The Divergent Series star Jai Courtney has revealed some exciting details about the upcoming DC comics movie Suicide Squad. Courtney is set to appear in the movie as George Harkness a.k.a. "Captain Boomerang," a violent thug from Australia who uses a variety of high-tech boomerangs to commit crimes and fight the Flash.
Speaking to IGN, the Australian actor revealed that Captain Boomerang's costume will be unique to the superhero genre. He said,
"I’ve had a few fittings, but the costume is in development as we speak. It’s not going to look like anything that’s been done before, and I think this whole world will look a lot different than anything else."
Interesting news. I can't wait to see what he means by that statement.
More importantly, though, Courtney did his very best to play down a possible appearance in The Flash movie (estimated release 2018), but couldn't quite manage it. When the reporter asked, "Have there been any discussions with DC that Boomerang might be involved in The Flash movie?", Courtney replied,
"I’m not withholding anything, but that is a dialogue that hasn’t been opened yet."
"I'm not withholding anything..." Hmm, what do you think? Does that sound convincing to you? It's hard to doubt his sincerity, but The Flash is a long way off. It does sound like an interesting possibility, though.
