We all love watching movies of our favorite stars, and once in a year or two, we get a chance to watch all our favorite stars in a single film. And this year released Suicide Squad is one of those movies.
Suicide Squad is a story of superheroes who are criminals, and they work together to form a defensive task force. This movie was in controversies for so many reasons on its release, and there are some mind-blowing facts about suicide squad that you might not know.
Here're a few facts about the movie you should know right now.
Jared Leto got so engaged in performing The Joker's character that he didn't even break out of character when he wasn't on-screen. He even sent his fellow cast "Joker-like" presents: bullets to Will Smith, a rat to Margot Robbie and a dead hog for the whole crew. Scott Eastwood, Leto's best friend, mentioned that Leto terrified him at times with his behavior.
To qualify for his character as Deadshot, Will Smith cut his hair and took some time to practice with Navy SEALS and Army Rangers. He also prepared himself to fire a Glock 9mm handgun and an AR-15 rifle. The actor turned out to be a keen learner. He was naturally good with long distance shots using the AR-15.
Ben Affleck is the first actor to portray Batman in two different movies that too in the same year.
Bradley Cooper, Luke Evans, Joel Edgerton, Mark Wahlberg, Tom Cruise, Jake Gyllenhaal and Jon Bernthal were the director's first choice for the role of Rick Flag.
Imogen Poots, Olivia Thirlby, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alison Brie, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, Emma Watson, Emma Roberts, Sara Paxton, Emily Browning, Zooey Deschanel, Lily Collins, Evan Rachel Wood were all considered for the role of Harley Quinn. There were also the rumors that there's Amanda Seyfried in Suicide Squad, but she along with others turned down the role.
It is the first film in a comic genre to have supervillains group in a leading role.
Ryan Gosling and Leonardo Di Caprio were offered the role of The Joker.
Margot Robbie was two years old when the character of Harley Quinn was featured in the comic book.
The cast and the crew of Suicide Squad have more than 200 people. It was so hard on-set for the director to remember the name of every responsible person. I wonder how they managed food and transport of their crew members.
