“The Suicide Squad:” How James Gunn Completed His Mission

“I have loved the Suicide Squad since I was very young,” explains the film’s writer-director James Gunn says. “They’re one of my favorite groups of comic book anti-heroes. I’m always interested in people who have not lived their best lives and have an opportunity to become something better — a chance at redemption.

“Some of them take it, some don’t; it’s humanity in all its various degrees of morality, and I get to put it on screen in a really grand, exciting way,” he adds, “with aliens and monsters and a walking shark.”
