The Suicide Squad Synopsis Teases A Location Not Unknown To DC Fans

The Suicide Squad trailer

The Suicide Squad now has an official synopsis! Does that mean we can have trailer now, Mr. Gunn?

The synopsis from Warner Bros. is as follows for the not a sequel, not a reboot of 2016’s Suicide Squad:

Welcome to hell — a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese.

Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and- destroy mission with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.

Catch that classic DC locale? Corto Maltese! Sends shivers down this DC fan’s spine. In the comics, Corto Maltese is a small island in South America. Always in conflict, in Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, President Reagan sends Superman to subdue an uprising, as the island has become an important factor in the Cold War. We send Superman and the USSR sends a nuclear missile that has repercussions as far away as Gotham.

My bet is the team needs to extract someone before the island is nuked, as a nod to the comic. Adding the tension that perhaps the entire team could die if they fail.

The Suicide Squad will premiere on HBO Max the same day it hits theaters on August 6th.
