When it comes to The Suicide Squad, James Gunn has said that he loved the idea of putting a lot of under-the-radar characters in the movie (see: Polka Dot Man and Ratcatcher). He also loved the idea of creating a “sequel” to John Ostrander’s “Suicide Squad” run in the late-80s. The spirit of Ostrander’s run is in The Suicide Squad, but Gunn never intended to create a homage to it. Instead, he asked himself WWJOD (What Would John Ostrander Do) with these characters. 

If that wasn’t enough, Warner Bros also gave us our first sneak peek at some behind-the-scenes footage of The Suicide Squad. Check out the video below!
