James Gunn's Suicide Squad Will Be Very Different, Says Jai Courtney

The second Suicide Squad movie, that will be directed by James Gunn is going to be totally different from the previous movie.

After Jai Courtney came back for the role of "Digger" Harkness in The Suicide Squad, the world around him has been changed quite a bit. Some of it includes changes in casting, tonal changes, and a new director as now the movie will be directed by James Gunn, who has stepped in for David Ayer, whose Suicide Squad was a big commercial hit but a critical failure. At the beginning that Ayer's influence would continue to loom large over the characters and Warner Bos. have previously talked about were either dropped or changed. Now, as Courtney with fellow returning Suicide Squad stars Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, and Viola Davis will be playing the same character, in what is ostensibly the same universe...but things are going to be pretty different.

During an interview for his upcoming movie 'Semper Fi' where Courtney was asked whether he thought the shift was going to be weird. He said, "I don’t think it’s going to be weird. "It’s kind of funny that we’re getting it up to go again and there’s a bunch of new people and a bunch of old people, too. It’s going to be different, for sure, but I think everyone’s welcoming that challenge and welcoming the new energy in. I loved David, I loved working with David, I’d work with David again in a heartbeat. But Gunn, too, is quite prolific and really, obviously, does know what he’s doing. I’m excited to see what he brings to it. It’s going to be tonally different but very cool as well. The world has evolved from where we were at that point; he’s going to have his own take on it, and it’s going to be great."

Nothing much is known about the plot of the movie which will also star David Dastmalchian, Taika Waititi, Michael Rooker, Peter Capaldi, Idris Elba, and more. Apart from a dazzling star-cast the movie also stars a number of relatively unknown supervillains like Polka-Dot Man, King Shark, and Ratcatcher.
