The Suicide Squad is an action-packed film that includes equal parts humor and brutal fighting scenes. It’s what the 2016 Suicide Squad should’ve been, but failed to deliver. One thing that makes The Suicide Squad so much better than the 2016 original is the surprising twists that come at the end of the movie. Sure, Harley Quinn’s badass moments, King Shark’s hilarious naivete, and Bloodsport’s fear of rats all made the film badass, but you know who really stole the show, even in his ever-so-brief screentime? The Weasel.
10 minutes into The Suicide Squad, nearly half of the “Task Force X” die. Captain Boomerang is killed by an enemy helicopter. Blackguard, played by Saturday Night Live‘s Pete Davidson, has his face shot off. Mongal is burned to death. You get the drift.
The first casualty of The Suicide Squad was the Weasel. Described as a murderous anthropomorphic animal who has killed 27 children, the Weasel is first introduced as a member of the Task Force X. He neither speaks English nor understands exactly what’s going on (i.e he’s on a mission with a promise of certain death). But his lack of intelligence doesn’t excuse the fact that he’s “deadly.”
So “deadly,” in fact, you’d think the murderer of 27 children would make it to the actual battleground—show some of his murderous tendencies, eat a few soldiers, etc. But he “dies” the second the team deploys to Corto Maltese. All because no one at ARGUS bothered to check if he could swim.
That’s the last we see of the Weasel…or so we think. The film’s ending reveals some interesting developments.
What happens to the Weasel?
Of course, the Weasel, uh, weaseled himself out of the death. To be fair, Savant (Michael Rooker) never checked to see if the Weasel was still breathing; he simply declared him dead.
So, what’s next for the murderous animal? Not sure. Once he awakened (is that the right term here?), he ventured into the forest of Corto Maltese, possibly heading to kill more children. Yikes.
This won’t be our last time seeing the Weasel, though. Considering how much fans and critics alike have enjoyed The Suicide Squad since its release, it’s not a stretch to think a few sequels and continuations could pop off. And since most of the task force is dead, it’s safe to assume that the Weasel could potentially be recruited. Hell, we might even see him in HBO Max’s Peacemaker, considering The Suicide Squad director James Gunn wrote that entire series himself.
Either way, know that more Weasel appearances will probably be coming—that cliffhanger probably is in there for a reason.
