ezra Miller's appearance in this latest sneak peek at the upcoming Extended Edition Blu-ray that is especially noteworthy. In the movie, Barry Allen is the one responsible for bringing Captain Boomerang to Belle Reve. He's only in the movie for a few seconds, but Miller certainly makes a strong impression, and while a lot of fans simply don't want to admit it, he will definitely give Grant Gustin's TV version of The Flash a run for his money.
The Suicide Squad extended cut arrives on Digital HD in just a few days, hitting VOD services on November 15. It then comes home on Blu-ray December 13, just in time for Christmas. The Blu-ray features kick-off with a preview entitled Task Force X: One Team, One Mission, where fans can discover the rich legacy of DC's most infamous bad guys. There is also Squad Strength and Skills, which offers the "inside story" of how the cast got into shape for this movie, Joker and Harley: The 'It' Couple of the Underworld, which showcases The Joker and Harley Quinn's relationship, Chasing the Real, where writer/director David Ayer reveals techniques for creating an authentic surreal world, along with a Gag Reel. Here is the official synopsis.
"It feels good to be bad...Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Super Villains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself? A secret government agency, led by the ruthless, high-ranking official Amanda Waller, recruits some of the most dangerous, incarcerated villains on the planet to execute dangerous black ops missions and save the world from a potentially apocalyptic threat from a mysterious, supernatural entity. If anything goes wrong on this mission, the government will not be liable but rather can place the blame on the villains, who are inherently evil people. A small bomb is implanted in each member of the squad's neck with the capability of detonating any time one of the members tries to rebel or escape. It will be up to this assembled team of villains to prevail over the seemingly impossible events that will unfold before them, in what many deem to be a "suicide mission".
Ezra Miller just wrapped his role as The Flash in Justice League, which will be in theaters this November. Though the standalone Flash movie recently lost its second director in a row, Miller claims the spin-off is shooting before year's end. However it all decides to shake out, we can get a look at the superhero in costume in this latest Suicide Squad Blu-ray sneak peek.
