When director James Gunn showcased some exciting behind the scenes footage at DC Fandome showcasing his reboot of The Suicide Squad, fans were instantly sold of on his vision. The sequel/reboot blends some of the surviving members of the first film and mixes them up with some truly obscure and bizarre new villains. Take a look at the new lineup below:
Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, Joel Kinnaman’s Rick Flag, Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang, Idris Elba’s Bloodsport, John Cena’s Peacemaker, Peter Capaldi’s The Thinker, Flula Borg’s Javelin, Daniela Melchior’s Ratcatcher 2, Michael Rooker’s Savant, David Dastmalchian’s Polka-Dot Man, Mayling Ng’s Mongal, Nathan Fillion’s TDK, Pete Davidson’s Blackguard, Sean Gunn’s Weasel, and Steve Agee’s King Shark are all featured on the upcoming Empire magazine cover. In addition, the subscribers-only cover features a more light-hearted image with James Gunn sitting in with the crew. With such a massive cast, it will be interesting to see where Gunn chose to go with all of them.
The Suicide Squad is scheduled to be released by Warner Bros. Pictures in the United States on August 6, 2021.
