Based on this reveal, it’s clear that Task Force X’s new mission will be a unique adventure. The R-rated nature of The Suicide Squad was previously teased by Rick Flag actor Joel Kinnaman, and it looks like the dangerous setting could heavily influence that aspect. This is on top of Flula Borg’s remark about massive explosions from the film, seemingly hinting that the Nazi-era prison is heavily guarded and unwelcoming to outsiders.
Reddit user 20athrowawayaccount uncovered interesting tidbits about The Suicide Squad from the latest issue of Empire Magazine. It was revealed that Task Force X will embark on an “entirely new, sentence-reducing suicide mission” in a fictional Latin American island named “Corto Maltese.”
While sitting down with Empire, The Suicide Squad producer Peter Safran shared that the team has to destroy a “Nazi-era prison” called Jotunheim:
There they have to destroy a Nazi-era prison and laboratory named Jotunheim where political prisoners were held and experimentations took place.
It remains to be seen what brings the team to Corto Maltese, but it’s likely that Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller is up to no good once again, potentially sending Task Force X to retrieve another mysterious asset. During 2016’s Suicide Squad, it was revealed that the person that the team is trying to save was Waller herself, and it’s safe to say that it is unlikely that Gunn will repeat that plot point again.
