After months and months of teasing and speculating, director James Gun finally made it official as he announced the entire cast of the upcoming DCEU film Suicide Squad 2 via his official Twitter account. The reveal gave us things we already knew but also brought to light some cast memebers we didn’t. Check out his tweet below!
The complete cast for Gunn’s Suicide Squad 2 includes David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, Maylin Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Deigo Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Brage, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, and Michael Rooker.
We already know that Davis will return as Amanda Waller while Joel Kinnamen returns as Rick Flagg, Margot Robbie plays Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney will be back as Captain Bommerang and it appears that Idris Elba, who at one time was supposed to replace Will Smith as Deadshot, will now sport the role of Bronze Tiger. The DC character was a member of the League of Assassins in the comics before joining the Squad and he has recently been played by action star Michael Jai White on The CW’s Arrow.
Gunn will not only direct but he is writing the script as well with Chuck Roven and Peter Safran acting as producers and Nik Korda serving as executive producer.
Plot details are non existent but hopefully that will all change in the coming months and the film is set to hit theaters on August 6th, 2021 so we have a long wait ahead of us for this one. As always, keep it locked and loaded at your favorite site for all things action for more 411 to follow!
