Jai Courtney All Set to Return In The Suicide Squad as Captain Boomerang

While lots of people look at Digger Harkness as the Flash Villain, one can argue that his role as Captain Boomerang in The Suicide Squad was sort of interesting too! This character has been associated with the Suicide Squad since the 1980s when the group was originally re-conceptualized. Therefore, Digger Harkness’s role which was played by Jai Courtney was made a part of the movie Suicide Squad that was released in the year 2016. While for some this might be meh news, some people would actually love to hear that role as Captain Boomerang in The Suicide Squad is returning with a few other ex-characters to Task Force X, The Suicide Squad, which is all set to be released on August 6, 2021.

Although it is early to say whether this film is going to be a sequel or a reboot, we can say for sure that the filming of this movie has finally started! One thing that added to our confidence about this statement is Jai Courtney’s photo that he posted on his official Instagram with the caption “Incoming #suicidesquad #captainboomerang”.

Boy oh boy, the look on Jai Courtney’s face is definitely telling us that it’s going to be one hell of a movie and that he’s all set to get back in action!

If you look at it, Captain Boomerang’s character in the Suicide Squad has been detested for his faint-hearted and nasty personality but somehow he has stayed as a part of the squad for the longest time now! Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang was quite the reason the movie had a comedic side to it. We are thinking that is the reason why he is returning to the screens as part of the squad.

So basically, if you remember Captain Boomerang was the only member of the squad to not receive any benefits for giving defeat to Enchantress and Incubus in Midway City. We can’t say for sure if things are going to change for him if he remains to be part of the team. But it’s sort of confusing to think whether he’s been imprisoned the entire time or did he get back to the world outside and was eventually sent back to Belle Reve.

Guess who’s coming back with Jai Courtney to the set of The Suicide Squad?

  1. Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn
  2. Viola Davis – Amanda Waller
  3. Joel Kinnaman – Rick Flag

This means that we are going to be seeing a lot of new faces in Task Force X, The Suicide Squad. The bad news is that Will Smith won’t be appearing this time because of some scheduling conflicts. We know, it’s sad. Firstly it was said that Idris Elba was going to replace him, but soon after a statement was released saying that Elba is going to be a completely new character, so no Deadshot this time.
