These Suicide Squad Character Videos Are Like Getting a Baseball Bat Made of LSD to the Face

Each and every misfit, monster, and killer starring in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie has received a quick character profile video, complete with eye-chewingly insane animation. They’re pretty fun, but there are also a few secrets hidden about the film for those willing to peruse all 11 of them.


Warning: You’re going to have to listen to the same 15 or so seconds of The Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz” a lot if you watch of all these things. Just FYI.

Here’s what I learned:

• Amanda Waller will clearly be getting her own hands dirty as she’s shown firing a giant gun at somebody


• Boomerang has a think for pink unicorns

• The El Diablo of the DC movie-verse’s body temperature is 666 degrees, which is totally awesome

• Killer Croc is apparently a white alligator man and not a green alligator man

• Rick Flag is boring

• The Enchantress may spend part of the movie cosplaying as a Goth version of Kim Cattrell as Lo Pan’s bride from Big Trouble in Little China


• Slipknot is so boring he makes Rick Flag seem exciting

• Katana does not care for “Ballroom Blitz,” apparently

• Will Smith did not enjoy making promotional video in the slightest

• The El Diablo of the DC movie-verse’s body temperature is 666 degrees, which is totally awesome impossible.

The water in his body would flash boil and he would explode. Even if he used some high tech coolant instead of deadly dihydrogen monoxide, the proteins in his brain would denature around 105F or so and the fat would render from his body just while standing around. I mean, that’s a pretty decent temperature to sear a steak at. Even if that didn’t happen, how would he radiate all the waste heat without injuring the people around him?

I know, this should not bother me since he can literally shoot fire out of his hands which should require some kind of fuel and an ignition source, and where does that come from? But it does. It is also why I don’t think too hard about the physiology of zombies. They don’t really work if you start to think about them at all.
