NO Military Grade explosives are incredibly safe and are designed to only explode when required. Take C4 (or Composition-4 to give it its correct name) - Wikipedia C-4 is very stable and insensitive to most physical shocks. C-4 cannot be detonated by a gunshot or by dropping it onto a hard surface. It does not explode when set on fire or exposed to ...

Those aren't fireworks.....they're flares used to decoy heat-seaking missiles. There had already been one helicopter downed by a missile. They were just taking precautions. Wikipedia A flare or decoy flare is an aerial infrared countermeasure used by a plane or helicopter to counter an infrared homing ("heat-seeking") surface-to-air missile or air-to-...

The full quote is "I am the Light - The Way". If you look at larger variation of the promo image you used, you can see that the same quote is etched into the barrel of his gun: Most likely, this is a mis-quote of a famous quote from the Bible, specifically John 14:6: Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the ...

It was acid. Just not a melt your face off type acid. It bleached their skin and discolored their hair and clothing. It likely also affected them mentally, but it's debatable if it made them crazy or just proved that they were. It is implied to be the same Ace chemical factory that the Joker is said to have fall in to make him as pale green as we know him. ...

Because he regrets not killing Batman when he had the chance. He chose not to fight Batman because his daughter asked. But as a result, he went to prison, where he was no longer able to see his daughter. Even worse, Waller used his daughter as leverage to force him to join the Suicide Squad. In Deadshot's mind, all of that is Batman's fault. If he had ...

That scene is homage to her counterpart from The New 52 reboot of DC comics: Following DC's 2011 relaunch of its titles, Harley Quinn's costume and appearance is fully revamped. Harley Quinn has a more revealing costume, altered hair color, and bleached skin. Her hair is half-red and half-black, like the jester cap of her previous incarnation, ...

No official explanation AFAIK, but this theory seems likely: It’s also pleasant to see that Ayer and his costume team have realized that the actual mechanics of placing an augmented eye… device into the scope of a rifle could prove a little clunky, or redundant. As a result, it will be Smith’s left eye sporting the visual boost. Either that, or ...

'Military Grade' does not really define what the explosive is made of, and that is what determines how it detonates. Some explosives require fire, some impact, some a chemical reaction, etc. Many nitrogen based explosives can explode with physical force. I've seen nitrogen triiodide explode at the touch of a feather. TNT is also know to explode if not ...

The rumor/fan-fiction was Second Robin Jason Todd was not killed by the psychotic villain after all but instead turned into him. Fans have cited ‘evidence’ in marketing material released during the run-up to Suicide Squad’s, claiming that The Joker’s bullet hole tattoos match up with puncture marks on the graffitied Robin costume seen hanging in ...

No, Joker was not a former Robin. Rather, Joker was responsible for murdering the former Robin, which we saw hints of in Dawn of Justice and then got confirmed in Suicide Squad. (Harley Quinn was arrested as Joker's accomplice to that murder.) The characterization of Joker in that movie is different from most of the others we have seen on-screen, but Joker'...

The film takes place at some point after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but before Justice League. Early in the film Amanda Waller states that a special team needs to be created due to recent events involving Superman. She and others consider him a threat, and that other metahumans need to be formed into a team to protect the US and her interests. Per ...

Same way Amanda Waller survived her equally deadly crash. Luck and plot armor and a side of too stubborn to die. The specifics are not explained in any media at this time.

In the introduction Deadshot was not referred as Greatest Assassin. But referred as: Assassin for hire/ Human Arsenal Most wanted Hitman Man who never misses And we do have Deathstroke in DCEU First Ben Affleck shares cryptic footage of Batman villain Deathstroke And then it was confirmed that Joe Manganiello is Deathstroke in Ben Affleck’s Batman ...

No, he is not. The Suicide Squad is a group of "minor" villains from the various DC comic lines (many of them were Batman, Flash, or Green Arrow villains). There have been several incarnations of them, but the best-known is the most recent one run by Amanda Waller. She takes villains that are currently incarcerated and sends them out on dangerous missions, ...

Yes But only certain ones. In Mythbusters Episode 216, they detonate a hand grenade with a .308 rifle. http://mythresults.com/fire-in-the-hole

Wouldn't have been a movie. The upcoming Suicide Squad film will be Harley Quinn's silver screen debut. Could be possible you are thinking of the first Lego Batman film, which does have Harley Quinn and a couple other Suicide Squad characters in it. A couple other possibilities are Batman: Assault on Arkham and Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker. That ...

According to an interview with Director David Ayer and Empire magazine: "[Pinky] was actually intended to be a piece of set decoration in one of our office building sets. I thought [Boomerang] needed a little something kind of fun and silly and it kept appearing throughout the film. It became a bit of a mascot. Yes, [he’s a] Brony. Which is fine. I think ...

While the Movie gives no answer on that front, the Suicide Squad Novelization, written by Marv Wolfman, actually does provide information on that front. In it, Incubus (Enchantress' brother) is reffered to as both Inti and Kinich Ahau, who are respectively the Sun Gods of the Incans and the Mayans. What Goddess Enchantress herself is, however, isn't ...

It's really fairly simple. In Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Bruce Wayne learns about the existence of various "meta-humans", including a man who can move incredibly fast, from some files he gains from Lex Luthor. In Suicide Squad, Bruce uses his contacts within the Government to find out the identity of the person who can move incredibly fast. It ...

It's not just weapons, as has been pointed out in a few reviews. Among other items, there are the flowers you can see clearly in the GIF above and, further out, baby gear. These are the things important to him before he goes out to rescue Harley Quinn, laid out in his own particular order, objects of both life and death. This list of Easter Eggs mentions it ...

Or the helicopter crashed into a building, the front exploded, but the back was wedged in the building and undamaged, so the joker survived, albeit with a burnt face, as seen in the deleted scene.

are the guards scared that she would break the things and turn it into a weapon to kill someone with Yes.

The director recently explained: David Ayer recently opened up regarding the iconic psycho's "damaged" tattoo, and how it specifically relates to the death of Jason Todd a.k.a Robin. He elaborated: This is sort of my personal thing and maybe less about a larger connection. But Joker killed Robin and Batman basically smashes his teeth out and ...

He escaped. There was no ejection seat as the seat is still there and the roof is intact. He obviously swam away while Batman pulled Harley out from the front windshield where she was stuck.

It was something of a mascot. David Ayer believed that Boomerang needed something fun to lighten the mood of his character. “I thought [Boomerang] needed a little something kind of fun and silly and it kept appearing throughout the film. It became a bit of a mascot,” Ayer then explained, telling fans the unicorn was meant to represent all things George “...

He escaped and saved his life leaving Harley Quinn behind. It seems that this JOKER is also good at escape art.

Harley was pushed, she didn't jump. She felt a Stokholm Syndrome type of "love" after a sociopath like Joker carefully made her fall for him. Also, he forced her to go through electroshock therapy. She was pushed through being manipulated. In the source comics, she was literally pushed. Joker, in this interpretation jumped in against his own judgement, as ...

One theory that's been floated in various circles on the internet, but neither confirmed nor denied by the makers of the movie, is that Joker's survival might have been the result of Harley Quinn's deal with Enchantress (script lifted from here). HARLEY: Hey lady? I lost my Puddin'. But you can get him back, right? ENCHANTRESS: I can, my dear. Anything ...

During the helicopter crash scene when Harley Quinn falls on the building, the scene remains there and we see Harley Quinn's somersault for a few seconds and then switch back to the crashing helicopter. Maybe during that time Joker also jumped from the helicopter to some safe place before the helicopter crashed. And rememberer that Joker is a famous escape ...
