SPOILERISH details on the Suicide Squad villain, plus new promo images and what we’d like in the Harley Quinn movie

June 4th, 2016 by Marc Comments


So, while we have figured out much of Suicide Squad, there’s still loads we don’t know – which is great – including just who is the villain(s).

In the trailers we see soldiers attacking the Squad and an underground train but they aren’t normal soldiers, they are covered in black, tar-like stuff and no-one, us included, had any idea who they are.

Now producer Charles Roven told Total Film Magazine a few details about them and, while they are SPOILERY, it still doesn’t shed too much light not them.

“Let’s just say, when [the Squad is],” he says, “called in to do this mission by Amanda [Waller], these are one of the things they encounter. “They don’t know how they got here, but they’re weird and dangerous and yet they’re wearing military uniforms.”

He says they’re called “Eyes of the Adversary” which surely implies somewhere there’s a big bad, waiting on the squad. Rumours have been rife that it’s Joker, Enchantess and others but no-one really knows. Isn’t that great!?

However, as a final tease, he adds that there is “evidence of a devastating supernatural force at play on the streets of Midway City [and] black secretions jutting out of a long crater on the floor.” 

Whatever it is, we hope it remains secret until the movie opens on August 5th because we miss the days of seeing movies and having some surprises ahead…

Also, checkout the new Suicide Squad promo images from Empire and scroll for a video about what we might see in the Harley movie. Enjoy.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
