The Suicide Squad executive producer Peter Safran recently shared a new plot detail for the film that fans might be interested in learning, and it involves secret Nazi experiments.
The film has previously been described as a 1970s style war movie. Now we know that the Suicide Squad team will be heading on a mission to Corto Maltese in South America, where they have to recover something from a former German prison and laboratory. Safran explains:
“There they have to destroy a Nazi-era prison and laboratory named Jotunheim, where political prisoners were held and experimentations took place.”
The previously released posters for the film, which you can see here, paid homage to imagery from DC Comics’ Suicide Squad #1 from the ’80s. In that story, the Suicide Squad stormed the fortress Jotunheim. In the poster, you can actually see Jotunheim prison in the background blowing up. Little did we know at the time what the team’s mission was.
Well, now we know at least one plot aspect of the film’s story. There’s no doubt that there’s a lot more to it than that, but it’ll be fun to see how this mission turns out and learn what exactly the team is looking to retrieve from the prison that they are tasked with destroying.
The Suicide Squad stars Idris Elba as Bloodsport, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, David Dastmalchian as Polka-Dot Man, Steve Agee as King Shark, and Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher, Michael Rooker as Savant, Flula Borg as Javelin, Nathan Fillion is T.D.K., Mayling Ng as Mongal, Peter Capaldi as The Thinker, Alice Braga as Sol Soria, Steve Agee is King Shark, John Cena is Peacemaker, Joaquín Cosío is Mayor General Mateo Suarez, Pete Davidson is Blackguard, Sean Gunn is Weasel, Jennifer Holland is Emilia Harcourt, Storm Reid is Bloodsport’s daughter, Tyla, and more.
