James Gunn Explains How Movies Work, Promises to Kill Off Many Characters in Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad director James Gunn took to Twitter this week to declare that filming with several of Suicide Squad's stars had wrapped, along with the movie's time filming in Panama.

But if Gunn is done filming with those characters, does that mean they've been killed off?

Well, as Gunn explains, movies don't typically film that way. The scenes are filmed out of order from how they will appear in the film, organized in such a way as to make the actual filming logistically easier. So, no, this doesn't mean those characters died…

…but it doesn't mean they didn't either. Because Gunn also explained how Suicide Squad works: don't get attached.

And Gunn will have no shortage of options for who to kill off considering the movie's gigantic cast, including Margot Robbie, Taika Waititi, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, David Dastmalchian, Steve Agee, Daniela Melichior, John Cena, Flula Borg, Nathan Fillion, Mayling Ng, Pete Davidson, Sean Gunn, Joaquin Cosio, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Tinashe Kajese, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Idris Elba, and Michael Rooker. The movie is set to hit theaters in August, 2021.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
