Exclusive: Alice Braga on The Suicide Squad & Going from Marvel to DC!

This Saturday at 12pm PST fans will be treated to the DC FanDome panel for Warner Bros.’ sequel The Suicide Squad. Today ComingSoon.net spoke 1:1 with The New Mutants actress Alice Braga and what fans can expect from the Suicide Squad panel!

“I think people are gonna love this film,” Braga told us. “I’m a big fan of James Gunn, I love ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and what he did with that. He brought fun and laughs and action to a superhero spaceship film. So I think he’s a very talented director and he’s bringing that to ‘The Suicide Squad’ and he’s bringing his vision and his energy as a creative person. It was great to join that cast, it’s an amazing cast! From Idris Elba to Viola to everyone. I’m a huge fan of Margot Robbie. I think the fans are really gonna love the panel, the panel is really fun!”

The actress, who plays Dr. Cecilia Reyes in New Mutants, also talked about hopping from a Marvel film to a DC film.

“It’s an honor,” Braga added. “I never thought this would happen and it did. Just in the sense of doing ‘New Mutants’ and then ‘Suicide Squad’ happened I was like, ‘Oh my God, wait, DC and Marvel?’ For a fan? For a nerd like me? That’s a trophy. I couldn’t ask for more! And it’s the best fans in the world. Comic fans are the best fans because they’re sweet, they’re excited , they know about it and they care for it. It’s the best fans you can have.”
