Jennifer Holland’s Emilia Harcourt was confirmed to appear in DC’s upcoming film “Black Adam” starring Dwayne Johnson. In an interview with The Direct, Steve Agee who plays Economos on Peacemaker said Holland’s Emilia Harcourt will be in Black Adam! Read below:
“I don’t think I’ll be joining her in Black Adam. I think Black Adam has finished shooting already. So I think I missed that train. But, you know, much like King Shark showing up in other movies, I think they’ve set up a world where John Economos could easily pop up here and there. Much like the way Cobie Smulders’ character did in the Marvel movies or like Nick Fury. Kinda just walking in and out of things here and there; it makes sense. He’s part of ARGUS, and he’s around Belle Reve a lot. I definitely think it’s possible, and I have my fingers crossed for it… Fingers crossed, man.”
In a recent interview with Collider’s Ladies Night, Holland shared her experience while playing the character through a movie and a spin-off series. This extended to how Harcourt evolved throughout the production of The Suicide Squad to the endearingly violent individual audiences have grown to love in Peacemaker. “She was just a comms hub tech who became sort of a more important character as [James Gunn] was writing The Suicide Squad,” Holland said, “and at some point, he was like, ‘I’m gonna give her a name from the comics so that when the fans watch the credits they go, oh my gosh, that was Emilia Harcourt! And they have something to be excited about, and it’s a little bit of an Easter egg.'”
Jennifer Holland will appear only in a minor scene towards the end of the film, After the events of Peacemaker Holland’s Emilia Harcourt will recruit a new team and James Gunn also revealed there will be another Suicide Squad spin-off series.
