CBMB SPOILERS: Suicide Squad Story Leaks May Tell Us Why Tom Hardy Left

By Muuka Muyumba

Latino-Review is reporting that the upcoming Suicide Squad’s story has leaked and they have the details. Warner Brothers has positioned the Suicide Squad movie as the true launching point for their DC Entertainment comic book movie universe as the film would¬†spin off many of the¬†villains for the Justice League movies after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice kickstarts the franchise.

After blasting off with stellar casting, Suicide Squad lost Tom Hardy last week due to reported scheduling conflict. However, reports are now surfacing that Hardy actually left due to reservation about the script. A screen-story that Latino-Review broke down and we have some of the details here.

MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD…

Their sources are telling them that the movie will focus primarily on Deadshot (Will Smith) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) as their paths cross when Harley disrupts an assassination attempt by Deadshot. It is curious that Smith and Robbie will be co-leads in another Warner Brothers thriller this year and director David Ayer’s script just happens to position these two characters as the leads.

The Joker (Jared Leto) is the McGuffin of this story, in a sense because Belle Reve warden Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) uses him as a carrot to keep Harley Quinn focused on her mission. Latino-Review’s Kellvin Chavez goes deeper into the story noting his sources told him:

Waller has Joker moved to the prison as a means to keep Quinn in check. He spends most of the film in a cell, very much like Hannibal Lecter, until he breaks out in the end.

Boomerang (Jai Courtney) is already in the Squad and there is a contention between he and Deadshot, Deadshot killed his father.

The team is tasked on a mission to prevent ‘bio weaponry’ from being sold to Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) by a human trafficking gang. The gang is handing over the Enchantress to Luthor who it is implied wants her for magical abilities. They kidnap her and take her back to the prison where she is kept in an underground area, which has all sorts of genetic freaks imprisoned including a King Shark.

Hardy’s aversion to the script may have been that his character, Rick Flagg, would end up being the major villain in the film, and only after a daffy revelation that his father, Rick Flagg, Sr., wants to procure all the deadly weapons Waller has amassed.

Flagg isn’t quite that much of a nefarious character, nor is he a superior to Waller in the comics, so you have to wonder whether this draft of the script was to satisfy Hardy’s desires before he finally left. That could mean that this plot point could ultimately change.

Chavez reports that a draft of the script has been finished and is being circulated between several executives pending a rewrite. However, their sources tell them that the script ends with a prison riot where most of the villains escape, including the Joker.

I thought that the Suicide Squad wasn’t something that Warners could screw up, but somehow, they are making it more complicated than necessary. Why does Rick Flagg, the good guy, need to be a bad guy in a movie full of villains?

If Waller is just a ‘warden’ then are they avoiding her involvement in A.R.G.U.S.?

If you made it through these spoilers, what do you think about this possible version of the film?
