James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad will see Jai Courtney reprise his role as Captain Boomerang from the first film.
While it definitely looks like the team is getting a shake-up, one character who will be returning is Courtney’s Captain Boomerang, a wily Australian thief with a talent for throwing sharpened boomerangs with deadly precision. Speaking o Business Insider, Courtney confirmed, “We’re getting ready to shoot in a few months’ time. There’s not much else I can reveal about it but, yeah, you’ll be seeing Boomerang back for sure.“
Of course, we don’t know in what capacity Captain Boomerang will be returning, and some fans have theorized that Gunn’s movie will kill off members of the previous Suicide Squad en masse at the start of the movie, resulting in a need for new recruits.
It’s not clear at this time how major of a role Courtney’s will be, but his statements make it pretty clear that he is going to return for the film, which will reportedly also feature Ratcatcher, King Shark, Polka-Dot Man and Peacemaker.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 6, 2021.
