Jai Courtney talks competition between Suicide Squad cast

Jai Courtney has been discussing his involvement with Suicide Squad, and has revealed just how excited he is to link up with his new cast-mates on the DC project.

"Everyone’s been in training," he tells Access Hollywood, "but we’re yet to kind of all converge and get down, but that’s happening this week. 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."

And while some might be intimidated by lining up alongside the likes of Will Smith and Jared Leto, Courtney is enthused by the prospect of raising his game accordingly…

"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."

Directed by David Ayer and co-starring Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman and Viola Davis, Suicide Squad
