If Suicide Squad has taught us nothing else, the stars of the upcoming DC movie are having to get in great shape for the action scenes. Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, and now Jai Courtney have all commented on their training regiments for the movie.

For the man who will be Captain Boomerang, this means learning some new moves.

“I’ve been training for three months in different martial arts,” said Courtney. “As you can imagine for that superhero world, the athletic expectations are rather high.”

However, if you asked what he’s most looking forward to in the movie. It’s the fact he’s going back to his roots.

“I play an Aussie, which is going to be really fun.”

Suicide Squad hits theaters on August 6th 2016.
