It wasn’t too long ago that we, the DC fanatics and long awaiting members of this community, received our first official look at the full Suicide Squad team in action. Now, unfortunately, we as fans always expect the absolute best out of something, whether it be movies, TV, cartoons, comics, etc. And, we always end up being disappointed. Our fist look at Suicide Squad was one example. Some people weren’t happy about Will Smith’s Deadshot, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, or even Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang. However, all those things can be looked past if it wasn’t for Killer Croc. I’m on the fans side…the guy is way to small and human-like! Where’s the crocodile action? I get that the film is based on this new style of DC movies (dark and erie) but you need to stick to the famous Batman formula. Grr. Alright people, let’s talk about if Killer Croc in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad will evolve to his infamous primal form that we so much love him as.
By the looks of it, two things could be happening with this character. For one, this could most definitely be his final form due to the movie universe being so eerie and serious now. If so, that was a bad move, Director Ayer. I don’t want to dwell on this too much, but DC movies have to escape this pit of darkness and seriousness. It’s just a trap. Take some tips from Marvel who stick to the formula.
But, anyway, lets move on. As for my second theory… he could evolve throughout the entire film and this photograph of the team that we got some weeks ago is from the early stages of the film when the team is, possibly, heading out for their first mission. Now, I must note, that we are not entirely sure what the alias of this Croc will be, most likely the Waylon Jones version. But, again, that’s not final by any means. Anyways, here’s my theory: With the government, and Amanda Waller, performing top secret DNA-forming tests on certain convicted patients, such as Waylon Jones for this manner, there is bound to be mistakes, miscalculations, errors, and, of course, monsters in the mix. And so, with a testing gone wrong, Waylon Jones is mutated severely (I’m not sure if they’ll include the whole crocodile DNA thing). His skin is now impenetrable, his strength quadrupled and his anger heightened. But, why throw him in the trash? Nope, let’s just place him on the Suicide Squad team. Yay for Jones. And so, throughout the film, the team goes on plenty of dangerous and life threatening missions, whether it be to go after the Joker, stop some international terrorists or even settle some personal vendettas Waller has. Croc isn’t to fond of this. He’s a monster now, and his team doesn’t embrace that. Instead, they mock him….especially Deadshot. And so, during the final battle of the film, battling whatever the villain of the movie is, Croc decides it is time for some respect. It’s time to teach his team, and his officers, a little lesson. And so, with Waller’s facility under attack and fully exposed, Croc takes advantage of the situation. Now, I don’t have any real thoughts regarding the science behind this, but I assume Croc will consume or possibly inject some other formula that will give him the ability to evolve into his full, primal, Batman-proof state.
Now, if he does evolve, it is most likely going to happen at the end of the film, to provide a little teaser for a sequel, or possibly an independent Croc film. Independence is unlikely for Croc, though. He isn’t that popular just yet.
Anyways guys, I’m really excited to see Killer Croc in action and on the field in 2016. It should really be amazing. I just can’t wait to see how he interacts with the rest of the team, how he messes around with Deadshot and, possibly, double crosses Amanda Waller to evolve into his most classic and fan-needed form.
