‘The Suicide Squad’ Star Flula Borg Will Create ‘Friendly Chaos’ With Javelin Appearances Before the Film Opens

For The Suicide Squad, writer/director James Gunn picked from the most obscure DC Comics villains. One of the new members of the squad is Javelin, played by Flula Borg. Playing Javelin in the movie wasn’t enough for Borg, so he’s looking to continue making appearances as Javelin as The Suicide Squad hits theaters and HBO Max on Aug. 6.

Borg spoke with Showbiz Cheat Sheet by phone on July 29. We’ll have a lot more with Borg and the cast of The Suicide Squad, but first Borg revealed his plans to create chaos upon the release of the film.

During the phone call, Borg answered the door to a delivery. Warner Bros. sent him his Suicide Squad costume for this week’s purposes. 

“They just delivered me my Javelin costume,” Borg said. “So I can’t just say leave it outside because someone would steal it.”

Granted, Borg does not get to keep the Javelin costume either.

“Well, I can borrow it I think is the rule, which I will take,” Borg said. “I’m very happy to do that. But yes, of course, I’m going to steal it, move to Brazil and change all of my numbers.”

Borg was still formulating his plan when we spoke, but he said he might just wear the Javelin costume to Trader Joe’s. 

“My goal is to create, which is what I really love to do, let’s create a little confusion and some friendly chaos,” Borg said. “Not mean spirited, just confusion and fun times. That’s my brand. Just general confusion. My most favorite reaction is when I do something and someone just says, ‘What?’ That’s my favorite.”

Borg already has a popular YouTube channel where he creates original comedic and musical videos. 

“I think at some point, we are on Earth to entertain ourselves and hopefully other people appreicate this,” Borg said.

Creating the Javelin costume in ‘The Suicide Squad’

Javelin is hardly one of The Suicide Squad’s badasses. His bright yellow and blue costume wouldn’t make Bloodsport (Idris Elba) or Peacemaker (John Cena) flinch, but that’s all right by Borg.

“Dude, I loved it,” Borg said. “I’m not the only one to say it so this isn’t just a brag or something, but I felt like I had the most classic of the costumes. That was really, really fun for me because it was basically me living the comics that I was reading when I was a child except I’m wearing them now. Unlike actual comic books, they don’t get moldy. This thing smells delicious.”

Borg remembered his costume fittings  for The Suicide Squad too.

“There’s one for some effects that they had to build, but besides this I had one that I wore,” Borg said. “The costume designers and that whole team is amazing. They’re the best in the business. As cool as it looks on camera, it is really cool in person as well. It’s like when you meet a star, like oh, I hope they’re not a ding dong in real life. No, they’re just as cool as they are on camera and that’s how this costume was.”
