Saturday at DC Fandome, James Gunn introduced the new team and gave us the first glimpse of The Suicide Squad.
A “roll call” trailer for Gunn’s Suicide Squad sequel was shown during DC FanDome that introduces the cast and the characters they are portraying. The cast includes Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, John Cena as Peacemaker, Pete Davidson as Black Guard, Michael Rooker as Savant, Sean Gunn as Weasel, Idris Elba as Bloodsport, Peter Capaldi as The Thinker, David Dastmalchian as Polka Dot Man, Daniela Melchior as Ratcatcher 2, Flula Borg as Javelin, Nathan Fillion as T.D.K. (aka The Detachable Kid), Mayling Ng as Mongal and Alice Braga as Sulsoria.
A behind-the-scenes sneak peek video was also shown that includes our first look at the up-coming The Suicide Squad. While not much is known about The Suicide Squad movie itself, according to James Gunn it’s going to be like a gritty ’70s war movie.
When Suicide Squad was released in 2016 it a had well-received first trailer, but the movie garnered mostly lukewarm to negative reviews and not a lot of enthusiasm. It did however do well enough at the box office to earn a sequel. How well will James Gunn “The Suicide Squad” movie will do? Unfortunately, we will have to wait about another year to find out.
The Suicide Squad opens August 6, 2021
