Director James Gunn has revealed the one Suicide Squad character that he couldn’t bring himself to kill off in his latest film.
James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is a sequel to the 2016 movie, and like the first movie, it’s featuring a group of supervillains from the DC Expanded Universe who are forced to assemble a team and fight evil.
Although Gunn killed several characters in the opening scene of his latest movie “Suicide Squad,” he revealed to the Variety Show that there was one character that he couldn’t afford to kill, even if it was his original plan.
Gunn revealed that he killed Ratcatcher 2 in development, but admitted that he could not do so because the character was too “sweet” to kill. He also said he was worried that death might be too dark.
Here’s what James Gunn said:
“There was a change. The original ending that I pitched, one main character died and one main character did not die.
And the main character who died was Ratcatcher 2. She was so sweet, I just felt like it was just too dark. Not that we don’t love Polka Dot Man. We do. I just couldn’t [kill Ratcatcher 2]. So I relented.”
