New Story Info For James Gunn's THE SUICIDE SQUAD and it Could Also Include Killer Frost
There’s already been a list of colorful characters rumored to appear in James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. That list includes Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Deadshot (Idris Elba), Ratcatcher a.k.a Otis Flannegan, Nanaue a.k.a. King Shark, Polka-Dot Man a.k.a. Mister Polka Dot, and Peacemaker a.k.a. Christopher Smith. You can read more about these characters here.
There’s now a report of another character joining the roster. According to Discussing Film, Killer Frost will also be apart of the Suicide Squad in the film. She is a pretty powerful character and would make for a cool addition to the story.
Caitlin Snow a.k.a. Killer Frost possesses the power of cryokinesis. “She is able to absorb heat energy from virtually any source, store it in her body, and transmute it into ice. Through this, she can generate and control fields of cold, and create ice structures and weapons of various sizes. She can generate freezing gusts of wind, and reduce the body temperatures of those around her until they freeze to death. She is permanently covered in a layer of permafrost. A heat vampire, she is driven to consume the heat of others, which will generally kill them, in order to sustain her own life and to power her cryokinetic abilities; this need is very powerful and maddening. She possesses a genius-level intellect, and is particularly skilled in the fields of thermodynamics and mechanical engineering. Her status as a heat vampire leaves her with a critical weakness. In areas with little to no heat to absorb, her powers are effectively useless.”
As for the new story details, apparently the current draft of the script could “follow the team on a mission to the Middle East to stop Onslaught and infiltrate their headquarters in Qurac. This seems like a fitting type of story for the ‘Suicide Squad’ that will keep the stakes lower compared to the first film.”
None of this has been officially confirmed yet, but regardless, with James Gunn writing and directing the film, which is said to be a “total reboot”, I’m confident that it’s going to end up being an awesome movie that the fans will enjoy!
