One of the biggest mistakes Disney made was dismissing James Gunn. Oh well, looks like us DC fans will prosper and perspire because we have some character announcements for Suicide Squad 2! One of the best things about Gunn is that he is weird and talented which Guardians of the Galaxy proves. There has been a lot of movement on the casting side of things for the new movie. Idris Elba has nearly sealed the deal to take over as Deadshot, replacing Will Smith after the actor left due to scheduling issues. That casting alone is amazing and it doesn’t make me miss Smith one bit. I loved him the role but who better to put on the costume? The status of Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn has been up in the air but I am pretty certain we will see her in it. What about the rest of the team? Word has it that Joel Kinnaman is out, so will Rick Flagg be replaced as well? What about mainstay Captain Boomerang or Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller? All of these answers should come to light soon because today we got news of some possible new members of the Squad!
Rumored to be joining the ranks are Ratcatcher, King Shark, Polka-Dot Man and Peacemaker. Wanna know more about these characters then hit the links on their names to get your research on! I love it, you know why I love it? It’s weird. These aren’t characters that we’ve seen before, well King Shark has made his DCTV and animated movie appearances, but the rest are weird and unknown. This is perfect, keep digging deep into DC’s roster and bringing more B-Z-listers into the mainstream. No official word on these characters as of yet nor the actors who will play them but we will keep you updated! Suicide Squad 2 is due out on August 6th, 2021!
