Ratcatcher II stars extensively in “The Suicide Squad”, telling the story of his life and his close relationship with his late father, the original Ratcatcher (Taika Waititi). On several occasions, her ability to communicate with rats has saved her and her teammates, even as Bloodsport reveals he has a phobia of these rodents. He explains that his abusive father locked him in a crate with hungry rats as a form of discipline when he was a child, thus starting a lifelong fear that he never worked to overcome.
For the most part, this information is played for fun, especially as Sebastian (Jaws and Crisp Ratt) attempts to bond with Bloodsport from time to time. Come find out, it helped set the stage for some true character development in the midst of Starro’s destruction. In a last-ditch effort to take down the mind-controlling starfish, Ratcatcher II floods the streets with an army of rats that overthrow Starro and his reluctant subordinates. The plan pays off, with the horde of rats chewing every inch of Starro and ultimately killing him in horrific ways.
As all of this unfolded, poor Bloodsport found himself run over by thousands and thousands of rats as they rushed towards Starro. He didn’t hide his discomfort but seemed a little more open to Sebastian making a bed with his knees in the last shot of the film, at least.
