Flula Borg says they couldn’t handle the dopeness after seeing The Suicide Squad screening. So far, everyone who has seen the film and reacted has had mostly positive things to say about it after! It certainly is helping build excitement for the film.
Borg plays Javelin in the Suicide Squad sequel/reboot. He stars in it alongside stars like Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn and Idris Elba‘s Bloodsport, amongst a cast of several others. This includes King Shark, who as you may have guessed, is a shark.
Some of the other stars who have seen The Suicide Squad had really positive things to say about it. These things range from calling director James Gunn a “genius” to saying “Y’all ain’t ready” and we think that may be the truth.
“AHHHH!!! I have just viewed #TheSuicideSquad at a screening and my Brains and Heart could not handle the DOPENESS,” Borg tweeted Saturday. “Prepare Youself [sic] for an ABSOLUTE GENIE CREATION from @JamesGunn!!” Correcting the “genie” typo in a followup tweet, the German actor added, “*GENIUS creation scheisse (no genies in the film, sorry fans of [I Dream of Jeannie star] barbara eden).”
Borg has previously spoken about joining the DCEU.
“It’s a fever-dream. I feel like somebody may have spiked my water actually several months ago, and I don’t think any of this is happening,” Borg previously told ComicBook.com about landing a role in The Suicide Squad as a javelin-wielding former Olympic athlete. “If you did magic and were a magician and said this was all a joke, I would believe you, and I would not be sad. I would just say, “Hey, good show. You got me.”
The Suicide Squad synopsis reads:
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.
At any rate, Borg couldn’t handle the dopeness and we may not be able to either!
