David Ayer's Suicide Squad is chock full of awesome DC characters. Some, like Deadshot (Will Smith) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), completely get the spotlight. Others, like Batman (Ben Affleck) and Joker (Jared Leto), get relegated to side roles. However, there's one awesome Suicide Squad cameo that's so quick (pun intended) that you may miss it if you don't pay attention. The fight between Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) from Suicide Squad has just surfaced online, and you look like you need a reminder of how utterly awesome it is. Check it out below!
That clip just surfaced online, and it serves as a phenomenal reminder of what DC did right in Suicide Squad. The video provides an introduction to Captain Boomerang as a character by showcasing his abilities, backstory, and role on Task Force X. Roughly one minute into the clip, we get a glimpse of the banker robbery sequence in Suicide Squad (which was actually directed by Zack Snyder) in which the Australian supervillain is captured by the Scarlet Speedster. In true Barry Allen fashion, the red-clad hero even takes a moment to observe Boomerang's weapon and remark upon the fact that there's clearly "no honor among thieves."
Although these two characters don't even technically share the screen with one another during this sequence, it's an awesome promise of what's to come during the future of the DCEU. Flash and Boomerang are iconic enemies, and this scene really seems to set up a future conflict in which the boomerang-wielding bad guy goes on to recruit other Central City villains to join his team, The Rogues. With that in mind, the introduction of Captain Boomerang into the DCEU only represents the beginning; we wouldn't be surprised to see notable baddies like Captain Cold, Reverse-Flash, or even The Trickster pop up in this silver screen universe by the time The Flash solo movie debuts.
This scene actually highlights something that DC has done a really good job with so far in the DCEU: cameos. Although there's a good debate to be had about the quality of DC's last three films, it's difficult to argue against the fact that the comic book giant has really developed a beautifully interwoven cinematic universe. Characters pop in and out of each other's films with impeccable nimbleness, and this Flash cameo really hammers that idea home.
We have a feeling that the rivalry between The Flash and Captain Boomerang will only continue to get more and more intense as the DCEU wears on. The DC cinematic universe will press onward when Wonder Woman hits theaters next summer on June 2, 2017. Stay tuned for more details!
