Flula Borg

James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad cast has been infiltrated by the borg – actor Flula Borg, that is.

the suicide squad cast storm reid

We still don’t know who Idris Elba is playing in James Gunn‘s Suicide Squad sequel The Suicide Squad. But here’s something we do know: his character has a daughter. A Wrinkle in Time actress Storm Reid has just joined The Suicide Squad cast as Elba’s daughter.

This certainly seems like a holdover from the original plan to have Elba play Deadshot, since Deadshot had a daughter in the first film. But after Elba was cast as Deadshot, it was then decided to have him play a different character, in case O.G. Deadshot Will Smith might want to return for future sequels.

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.

Idris Elba in the Suicide Squad sequel

While Idris Elba is still appearing in Suicide Squad sequel The Suicide Squad, he won’t be playing Deadshot after all.
