Spoilers for Suicide Squad follow.

Suicide Squad kicked off by revealing how most of the members got caught and landed in prison. One backstory we didn't see was Adam Beach's Slipknot. 

As the Suicide Squad was forming, Slipnot got out of a vehicle and decked a female soldier/guard. I believe he also made reference to not liking women (or such). 

Now Adam Beach reveals to Empire Magazine what went down with Slipknot leading up to that scene revealing he got into a tussle with a Justice League member, similar to Boomerang.

"David asked me, 'So they kidnapped and caught you -- what were you doing?' I said, 'Man, I was strangling Wonder Woman. What else was I doing?' He started laughing," Beach said (Slipnot's weapon of choice is a rope).

Slipknot's fate in the movie was also similar to what transpired in the comics, basically being set up by Boomerang; however, I believe Slipknot's fate in the movie was much worse than what happened in the comic book story.

"Suicide Squad" is now in theaters directed by David Ayer starring Will Smith as Deadshot, Jared Leto as the Joker, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Adam Beach as Slipknot, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo, and Scott Eastwood in an unknown role.


It feels good to be bad… Assemble a team of the world’s most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government’s disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren’t picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it’s every man for himself?
