Another character is possibly revealed for James Gunn’s reboot of Suicide Squad, one that ought to be part of the team, as much as Harley, Deadshot, and King Shark.
Discussing Film initially shared the rumor the cold-hearted Killer Frost will be part of the cast that supposedly also comprises Peacemaker (with Dave Bautista leading the pack in getting that role), Ratcatcher, those mentioned above, and others.
Her background is right. Killer Frost started out as bad and is notorious for playing on that side. Her alliances included varied incarnations of The Injustice League (or Gang/Society).
Occasionally, Frost dipped her toe in the waters of good, mostly against her will with the Suicide Squad. Finding her groove there, she became an integral part of the team, and eventually turned over a new leaf.
She’s been a fixture on CW’s The Flash, played by Danielle Panabaker, from the beginning. Not always in control, she jumps from good to bad but manages to stay on the straight and narrow path.
As such a pivotal part of the show and Team Flash, Frost holds a spot in popular culture and the public consciousness. So it’s not hard to see her make the task force’s lineup. Gunn has probably seen a few episodes too, knowing her history.
Becoming part of the rebooted team is fitting if they really want to get it right this time, and could raise her profile to the level of Harley Quinn. Though, nothing is certain yet as we don’t know the plot details.
Who’s returning or being added isn’t a sure thing either. Idris Elba is reportedly in talks with Warner Bros. for Deadshot but his casting is unofficial. Proposed rogues making the team, like Poke-a-dot Man sound less than credible, but chagrinning Squad conscripts have a habit of being killed in action. He might be one that doesn’t make it.
Educated guess: he, Ratcatcher, and the other goofy teammates from a lower caste are bumped off, leaving it to Frost, Deadshot, King Shark, and Harley to complete the mission. One possibility, anything could happen.
What will happen is likely to be made public soon. James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad goes into production later this year and won’t interfere with Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
