WARNING: FOR SPOILERS suicide squad (2021)
One of the More Absurd Aspects of the Polka Dot Man (aka Abner Krill) suicide squadBut, according to actor David Dustmalchian, his arc and final moments still form the heart of the entire film. suicide squad Dustmalchian’s first (and possibly last) outing as the polka dot man, whose dark humor and deadpan delivery earned him enough love for audiences to become a fan-favorite overnight. writer and director James Gunn Discreetly Changes the Polka Dot Man’s Backstory To make him a more sympathetic person for the film.
suicide squad It turns out that the experiment was conducted on Abner and his siblings by their abusive mother (Lynn Ashe), a scientist working for Star Labs. These experiments were not only the genesis of Abner’s powers, but also the psychological trauma that would eventually force him to kill his own mother. His murder is what leads Abner to Belle Reeve Penitentiary – a correctional facility for Metahumans and Black Sight where Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) Recruits members for Task Force X (aka The Suicide Squad). Abner’s arc is eventually resolved in a poignant (yet comical) moment in which he weapons his trauma to seriously injure Staro.

Check out the actor’s full comments below:
The only thing was that we didn’t shoot the fight with Staro until the end of production, and it was like six months of shooting. So, I have six months to build toward the “I’m a superhero” moment. Which was a great gift in many ways, because I had to really familiarize myself and fully incorporate Abner into all of his other scenes, and all the other discoveries that I was making about him during this journey. . It made me more emotionally impactful when we got to the Battle of Staro.
The only drawback to this was the fear looming over my mind, because it’s such an important scene, and I really wanted to get it right for James. I mean, he wrote this beautiful character and this beautiful scene, and it’s such an important moment. I put a lot of pressure on myself to figure out what that scene would mean in order to fulfill his vision for his screenplay, and also for the real meaning of the audience’s experience.
Jacob was never ready to make fun of Abner’s depression or his suffering. He puts a lot of heart into the characters, even those who for all intents and purposes are the deserving of jokes, which makes it all the more resonant. Because I think we’ve all been bullied at some point, especially those of us who were in geek territory. But everyone knows what it sounds like she isn’t; not fit; So that people judge you and ridicule you, and then suffer and suffer from something that persecutes you.
Granted, it’s an interdimensional virus in Abner’s case. But for some of us, it’s insecurities or a physical trait that we really struggle with our insecurities, or depression or anxiety or social anxiety or feelings of failure professionally; a sense of personal failure. All that stuff haunts us all. I think James has synced so well with the writing of this character. I am very lucky that I got a chance to play his character.

The actor may not have matriculated himself, nor has the power to pull out the incendiary polka dots with his fingers, but he understands what it’s supposed to be like “Something hurts you.” Dustmalchian’s relationship with the material is certainly visible on-screen, as the polka dot man is one of the film’s absolute standouts.
