It seems that Funko POP! figures are literally everywhere these days. These adorable, big headed figures seemed to be marketed after every major film and TV show that there is. Everything from Back to the Future to Marvel characters have a Funko POP! to call their own, so it should come as no surprise that one of the biggest movies of 2016, Suicide Squad, is also getting the Funko treatment.
Initially, these just seem like your everyday Funko POP! figures, but if you read into it a bit, does it reveal a character's death in Suicide Squad?
Theres A Few People Missing From The 'Suicide Squad' Funko POP! Line
Here we see concept art for The Joker, Harley Quinn, Deadshot, El Diablo, Katana, Rick Flag, Captain Boomerang and Killer Croc but there are a few key characters that are missing. Amanda Waller, Enchantress, and Slipknot aren't seen which has too make one wonder, will one of these characters die. Amanda Waller is unlikely to die as she is a key piece of the DC Universe, but Enchantress and Slipknot are a whole other story.
It has been speculated on for a while now that Slipknot will die pretty early and this may support that theory.
Is Slipknot Going To Die Early?
Not much has been said about Adam Beach's Slipknot character and the trailers that have been release may lead us to believe that he may meet his fate pretty early on in the film. While this is all speculation, the absence from the Funko POP! line only adds to that notion. Only time will tell, I sure hope that Slipknot sticks around for a while, he looks awesome!
Why Is Enchantress Left Out As Well?
Not only was Slipknot left out, Cara Delevingne's ultra popular character Enchantress is absent as well. Most of us thought that Enchantress was the villain of Suicide Squad but after the second trailer was released, it looks as if that is not the case. I really can't think of any reason as to why Enchantress isn't included, other than she dies or DC is pulling a Disney and doesn't feel that female characters are as marketable. Either way, the decision is a head scratcher because Enchantress is surely going to be one of the biggest parts of Suicide Squad. Whatever the case, I'm sure we will see an Enchantress Funko POP! down the line. I would love to see them and I know I will be collecting them all!
I can't wait to show you my toys!
