The Suicide Squad writer-director James Gunn has revealed that Warner Bros. gave him free rein over killing off characters in the upcoming DCEU movie.
Taking to Twitter, Gunn retweeted a fan who pondered which members of Task Force X were likely to survive the movie, alongside the cover image to the December 2020 issue of Empire magazine, which features the entire ensemble cast gathered together. Gunn then posed the question to his own Twitter followers, asking them which two characters they thought were most likely to stay alive.
No character was protected by DC. They gave me carte blanche
