We already knew that James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad was going to feature a pretty stellar cast, including Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, and Joel Kinnaman all returning to reprise their respective roles as Harley Quinn, Amanda Waller, Captain Boomerang, and Rick Flag from David Ayer’s 2016 film Suicide Squad. There’s also been previous announcements of new additions to the cast.
Now Gunn has revealed the full cast for the upcoming movie. See below to the full list and which familiar faces are also making a return.
James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad is already shaping up to be one of the most exciting DC Extended Universe films. The film will bring back some original characters like Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as squad leader Rick Flag, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller.
And, of course, there are the newcomers to the cast like Idris Elba, who is playing a role that has yet to be named. But he isn’t the only one new to the cast. Reports say that Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi and Saturday Night Live comedian Pete Davidson will be a part of the soft reboot. More on the report below.
Actors jumping between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe isn’t anything out of the ordinary. In fact, it happens at the creative level as well, with James Gunn being one of the most recent directors to helm titles in both universes. Now, another filmmaker and actor has joined him, but just for a starring role.
Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi is said to be joining the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy director Gunn’s DC project The Suicide Squad, where he will appear alongside the likes of returning stars from the first movie such as Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, and Viola Davis. Fellow newcomers to the cast include Idris Elba, Nathan Fillion, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Flula Borg, and Steve Agee. More on the report below.
