The Suicide Squad

Trivia: In the prison sequence, at one point a TV is visible in the background playing the famous and infamous cult-film "The Toxic Avenger." "The Toxic Avenger" was produced by the independent studio Troma Entertainment. Director James Gunn actually got his start working for Troma, writing the cult favorite "Tromeo and Juliet," and doing various other behind-the-scenes jobs on several other Troma productions. As a thank-you, Gunn often includes Troma easter-eggs in his films.


Trivia: King Shark was originally going to be a hammerhead, but director James Gunn found it challenging for a character with monocular vision to interact with other characters, so he went with the great white design instead.
