THE SUICIDE SQUAD: James Gunn Explains How The Final Scene Parallels The Last Shot Of GOTG VOL. 2 - SPOILERS

During a new interview, James Gunn has explained the similarities between the final scene of The Suicide Squad and the emotional dénouement of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Spoilers follow.

It's been a few weeks since The Suicide Squad was released, so director James Gunn is now happy to discuss some of the more spoiler-y aspects of the critically acclaimed DC Comics film.

During a video interview with IGN, the filmmaker was asked about the final shot of the movie, and whether it deliberately parallels the ending of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Just in case you need a recap: The finale of the MCU sequel finds Rocket watching fireworks blaze across the sky as the Ravagers pay tribute to the fallen Yondu, while The Suicide Squad ends with Bloodsport petting Sebastian the rat as he snuggles into his lap.

The obvious comparison stems from both scenes featuring cute, furry creatures, but Gunn feels that there are indeed some other similarities here. The sequences represent the respective characters recognizing the good in themselves, and facing the uncertain future with a sense of hope. Check out the video below for more.

The Suicide Squad is set for a Premium Digital debut on September 17, before it arrives on Blu-ray and DVD arrive on October 26. Do you plan on picking up a physical copy? Drop us a comment down below.
