About this Deal
If you thought director James Gunn did wonders for Marvel's cosmic misfits, just wait till you see what he has in store for DC Comics' most colorful bad guys.
The "Guardians of the Galaxy" director gave the world a first look at his massive cast –and the many explosions that come with them – in "The Suicide Squad" (in theaters Aug. 6, 2021), a follow-up of sorts to the 2016 hit "Suicide Squad." Gunn unveiled a character introduction and a behind-the-scenes clip that shows a gritty 1970s war-film vibe with the filmmaker's signature style.
"I loved the movie 'The Dirty Dozen,' and this was like a supervillain version," said Gunn, who added that "The Suicide Squad" has been "by far the most fun I’ve ever had making a movie."
Gunn revealed a good chunk of his very large Squad on Saturday. Margot Robbie reprising her role as Harley Quinn, is among the returning members from the original movie alongside Viola Davis (as Amanda Waller), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag) and Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang).
New additions include Idris Elba as Bloodsport, Pete Davidson as Blackguard, John Cena as Peacemaker, Michael Rooker as Savant, Peter Capaldi as The Thinker, Flula Borg as Javelin, David Dastmalchian as Polka Dot Man, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher 2, Nathan Fillion as T.D.K., Mayling Ng as Mongal, Alice Braga as Sol Soria, and Sean Gunn as Weasel.
