Although this movie will focus on bad guys trying to do some good, that won’t be the case for others. Director David Ayer said it himself during the comic con panel for Suicide Squad. This will be a very different film, this is “Bad vs. Evil“.
We know who the bad will consist of (Deadshot, Harley Quinn, El Diablo, Killer Croc, Rick Flagg, Captain Boomerang, Slipknot, Katana), but what about the evil?
Although he’ll certainly have a presence in the cinematic universe going forward, its most likely that Jared Leto’s Joker will be a side character in this film. Which really leaves only one character to potentially be the main villain. Here’s Umberto Gonzalez from Heroic Hollywood.
The latest rumor is the main villain of the movie is The Enchantress, and she is in search of her brother who she wants to resurrect. The Suicide Squad is sent on a mission to stop her from destroying the world.
In the report, it also mentions that due to the nature of WB’s secrecy this rumor is unconfirmed. Like most of the rumors today, this one must be taken with a grain of salt.
However, Umberto points out signs in the trailer that point towards The Enchantress being the main villain. She looks possessed at one point in the trailer, sitting in the water. Also like The Joker, she stands apart from the team, never being in the same place they are at any point in the trailer. This sounds accurate to me, but we’ll have a better idea once the second trailer arrives.
What do you guys think about The Enchantress being the main villain? Is she a worthy enough foe for the Suicide Squad?
