Looking back Suicide Squad, there didn’t seem to be much salvageable once the credits stopped rolling. Thank goodness the folks at DC Comics thought otherwise because that means we’re getting The suicide squad. (Plus, the strategy of tacking on an article and pretending the first movie didn’t happen is a stroke of genius.) In the tradition of big-budget comic book movies, one of the moments the most animated of The suicide squad happens after the credit rollover. In case that is not enough as a disclaimer, from now on there will be spoilers abound. Seriously, if you haven’t watched this movie and are going to get worked up over the spoilers, this is the place to turn around. Go home. Shelter in place with a television connected to the Internet.
True to its slogan, “They die … to save the world”, the end of The suicide squad it’s a bit of a bloodbath. Death has come for Starro, the oversized alien starfish who terrorized the streets of Corto Maltese, in the form of rats. Polka-Dot Man, who had a beautifully heroic superhero moment before being crushed to death by Starro, has also been lost. Rick Flag put the pieces together and carried out Waller’s manic shenanigans before being pulled by Peacemaker. And then we lost Peacemaker via a (small) fast bullet from the Bloodsport pistol. It shows that patriotism isn’t just about listening to what Amanda Waller has to say.
The film’s ending features Bloodsport, Harley Quinn, Ratcatcher 2, and King Shark being airlifted from Corto Maltese, having made a deal with Waller so they can be freed (as long as they keep it a secret from her and the US government. were ultimately responsible for the terrors of Starro (RIP, my misunderstood starfish buddy).
Now we tackle these post-credit scenes. That’s a lot of bloodshed, even for a superhero movie, uh, super villain. And while I wish it was the sweet and precious Polka-Dot Man who survived the weight of a megaton of Starro’s arm, it was Peacemaker and Weasel who teetered out of The suicide squad living.
In the first post-credits scene, Weasel is seen on a dark beach. He was presumed dead after this particularly gruesome scene at the start of the film. I call it “The Bludgeon Beach”. Without anyone knowing whether he could swim or not, Weasel seemed more likely to be fish snacks than not, but by the end of the movie he takes a breath of air, spits water, and then waddles back to the forest. So here is. Stay out of the forest.
But then, at the end of the credits, the real shocker is dropped. Waller sent two agents to retrieve someone who was pulled from the rubble, barely alive. John Economos and Emilia Harcourt, who helped keep Waller at bay as the Suicide Squad rescued Corto Maltese, turn the corner to see Peacemaker lying in a bed. When the doctor asks why they want Peacemaker, Harcourt replies, “Just to save this fucking world … that’s it.”
Love him or hate him (you hate him, and that’s good), Peacemaker’s grand survival story is a game-changer for the upcoming HBO Max series based on the character’s origins. At the end of last summer, the Suicide Squad the spinoff series was announced with John Cena attached, but with Peacemaker’s “death” in The suicide squad, the origin story seemed like a prequel that would simply explore its early days. Now with this incredible bounce, expect Peacemaker (due out in 2022) to jump between where things start and how those details affect everything he’s going to do next.
