Male, The suicide group was a lot of fun. Gory, blood-soaked, hyper-violently funny, but it was a bit of its beauty- it was as much a dark comedy as a R-rated action flick. But there was once a scene in the film’s script that would have made The suicide group much, much darker, to a point that would have deeply affected people’s enjoyment of the film.
In an interview with Cinema mix, Manager James Gunn described the scene that would have appeared near the end of the film: “By the end of the film, Ratcatcher 2 had … smuggled in and escaped with all that information from Jotunheim, and the rest of the group did not know about it. And [Amanda] Waller blew his head as they walked back to the jail! At this point, Harley is trying to talk Bloodsport—Bloodsport is going crazy because he is associated with this person, like a daughter. And he’s getting mad, and Harley is actually in a weird way kind of trying to talk Bloodsport into just letting go. But Bloodsport ends up shooting Waller …. right under the heart with one of the exploding bullets we see Peacemaker use earlier in the film. And so now she has to do what he says. ”
Yes, that’s not good. As Gunn mentions, the film’s heart is the father-daughter-esque relationship that develops between the cold-hearted Bloodsport (Idris Elba) and Ratcatcher II (Daniela Melchior). And when Ratcatcher gets a flashback showing her sweet relationship with her fatherly father, played by Taika Waititi, she’s also the most likeable character in the movie on a mile. Hell, even Harley Quinn does not come close because her popularity is so high that we all know in our hearts that she is pretty much immortal. Killing Ratcatcher off would be heartbreaking alone, and it would have seriously soured people’s thoughts about the end of the film and thus as a whole. But for Waller to murder her after she’s back in custody – apparently “in good health” – it would just be outrageous. It would feel like a betrayal made by the story itself. It would have sucked.
Luckily, Gunn realized the scene was sucking, and he realized it early on. It was cut before the last draft, and he explained why: “It was just too dark for me. It was really just too dark. “Gunn reveals more details about the scene here on interview, which is worth a look.
I think I tell a lot of people that it was unique choice not to kill the cutest character in your murder movie, instead of leaving dying for TDK, Blackguard, Savant and the rest of the B team. (Mostly.)
