Mild spoilers ahead for Suicide Squad. Don't read further or watch the above video unless you don't mind being spoiled from a fun surprise!
The much-anticipated Suicide Squad film is nearly here, and as was revealed yesterday, it has one more Justice Leaguer in it than expected. While everyone saw clips and stills of Batman (and he was literally witnessed on the set in Toronto), no one knew another member of the team would show up - including Jai Courtney, Captain Boomerang in the movie, who shares screentime with the hero in question: The Flash. The cameo (we won't spoil the details) is shown when the individual Squad members are introduced. Could that lead to more on-screen time between the two, who've clashed many times in the pages of DC Comics? Courtney sure hopes so.
"Yeah, I don't know, I don't think there's anything restricting it from happening," Courtney said of making the jump to The Flash solo film. "It's not a conversation that I've had yet. It'd be dope though, I'd love to. With these properties, and this world, the potential to kind of cross-contaminate is there everywhere. It would be dope to be part of that. I'd love the opportunity."
The actor also noted that he hopes "we get to do a few more of these for sure," he told us. "It'd be dope to see [Captain Boomerang] in his natural habitat" in a possible sequel, he said. "It'd be cool to see what he's capable of, give him a little more room to move, spread his wings a little. We did kind of introduce a feeling that he has these makeshift creations; he's like a garage cook of sorts with his weapons. We had this idea that his coat is sort of Mary Poppins's bag, he could pull anything out of there and we didn't have to justify how it fit or if he was ever going to run out. He's not the most equipped when it comes to powers, but it'd be cool to play in that space."
You can see Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang for the first time in Suicide Squad on August 5, 2016.
