When James Gunn unveiled the cast of THE SUICIDE SQUAD over the weekend fans were wondering two things; who will be the main villain and which character Taika Watiti will play in the upcoming movie. Now thanks to a fan’s sharp eyes and new recent reports we have the answer.
THE SUICIDE SQUAD MAIN VILLAIN.
A fan shared an image on Reddit of what they believe to be, Starro, a Silver Age supervillain, and the first threat defeated by the Justice League of America. The fan noticed in the film’s BTS featurette released during DC FanDome soldiers with starfish attached to their faces at exactly 00:15 and 00:45 second marks. Starro is an intelligent alien lifeform resembling a giant starfish with the ability mind control people with miniature duplicate “spores” of itself.
On Taika Waititi character in THE SUICIDE SQUAD.
Splashreport is reporting that Thor: Love and Thunder and The Mandalorian director is portraying the first Ratcatcher and not Starro. The website says the villain won’t have a voice in the film and will only be able to communicate through the people he mind-control. This theory kind makes sense. Daniela Melchior was revealed to be playing Ratcatcher 2 and not Ratcatcher in The Suicide Squad. It will be logical for the film to introduce the first Ratcatcher as a backstory to Melchior’s character.
