15. Introducing Captain Boomerang
I remember something of an angry furore when it was announced that Jai Courney’s take (I still shudder when I think back to Die Hard 5) on Boomerang would make an appearance in the Suicide Squad. How could they adapt such a bizarre – not to mention controversial – character to the big screen? After all, in the comics he uses high-tech boomerangs to commit crimes and kill people. How do you make the believable?
However there’s something very manic about the character, like the nutter in the pub nobody wants to mess with – as can be seen in the shot where he’s screaming into a CCTV camera. If anything, there’s seem to be some sort of Chopper vibe going on with Jai Courtney’s performance – and not just because he’s Australian. If that’s the case, I’m not going to complain.
