It’s been a while since we’ve heard about The Suicide Squad, but Jai Courtney has changed that up a bit thanks to a new interview.
As the cast of The Suicide Squad came together, everyone waited to see which actors would return from the first film. Jai Courtney’s turn as Captain Boomerang made the cut, and made his way to James Gunn’s follow-up film. Courtney recently sat down with Variety to promote his upcoming film Stateless, and the upcoming DC film naturally came up in the conversation.
“I think it’s kind of got a different flavor,” said Courtney to comments from other cast that the film is funnier. “There’s a whole bunch of new characters. James Gunn has an approach to things that is uniquely his; he pulls a lot of that into the Suicide Squad world. And I think that it fits really well, and audiences are going to have a lot of fun with it.”
As to the most fun he had on set, Courtney said, “I won’t to [sic] say too much, but there’s a particular sequence when I get very wet, and a few other people do, and hilarity ensued when it came to that. When you’re spending hours upon hours in a water tank with a bunch of people treading water, and you’ve got Styrofoam stuffed into every crevice of your costume to try and take the load off and because it’s 4 a.m., it gets quite ridiculous.”
With King Shark reportedly being involved in the film, you can’t help but wonder if a large water tank may have something to do with him. We’ll just have to wait and see.
The Suicide Squad is due to hit theaters on Aug. 6, 2021.
