john cena suicide squad

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. Elba was previously announced to be taking over the role from Will Smith after Smith left due to scheduling issues. Now, it’s been revealed Deadshot has been removed from the movie entirely, and Elba will play a new character.

Suicide Squad 2 group

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 »

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.

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.
