Can’t wait to watch the “Suicide Squad” episode of “Arrow”? If that’s the case, the “DC All Access” web series is looking out for you — this week’s episode (released Tuesday, March 18) includes several interviews with “Arrow” cast members about the comic-friendly episode.
Obviously, there’s an interview with David Ramsey, since Diggle is at the heart of “Suicide Squad.” Did you know that Diggle is the first “Arrow” TV character to be adapted and added to a DC comic? He is indeed that cool. Also cool? Diggle gets his own flashback to Afghanistan in the episode.
“Arrow” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg makes an interesting point as well — “Suicide Squad” is only possible because of Oliver’s no-killing efforts in Season 2. While Floyd Lawton/Deadshot did appear in the first season, his survival was a matter of escaping at that point. Instead of being caught in Season 2, Deadshot would be dead under Oliver Queen’s old kill-everything policy.
As it is, the Squad has assembled and will head out to save the day and die, hopefully in that order.
“Suicide Squad” airs Wednesday, March 19 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
