James Gunn, writer and director of this year Suicide Squad, while responding to a fan on Twitter who confirmed whether Cory Pitzner, known by his villainous alias The Detachable Kid, survived the first fifteen minutes of the film.
Played by Nathan Fillion, TDK is part of the first of two super captains we see Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) sent to the South American island nation of Corto Maltese. This was also the one she expected to die on landing, used as bait to be slaughtered by the Corto Maltese army.
The first team massacre included TDK using his superpowers – including the ability to separate his limbs from the rest of his body – which contributed little to the fight. The last time we saw him on screen in the movie, he was bleeding and in pain on the sandy ground. It is fair to assume that TDK was among the deaths of the bloodbath, and many of us did.
However, we never really witnessed the demise of TDK like we did with most of the team, which led to the hypothesis that perhaps TDK was somehow able to survive the crash. that bloody encounter. One fan on Twitter pointed out the theory to Gunn, writing: “There’s a theory that TDK is still alive and I’m sure a lot of people want to see Nathan Fillion again.”
Gunn, who interacts with fans quite often on social media, confirmed that TDK is indeed “definitely still alive after we saw him”. It raises the question of whether TDK doesn’t appear in the post-credits scene, like Peacemaker (John Cena) and Weasel, is a deliberate choice. Can we expect to see more TDKs in future Gunn works?
Gunn is currently working on the third part of Guardians of the Galaxy and his upcoming drama People of Peace will premiere next month, on January 13. Check out Gunn’s Twitter response to TDK below.
The latest DC movie is officially released on 4K, Blu-ray and Digital.
