Jai Courtney is down like a clown for a Suicide Squad sequel with David Ayer

09.26.2016

I don’t think we have to keep talking about the reception to SUICIDE SQUAD. It came out, the reviews were meh, but it still made a butt-load of cash. Now it’s time to talk sequel, and one of the movie's stars is down and ready to get back into the nitty gritty—Jai Courtney.

The actor who portrayed the deliriously insane Captain Boomerang spoke with the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via Batman-News) to talk about many things, including the reception to SQUAD, proving it hasn’t deterred him from suiting up again with director David Ayer:

“How do you please everyone? And I don’t think Suicide Squad ever intended to. So no one’s setting out to upset the fan base, certainly not a fan base that can be as loyal as this kind of crowd can. But I don’t know how you can push the envelope or try and protect something [without taking risks]. I know what I like in a movie, and it’s not the same thing as my twelve-year-old niece. It’s a challenge, and David [Ayer] did an incredible job, and I sure as hell hope we get to make another one with him.”

Courtney went on to say how he “really liked SUICIDE SQUAD” and how he believes it was “performed incredibly well.” Still, the conversation around why maybe fanboys have been less pleased with DC’s movies than Marvel’s was bound to come up. Courtney talked about the two franchises in regards to the DCEU’s relative infancy:

“Well DC is the still bad guy too, you know, and Marvel has this incredible formula that seems to work. They’ve had the time to let that shit marinate. Everything’s established now, we don’t have to figure out who anyone is. It’s like ‘Cool. Get them all together and let’s have a f*cking orgy and make a billion dollars.’ ”

Though I can't say I'm a huge fan of Courtney's I did like him in SQUAD, along with the rest the cast, and do agree with him that the movie was performed quite well, even if not everyone got their time to shine (*cough* Joker *cough*. Sorry, I meant to say The Joker, but I coughed). I wasn't as pleased with the rest of the movie, but maybe a sequel will be better, especially once DC and Warner Bros. really get a feel for their DCEU, which has great potential. If not, they can at least have a f@cking orgy and make hundreds of millions of dollars. It may not be as fun as an orgy with a billion dollars, but it's close.

Of course he wants a sequel, his career is in the shitcan and the guy wants to ruin more movies. Hollywood has goto guys for ruining movies. Jai is one of them. He always makes bad movies worse and decent movies bad.

Hopefully they give him something to do in the sequel. The coolest thing Boomerang did in SS was the cameo when he got arrested. Other than his camera boomerang, which came out of nowhere, he had no purpose.

Poop

Suicide Squad was so badly done. Not sure why they would bother to make another one. Nor do I understand why anyone would pay to see it.

On this site I may be in the minority, but I hated Suicide Squad

I was excited for the movie since the ComicCon early footage release so I had high expectations. Those expectations were shit on by the movie that followed. I think I was disappointed from the top down. Harley Quinn was probably the best part of the movie and even she wasn't quite right. (Close though at least)

no surprise there but moving forward,the studio and director need to realize why most people are upset.they marketed the fuck out of joker in suicide squad,over hyped him so much for literally 5 minutes of screen time,and don't even get me started on enchantress as the main villain.like seriously how hard is it to read an actual suicide comic?first movie should have bee centered around that politicians comment in the first trailer,what would happen if superman decided to attack the white house

I'm not a fan of his at all, but will say that he made for a good Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad. If Ayer and DC can't make a Suicide Squad 2 in the near time future, then I wouldn't mind seeing him show up again in The Flash film.
