The suicide squad keeps coming and it doesn’t stop coming! James Gunn has released another trailer with some more information about this happy, deadly band of super villains hitting your screen this summer.
The suicide squad follows a merry band of bloodthirsty supervillains straight out of Arkham, including Harley Quinn, who work for the government to reduce their sentences. However, like the trailers before The suicide squad Constantly remind us that one wrong move and a microchip in their brainstems will blow their heads off at the touch of a button.
While there is still some information (Starro), there is a little more character information in this new trailer, including a flashing reveal and you miss talking about the character Nathan Fillion plays. Let’s jump right into the action!
The trailer itself repeats the content from the first time The suicide squad trailer, but with a few key takeaways: who does the voiceover in the beginning and why do Nathan Fillion’s arms float next to him?
Die-hard DC fans already know what’s what. Additionally, with detailed cast notes, Nathan Fillion would play a character called Floyd Belking / TDK per The Hollywood ReporterTDK, of course, stands for the Detachable Kid, or Arms-Fall-Off-Boy.
He is one of the most “random” characters in the DC Universe per THR, although IGN The Detachable Kid was an original character from Gunn’s and Arm-Fall-Off Boy was the original DC comics character. Either way, its exterior inside The suicide squad adds another layer of weirdness that James Gunn is expected to deliver.
Who is the rando?
Seven months ago, a sleuth on Reddit posted a screenshot of members of The Suicide Squad posing in several candid photos on a poster board. One of them, if you look really close, has detachable arms that float in the air. One Redditor called the choice “weird” because they seemed to float next to him. They put that in The suicide squad trailer, too.
Indeed, Arm-Fall-Off-Boy’s superpowers just loosen his limbs and use them as blunt weapons according to DC’s fansite. While these power could make ‘stop hitting yourself’ games more interesting with The Detached Kid, they don’t stay floating, according to DC Lore.
Also as IGN pointed out, Arm-Fall-Off-Boy only appears as a joke here and there in DC comics and good after The suicide squad occurs. Arm-Fall-Off-Boy’s time is in the thirtieth century as he constantly tries and fails to join the Legion of Super-Heroes because. We’re just going to say it – his strength is weak!
However, James Gunn is apparently giving Arm-Fall-Off-Boy a makeover, including a less craptastic name and a more [email protected] version of the superpower, where the ability to eradicate limbs from “stop hitting yourself” is lame actually usefulLike, if you can untie your arms and let them float, it’s 100 times more useful in our humble opinion.
The cast of Suicide Squad
The rest of the cast has been largely announced. Aside from heavy hitters like Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn and Sylvester Stallone’s surprise announcement voicing King Shark, notables in James Gunn’s roster will appear in The suicide squadincluding Gunn’s brother Sean as Weasel and Michael Rooker (Yondu in the Guardians of the Universe series) to play Savant.
Like Rooker and Sean Gunn, Nathan Fillion has also appeared in James Gunn’s work. The Castle and Firefly star has acted in Gunn’s Slithering SuperFillion is known for playing devil heroes with a little side of silliness like “I swear by my pretty flower cap” Captain Malcolm Reynolds Firefly and Jacques Snicket in Netflix’s A series of unfortunate events, so expect to see Gunn play with Fillion’s usual schtick The suicide squad
