We now only have two tantalizing months to wait until Suicide Squad is finally released. But while the disappointment of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice has raised the stakes of the film, anticipation ahead of the villainous hybrid remains unwavering. We still don’t know too much about what actually brings the Suicide Squad together, but the film’s producer Charles Roven has now revealed that when Joker, Deadshot, Harley Quinn, et al merge they first have to take on a strange posse of monsters named the Eyes of the Adversary.
The Eyes of the Adversary have actually already been seen in Suicide Squad’s trailers. But it’s been neigh on impossible to actually get a clear view of these peculiar creatures, which seem to have the size and physique of human beings, but are covered in goo. Suicide Squad’s producer Charles Roven has now divulged further details regarding the Eyes Of The Adversary while talking to Total Film Magazine, via ComicBook.com, admitting that they’re somewhat peculiar customers.
Roven explained that after the Sucide Squad has been brought in by Amanda Waller, the Eyes Of The Adversary are one of the things that they come across. But they're all flummoxed by how they actually got there, especially since "they're weird and dangerous" but are, for some reason, "wearing military uniforms."
Charles Roven went on to tease that "nobody’s safe" from the Eyes, but then decided to keep completely mum about anything else regarding Suicide Squad’s villain. But what we can glean is that there is probably someone above these strange monsters, because if they’re the "Eyes" then there must be an "Adversary" that they report back to or serve.
There have been various rumors about Suicide Squad’s antagonist, who wreaks so much mayhem in the fictional metropolis of Midway City that Amanda Waller decides to bring the worst of the worst together to defeat them. Various rumors have pointed to Cara Delevingne’s Enchantress as the big-baddy of the film. A further hint in that direction was added with the revelation that the villain uses "a devastating supernatural force" while there were also sightings of "black secretions jutting out of a long crater on the floor." It still remains to be seen if she can create this kind of magical destruction, though.
Thankfully, Suicide Squad’s release date is now closing in rapidly, and we’ll finally get to see Will Smith’s Deadshot, Jared Leto’s Joker, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag, Jai Courtney’s Boomerang, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Killer Croc on screen from August 5.
