Looks like writer/director James Gunn truly is using a similar formula with DC’s The Suicide Squad as he did with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy – at least when it comes to casting. Gunn chose Dave Bautista, a former wrestler, to play one of the members of his ensemble in Guardians, and now a new report says that former wrestler John Cena is in talks to join returning players Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, and fellow newcomer Idris Elba in the ensemble cast of The Suicide Squad.

Despite reports that James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad is going to be a “total reboot” of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, that seems less and less likely to be the case. Viola Davis, who played the ruthless government agent Amanda Waller in the 2016 comic book movie, will be back in The Suicide Squad, joining Jai Courtney in reprising their roles from the first movie.

Last week, the best news of the year came with word that Disney and Marvel Studios had reversed their decision to remove James Gunn as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The filmmaker will return to the franchise that he originated in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but before that, James Gunn will have to make good on his deal to enter the DC Extended Universe with The Suicide Squad.

The Suicide Squad has been referred to as the sequel to the 2016 movie Suicide Squad, but according to producer Peter Safran, we shouldn’t be thinking of this movie as Suicide Squad 2 at all. While we’ve heard rumblings that this will be a soft reboot of the franchise that brings some bad people together to do some good, Safran calls The Suicide Squad a “total reboot.” Read More »

suicide squad 2 plot

When Will Smith left James Gunn‘s Suicide Squad sequel, there was some question of whether or not a new actor would replace him, or if Smith’s character Deadshot would be cut. The answer came quickly, when Idris Elba took over the part. Now, we might know why. Early Suicide Squad 2 plot details reveal that Deadshot is a central figure in Gunn’s script, and that the story is drawing heavily from a classic 1980s comic run from Jon Ostrander and Kim Yale.

Suicide Squad 2 Cast Idris Elba

Deadshot will appear in Suicide Squad 2 after all – in the form of Idris Elba. Will Smith, who played Deadshot in the first Suicide Squad, recently departed the upcoming sequel due to scheduling issues, which lead us to question if the character was going to show up at all. Now we have our answer. Idris Elba will take Smith’s place in the Suicide Squad 2 cast. This makes Elba the first official bit of casting we have for the follow-up, as it’s still unclear if Margot Robbie, or any other actor from Suicide Squad, will be back for a second round.

Looks like someone else is going to have to say the titular line in Suicide Squad 2. Will Smith, who played Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot in the 2016 anti-hero film, is no longer part of the Suicide Squad 2 cast. Smith’s departure has been chalked up to scheduling conflicts. James Gunn is on board to write and direct the follow-up, which is rumored to be both a sequel and a reboot that will hopefully make us all forget about the terrible first movie.

It seemed like Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn had flown the nest. After becoming the breakout star of 2016’s Suicide Squad, Robbie set a spin-off for the beloved Batman rogue in the upcoming “girl gang” film Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn).

Harley Quinn’s future looked bright as Warner Bros. went through upheaval after upheaval, and the fate of the Suicide Squad sequel and the multiple Jared Leto Joker spin-offs were put into question. But now, following the studio’s tapping of James Gunn to helm Suicide Squad 2, it seems that Robbie may return to her first squad once again.
