The Suicide Squad plot: What’s The Suicide Squad about?
Originally, we assumed the plot would probably follow the basic outline of all Suicide Squad stories – Amanda Waller dispatches her team on a mission where it’s doubtful that they will make it out alive. Cue the double crossing.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gunn’s movie will be inspired more by Jon Ostrander and Kim Yale’s 1980s comic run, than the New 52 version that inspired Ayer’s original movie.
