During yesterday's press junket for the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, actor Jai Courtney talked a bit more with Access Hollywood about his role as Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad, as well as the anticipation to meet his all-star castmates. "Everyone's been in training, but we're yet to kind of all converge and get down, but that's happening this week," he said. "I can't wait. It's really cool. It's going to be [as] big as you can imagine and, you know, it's a really interesting world." Courtney then discussed how meeting the expectations of director David Ayer might bring some friendly competition to the set when filming starts next month. "It does attract a certain amount of talent and dedication and [David] really demands that," he said. "I mean, I'd heard a lot about what he put the guys through on Fury in order to prepare for that film and it fascinated me. I mean, you don't always get that. That's such a privilege as an actor when you are presented with a challenge and expected to really bring it and match and kind of come along. I think the group he's assembled, there's probably going to be a really healthy amount of competition between us. You know, not just to do it like the macho elements of like getting in shape and stuff....And you bring out the best in one another when you demand that of each other." 

While visiting Seattle's 106.1 KISS FM radio station again to promote Insurgent earlier this week, actor Jai Courtney talked for the first time about Suicide Squad, in which he plays George "Digger" Harkness aka Captain Boomerang. "I'm not on set [yet, but] I'm about to ship out as we speak," he said. "I'm going to Toronto to [start] shooting." Courtney was then asked if his bulked physique is for the supervillain role. "Yeah it is a little," he replied, adding, "I'm playing an Aussie, so I've just been eating meat pie and drinking beer; it's such a stretch."

In a separate interview with Seattle's King5 news station, the Aussie actor had expressed excitement to be playing an Australian character with Captain Boomerang, while also reconfirming that he'll be in Toronto, Canada next week for the DC Comics adaptation. In other Suicide Squad news, the Associated Press recently recorded Jared Leto on video confirming what we've already known about his bleached blonde hair: "It's for a film called Suicide Squad [and] I'm playing the Joker, so it's part of the process."

Among the Suicide Squad stars currently gearing up for filming in Toronto, Canada, next month is Jared Leto, who has returned to Instagram with yet another photo teasing prep to play the Joker.
