Breaking Down Every Character From The Suicide Squad
The Suicide Squad will feature a slew of new-to-the-silver-screen faces and we've got the scoop on who they are and what they do. Here's a breakdown of every new character in The Suicide Squad roll call.
When Idris Elba's name first cropped up in connection with The Suicide Squad, it was as a reported replacement for Will Smith's Deadshot. Smith, who appeared as the smart-mouthed assassin in David Ayer's Suicide Squad, had to drop out of Gunn's project due to scheduling conflicts. Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment executives may have initially wanted to have Deadshot in the follow-up no matter what, but soon, it was confirmed that Elba wasn't going to take Smith's spot after all. Instead, he'd be playing an entirely different character not yet seen on the silver screen.
DC FanDome confirms that Elba is playing Bloodsport in The Suicide Squad. Three different people have taken on the Bloodsport moniker in the DC comics, but Elba is playing the original: Robert DuBois, who first appeared in print in Superman Vol. 2 #4. DuBois suffers a mental breakdown when he learns that, because he was too scared to fight himself, his brother took his place in the Vietnam War and ended up permanently injured. After one of Lex Luthor's lackeys convinces DuBois that Superman is the person he needs to exact revenge upon, DuBois takes on the name Bloodsport and starts murdering his way through Metropolis with kryptonite bullets, before he's ultimately defeated by Superman.
It's probably unlikely that Elba's Bloodsport will experience this exact arc in The Suicide Squad, but there's a chance that certain elements of it will make their way into the characterization.
Michael Rooker, who played Yondu in the first two films in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, has a plum role in The Suicide Squad as Brian Durlin, a spoiled millionaire who moves to Gotham City in hopes of becoming a vigilante much like Batman. Working under the name Savant, Durlin is turned away from vigilantism by Batman himself. This motivates Savant to become a professional blackmailer going on to do such outrageous acts as kidnapping Black Canary and overthrowing the Gotham mafia with the help of Huntress. At one point in the comics, Savant is even offered a place on the Birds of Prey team.
However, the New 52 comics rebooted Savant in September 2011, and the version of the character seen in that run is almost definitely the one we're getting in The Suicide Squad. The recent comics depict Savant as an extremely amoral, and lethally effective, member of the Suicide Squad.
Polka-Dot Man is a silly-looking villain who's originally an enemy of Batman. Born Abner Krill and originally known as Mr. Polka-Dot, Polka-Dot Man made his print debut in Detective Comics #300. Polka-Dot Man centers his entire modus operandi around spots and dots and acts mostly as a low-level rogue who does all he can to capture Batman's attention and prove he's just as clever and capable as the beloved superhero.

    OMG NOOO THE GUY WITH THE WEIRD SPIKEY HEAD THING _IS_ THE THINKER?!? I thought he was creepy cuz he reminded me of DeVoe, but if there's gonna be a DeVoe, all I can say is... DeNoe. I'm still traumatised by season 4 of The Flash T.T I don't know which Flash villain I'm more traumatised by- Savitar or DeVoe. I really hope Gunn is gonna make this movie hilarious enough for me to not panic ;-;
