The story for Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is still shrouded in secrecy. We don’t know much at all, but we do know there will be several new DC characters making their big-screen debuts. Jai Courtney also previously talked about how he adjusted to Gunn’s approach to The Suicide Squad and explained that the movie is going to have a different flavor than the first movie. He said:
“I think it’s kind of got a different flavor. There’s a whole bunch of new characters. James Gunn has an approach to things that is uniquely his; he pulls a lot of that into the Suicide Squad world. And I think that it fits really well, and audiences are going to have a lot of fun with it.”
The Suicide Squad cast also includes Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, Peter Capaldi, Pete Davidson, Idris Elba, Nathan Fillion, Sean Gunn, Michael Rooker, David Dastmalchian, Storm Reid, Taika Waititi and John Cena.
The film is set for release on August 6th, 2021.
