Next month, production begins on Warner Bros. highly-anticipated DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad, which brings together iconic characters such as Deadshot (Will Smith), Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), The Joker (Jared Leto), Boomerang (Jai Courtney), Rick Flagg (Joel Kinnaman), Enchantress (Cara Delevingne) and Amanda Waller (Viola Davis). With production scheduled to begin next month in Toronto, Jai Courtney recently spoke to Variety about the super-villain adaptation, and while he wouldn't reveal any specific plot details, he did say that playing Boomerang character will allow him to play an Aussie, as well as train in various martial arts.
"I can't reveal anything about the plot. I'm working with a great cast. It's a wonderful group, and I'm really pumped to be working among them. I play an Aussie, which is going to be really fun. I've been training for three months in different martial arts. As you can imagine for that superhero world, the athletic expectations are rather high."
Variety also spoke with Jai Courtney's co-star Joel Kinnaman, who gave praise to writer-director David Ayer for his "visual talent," while teasing that Suicide Squad will be a massive action endeavor that stays grounded to the characters.
"It's going to be a huge action film, very visual, but grounded in the characters."
When Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was in production, director Zack Snyder revealed official photos of stars such as Henry Cavill (Superman), Ben Affleck (Batman) and Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) in their full superhero costumes. With Suicide Squad about to start production, one can only hope that David Ayer will take a page out of Zack Snyder's playbook and start revealing cast photos.
