The Suicide Squad Ending Teases New Beginnings for DCEU

Squad Members: The Suicide Squad Ending

James Gunn’s Suicide Squad comes with two teams sent on a mission to erase all the shreds of evidence leading to Project Starfish. The superheroes in this movie are divided into two teams to complete the task. One of this team includes members – Captain Boomerang, Blackguard, Weasel, Savant, and Harley Quinn, who are just a diversion. At the same time, the other team consists of King Shark, Bloodsport, Ratcatcher 2, Peacemaker, Rick Flag, and Polka Dot. 

While our first team receives a hot welcome from the enemy army, they get dispersed as soon as they step on the island. The other team manages to establish a strong foothold and find their way into the sinister laboratory. The laboratory runs secret experiments on humans and also houses a starfish-like giant creature, Starro. 

Harley Quinn: The Suicide Squad Ending

Events later, amongst the insane fights and blood bath, it is revealed that the US Government was behind the horrifying experiments being performed on the humans. The fundamental goal of the mission is to destroy all the evidence to save the US Government from facing an embarrassing situation. Like any other superhero movie, the revelation of the truth causes a rift in the team where the Peacemaker wants to continue the mission to keep the peace alive while others want to bring out the truth in front of the world. 

Flash forward to the fighting with Starro, many superheroes have died, while Starro breaks out of the lab and moves ahead to spray his mind-controlling minions on the Island. However, his plans are interrupted when Bloodsport, Harley Quinn, King Shark, and other remaining heroes start to attack him. 

Amanda Waller: The Suicide Squad Ending

Fueled with anger against the squad, Waller decides to ignite the bomb and kill the squad members, but sadly her plan fails when she is knocked out with a golf club by Belle Reve. The Suicide Squad members start attacking Starro with their powers, but nothing seems to help until Harley Quinn gets in the field and stabs him in the eye. As she hits him in the eye, Ratcatcher 2’s army of rats invade the creature and kill him. 

Before dying, Starro reveals that he wanted to live a peaceful life in the galaxy amongst the cosmos. Still, he was captured and experimented on by the US Government and the citizens of Corto Maltese. The movie ends with Bloodsport retrieving the evidence that proves the US Govt’s involvement as leverage for the safety of the Suicide Squad team.

In another post-credits scene, it is revealed that Peacemaker survives Bloodsport’s bullet and is seen recovering in a hospital. While in the hospital, Peacemaker is said to go on another mission by two of Waller’s employees, John and Emilia, to save the freaking world. While Peacemaker will return with HBO Max’s new series that will focus on his journey, it is hard to say what will happen to the future of The Suicide Squad.

For me, writing is something that helps me escape from reality for a while. Even though I am an Engineer, I find my comfort from chaos while I write. I love telling people about my stories, stories that play in my mind only. When I am writing, there is no limit to how far I can go swimming in this deep ocean of words. Reading and writing are the two things that help in organizing my messed up thoughts in a formative way. Come along on this journey with me as I write and you read the stories that I have to tell!
