'The Suicide Squad': Which Supervillains Die in the DC Film?

The Suicide Squad is as blood-drenched as you might expect from its R-rating.

And plot armor clearly doesn't exist in James Gunn's supervillain flick, as no character was safe from death.

How big a name they were doesn't matter, with characters dying left and right in service of the plot.

So who exactly was subjected to Gunn's culling of the DC Universe?

How many characters were killed in the opening act?

The movie begins with members of Task Force X arriving at the island nation of Corto Maltese, after being deployed there to infiltrate and destroy the lab Jotunheim, where Project Starfish is underway.

Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), Rick Flag (Joel Kinnaman), Captain Boomerang (Jai Courtney), TDK (Nathan Fillion), Mongal (Mayling Ng), Javelin (Flula Borg), Savant (Michael Rooker), Blackguard (Pete Davidson) and Weasel (Sean Gunn) arrive on one side of the beach.

When they arrive, though, the crew are met with a huge army after Blackguard sold them out, and the soldiers mercilessly open fire on the villains.

Blackguard is first to die, despite being an informant, with Mongal, TDK, Captain Boomerang, and Javelin also getting killed by the Corto Maltesean armed forces.

Savant attempted to run away from the fight, but did not last long as Viola Davis' character Amanda Waller sets off the explosive device in his brain, while Weasel appeared to drown before he even got onto the beach.

Harley Quinn and Rick Flag are the only two to make it off the beach, with the former being taken by the army and the latter by rebel fighters.

The second half of the Task Force X team, Bloodsport (Idris Elba), King Shark (Sylvester Stallone), Ratcatcher 2 (Daniela Melchior), Polka-Dot Man (David Dastmalchian) and Peacemaker (John Cena), safely infiltrate the country.

Who was killed during the attack on Jotunheim?

The seven members of the Suicide Squad all make it to the final act, where they infiltrate the secret lab holding Starro the Conqueror.

They get in after capturing The Thinker (Peter Capaldi), who reveals that the experiments were actually started by the U.S. government.

Flag decides to do the right thing by taking the hard drive with proof the U.S. government had a part in the tests on Starro and the people the alien infected.

However, it is soon revealed that Peacemaker was on the mission to ensure the data didn't get released into the world, and he and Flag fight it out.

Their fight ends with Peacemaker stabbing Flag in the chest, and he then goes after Ratcatcher 2 after she took the hard drive when she witnessed the murder.

However, before Peacemaker can do away with her, Bloodsport finds the pair and shoots Cena's character, seemingly leaving him for dead.

The Thinker is also killed by Starro the Conqueror as the alien makes its escape from the prison.

Who was killed during the Suicide Squad's fight against Starro the Conqueror?

By the time the Suicide Squad go up against Starro the Conqueror in the film's third act, there aren't many of them left.

Quinn is the only member of the original Suicide Squad left standing, while Bloodsport, King Shark, Ratcatcher 2, and Polka-Dot Man are also still around.

Sadly, not all of them make it out alive during their fight with the alien, as Polka-Dot Man is killed when Starro steps on him after he used his polka-dots to disintegrate one of the alien's legs.

King Shark survives his encounter with Starro, while Bloodsport makes it out alive thanks to Ratcatcher 2 and her army of rodents.

Quinn also lives to see another day, after she stabs Starro in the eye with the javelin she was given by Javelin.

And, during the post-credits scenes, it was revealed that both Peacemaker and Weasel had survived.

The Suicide Squad is out in theaters and on HBO Max now.
