The Suicide Squad, following David Ayer’s Suicide Squad of 2016, is the second live-action film based on the title of the comic book. James Gunn’s take seems to be more of a soft reboot of the original movie, and viewers need not watch The Suicide Squad released in 2018 to enjoy this 2021 movie.

The ability to roll out a variety of famous actors portraying even more famous historical characters is a huge benefit of visiting the origins of the under-cover organisation: Ralph Fiennes, Liam Neeson is Lord Kitchener, Rhys Ifans is Rasputin, Gemma Arterton is Mata Hari, and Tom Hollander is King George V, Kaiser Wilhelm II, and Tsar Nicholas II, the three monarchs who were cousins and despised each other.
