In another news, Peter Safran, the film producer, tells EW that Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) ensemble the new Task Force X when the fictional Latin American country of Corto Maltese plans to weaponize alien materials to use against the United States and the rest of the world. The Suicide Squad’s mission in the movie will be to go to Corto Maltese and Jotunheim, destroy the giant fortress.
Looks like Starro will be the perpetrator behind Corto Maltese’s plans to take over the world. In the comics, Starro is an intelligent alien lifeform resembling a giant starfish with the ability mind control people with miniature duplicate “spores” of itself. The first film trailer revealed the villain will be controlling some Corto Maltese soldiers with his miniature duplicates.
The Suicide Squad is set to premiere in theaters and on HBO Max on August 6, 2021.
