Nathan Fillion has been chums with director James Gunn for a while. The Firefly star led Gunn’s horror comedy Slither back in 2006, he took up post as a sacrilegious hero called the Holy Avenger in the R-rated superhero comedy Super, and he had a small role in Guardians of the Galaxy as one of the alien criminals in the Kyln prison. Fillion also had a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that ended up being left on the cutting room floor, but now he’s going to play around with James Gunn’s latest comic book flick.
The Suicide Squad has lined up Nathan Fillion for a role in the DC Comics movie situated at Warner Bros. Pictures, and we still don’t know whether this is a sequel or a reboot or some kind of hybrid of the two. Read More »
Even though all the attention is on the future of Walt Disney properties coming to the big screen and their new streaming service Disney+ this fall, Warner Bros. Pictures couldn’t help but get some news out there about one of their upcoming DC Comics movies, and this one comes from one of Marvel’s most beloved directors.
The Suicide Squad is letting director James Gunn play in a different comic book sandbox for awhile before he returns to Marvel to take the helm of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. But just because he’s having fun with a DC Comics title doesn’t mean he’ll be leaving everything from his time at Marvel behind. One of his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 supporting stars is heading over to The Suicide Squad for a key role on the team. Read More »

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.
