Superhero movies have taken over the box office in recent years, bringing many of our favorite comic book characters to life in spectacular fashion.
Marvel’s Avengers, X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, Transformers, Spider-Man, along with DC’s Batman and Superman, have all reached record-breaking success. And earlier this year, gun-toting anti-hero Deadpool literally blew box office numbers away.
Now it’s DC’s Suicide Squad’s turn to take the anti-hero genre to the big screen.
Roland Martin, host of NewsOne Now, recently sat down with the cast of Suicide Squad – which premieres in theaters this weekend – for a series of interviews.
Jared Leto, who reprises the iconic DC Comics super-villain Joker, told Martin Suicide Squad is fundamentally different from your regular superhero film: “It is an examination of imperfect people.”
He later added, “We’ve seen a lot of heroes and that’s great – it’s something to aspire to. I think it’s impossible to be these perfect icons, so there is something about the bad guys struggling to kind of do something good for a change that we all relate to.”
Watch Roland Martin talk with Will Smith, Viola Davis, Jared Leto, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Margot Robbie, Karen Fukuhara, J. Hernandez, and Director David Ayer about the highly anticipated Suicide Squad in the video clip above.
